Ek Balam & Coba Tour

Ek Balam is the title given to the Mayan ruler who, from 300 AD, founded and ruled a loosely-organized region that would later become known as the Kingdom of Talol. This settlement, which is today called Ek Balam (“Dark Jaguar”), grew to some 12 km2 and included a 1 km2 sacred central plaza where the elite resided. This small central zone was protected by three low walls.

Ek Balam has 45 structures, among them an enormous acropolis measuring 146 meters long, 55 meters wide and 29 meters high. It is here where the most elaborately decorated tomb in the entire Yucatan Peninsula is found. This tomb is full of fascinating, enigmatic symbols that will be easily understood by the hundreds of Latter Day Saints churchgoers who visit the site every day under the experienced guidance of Cancun LDS Tours.

Ek Balam is easy to reach from Cancun, Playa del Carmen, the Riviera Maya and Tulum, so when you visit this area of the Mexican Caribbean, you should not miss out on the opportunity to experience this wonderful contact with your spiritual and historical roots.


Mounting bikes/pedicab are provided to explore at Coba. A taxi tricycle is available for moms and babies, there are also smaller bikes available for children ages 7-11 (otherwise, there are taxi tricycles for them too). This is one of the greatest family tours we offer. It is informative and safe. At Coba you can climb all of the buildings, see crocodiles and visit an authentic Mayan village, seeing their lifestyle and wildlife.

Your encounter with the Maya culture starts with a 1,500 year old historical journey to the ancestral city of Coba, an archaeological site hidden deep inside the rain forest of the southeastern end of the Yucatan.

Investigations carried out to date have allowed us to understand that Coba has a long history of prehispanic occupation. This occupation would have begun around 200 or 100 BC when there was a settlement of low platforms and wood-and-palm constructions. It was after 100 AD whenCoba underwent a remarkable demographic, social and political growth that would cause it to become one of the largest, most powerful cities of the northern Yucatan Peninsula.
