This entire site is devoted to the Amazing and legendary Black Jaguar warriors. Ek’Balam is composed of several temples, two palaces and a large pyramid La Torre which is in the center of the city. The enormous dimensions of the buildings, highly decorated facades, and constructed walls surrounding the center of this Mayan city are what defines this ruin.
It is the architecture and design of The Tower what amazed archaeologists. Different from Uxmal and Chichen Itza; builders and artists used stucco and limestone mortar, a pliable material that could be modeled into distinct forms and painted over.
After this visit we take a swim in a close by cenote and continue our tour to the City of Valladolid which has been recognized as a Magical Town and lives up to its name by the beautiful colonial buildings, its colorful houses and the tradition of its handcrafts.
A final highlight will encompass a delicious Yucatecan lunch and a shopping tour in the city.
