“Incredible!!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

Rappelling down into the cool, refreshing waters of the Cenote at Ek Balam was the experience of a life time. It was exciting, fun and worth the drive from Cancun. Visually stunning, and so private and honored, this site is not to be missed. The meal afterwards was delicious and the memories from this place with stay with us forever!!

“Beautiful Natural Swim hole”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Beautiful cenote that you may or may not have to work hard to get to. You can walk the 2km to the Cenote, or hire a bike and rider to take you there!

ruins were carefully protected....were able to see well kept murals, paintings and artifacts and you can still climb the tallest buildings. Easy walk on well maintained paths...

“STUNNING!!! Get there early”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We were the only ones swimming in this cenote!! It was a great experience. You could use the rope swing to jump into the cenote, you could also abseil into the water as well. This was our favourite cenote when visiting this region - don't miss it!!
