Ek Balam, also known as the City of the Black Jaguar, enigmatic archaeological site recently discovered is an ancient Mayan city ruin site.  This ancient city reached the height of its importance from 600 to 900 CE until it was abandoned, has an  unique style evident in the beauty of its walled buildings and well preserved sculptures.
After it was abandoned, it was literally engulfed by the surrounding jungle and only recently discovered and excavated. Ek Balam features four beautiful buildings with intricate Mayan carvings and sculptures, many of which are still very visible.  Enjoy a hike and mountain bike ride through the Mayan paths, deep into the jungle of Nuevo Xcan Mayan Village, to find 3 spectacular adventure cenotes (sink holes)

Click here for a larger image - Intricate Mayan Carvings You enter Ek Balam along one of the site's raised causeways leading to the newly reconstructed freestanding arch, get to the top of the “Acropolis” one of the biggest pyramids in the Yucatan Peninsula . Entry into the city was thought to be closed off by sealing up the arch entryway and the existence of the defensive walls all around the perimeter.

One of the largest restored buildings in Ek Balam is La Torre. The base of La Torre is extremely large measuring over 500 feet long and approximately half as wide and nearly 100 feet tall. The impressive La Torre can be climbed allowing you to get a close up view of the stucco work lying beneath each thatched roof. Just about at the top you will find a Chenes style serpent mouth doorway which is intricately carved from eyebrows to molars. You will find some of the best restoration work on the most intricate carvings on the La Torre.
Other restorations include the ball court , Las Gemales whose platform supports two identical temples and staircases and in the South Plaza, two stelae.

Ek Balam is also unique because it is one of the quieter archaeological sites and is not overwhelmed with tourists. Please note that because this ruin site is smaller and not as developed, there are fewer facilities. There is one restroom but beverages are not available for purchase on site. Be sure to take a few pesos to give to the bathroom attendants who take great care to provide clean toilet facilities for visitors.
