Discovering the Hidden Gems of Yucatan: Ek Balam, Rio Lagartos, and Las Coloradas!

Experience flamingo flocks and pink lakes on Rio Lagartos, unravel the mysteries of the ancient Mayans at Ek Balam, and taste the real Mexican flavor in a tequila factory on this unique private tour that has it all – and lunch is included! This tour combines a visit to the archaeological complex Ek Balam with an immersive journey into Yucatan’s amazing nature.



  • The ancient city of Ek Balam, named after its last governor, Black Jaguar, is one of the last discovered Mayan cities and opened to the public only recently. You will see the places where sacrifices were performed, climb the Acropolis - the governor’s palace, considered the biggest Mayan monument so far, and try to resolve the altar’s mystery, which guards the entrance to the kingdom of dead.

  • The biosphere reserve Ria Lagartos, where we will wade through the mangroves on small boats, observing flocks of flamingos, Cayman crocodiles and other inhabitants of the reserve searching of the symbol of good luck – the "sea cockroach".

  • Las Coloradas. It’s a valley of pink lakes. Due to the high content of minerals and salts, the water gains a special pink color and its consistency is like one of the Dead Sea.
