Connect with the Mayan heritage through the history and the sights of Ek Balam.

Ek’Balam (Star Jaguar) is a Mayan city that had its maximum development during the Late Classic (600-850 / 900 AD) and that possibly was the seat of the kingdom of “Tlalol”.

In Rio Lagartos, a boat will take us to travel large areas of estuary where all kinds of birds find a refuge to nest and feed. Throughout the place we will see 4 kinds of mangroves, in which you can see white herons, pelicans, cormorants, ospreys, storks and on their banks observe some crocodiles sunbathing. Then we will arrive at an estuary that will give us access to see more closely the pink flamingos while they feed.

At the end of the sighting of flamingos you can go to the “Mayan Bath” where you will enjoy cooling off in a mud of pink or golden waters, this due to its high concentrations of sulfur, minerals, salts and algae that it possesses, which act as exfoliants for the skin, leaving a feeling of softness throughout the body.

Thanks to its high amounts of salt in this mud you will float with ease and its accumulation creates a white foam that will completely envelop you giving the feeling of being in a jacuzzi, but of course 100% natural.
