Ek Balam & Valladolid

A taste of the authentic Mexico

This tour brings you inland. We travel to Ek Balam, where you visit the most recently opened Mayan temples.

This archaeological site is much less touristy than other sites in the area, but is certainly worth a visit. This ruin has more architectural styles than any other site and has some beautiful preserved images that cannot be found anywhere else.

From there we drive to the nearby colonial town of Valladolid. We start with a visit of the local market and take a pleasant city walk. Admire the typical architecture with its colonnades and its wonderful color palette. Discover local delicacies and drinks, learn to distinguish tequila from mezcal, find out where the Belgian “chocolate” pride really comes from. As icing on the cake, enjoy a delicious lunch à la carte in one of the most prestigious restaurants in Valladolid.
