    TOUR EK BALAM Y RÍO LAGARTOS

    RIO LAGARTOS 


    Famous for the number of pink flamingos that arrive between January and September, and also being home to the sea turtle; Lagartos River is a beautiful fishing port that offers fun and adventure, at the same time as it protects the Biosphere and the latter does it with the flora and fauna of the area.

    Bernal Díaz del Castillo wrote in his story «True story of the conquest of New Spain» that, in one of his exploration trips, the crew had the need to look for fresh water, and believing that it was a river, it was decided that they would explore it. While advancing inside this, they noticed the large number of crocodiles that inhabited. That’s how they named it Rio Lagartos.

    It was declared a Faunistic Refuge Area on June 26, 1979, covering an area of ​​47,820 hectares. Likewise, tourism has been one of the most outstanding sectors, particularly of an ecological nature.

    Among the most significant attractions in Rio Lagartos are the flamingos that come to feed themselves and to nest in the Biosphere, and that offer an incredible spectacle when in huge flocks they paint the sky of a beautiful rose. You can also see four types of mangroves: red, black, white and botoncillo, where you can admire pelicans, white herons, storks, and on the shores usually observe crocodiles taking sunbaths.

    EK-BALAM


    If you are looking for a city full of peace and adventure, Ek Balam is an ideal option.

    Ek Balam is a name that in the Mayan language means «black jaguar» or «dark jaguar». This city was the Mayan capital of a territory known as Talol ‘in its years of splendor.

    It has around 40 structures, one of the most important is a beautiful arch that welcomes visitors, the acropolis, the twin pyramids and a stele that represents a ruler of Ek Balam.

    The acropolis is the largest structure and contains the Ukit Kan Le’k Tok ‘tomb, 146 m long, 55 m wide and 29 m wide.

    It is a spectacular archaeological zone in the heart of Yucatan. Not as famous as Chichén Itzá, therefore, there will be no huge ranks or crowds to take a good picture, and you will enjoy a quiet walk.

    You will be able to admire the great artistic work of the Mayans, the beautiful murals carved in low relief, and an incredible panoramic view where you will feel that you are literally on the roof of the Mayan world.
