Discover how the great pre-Columbian city of Chichen Itza played an important role in Mayan civilization around 600 to 1200 AD and remained a centre of worship and pilgrimage until the arrival of the Spanish. It is still considered sacred by the Mayans on the Yucatan Peninsula.
After visiting the site of Chichen Itza we make a short stop at Ek Balam, one of the last archaeological sites on the Yucatan Peninsula. Ek Balam is a Mayan name that can be translated as "Black Jaguar" or "Star Jaguar". It consists of several temples, two huge palaces and a large pyramid in the middle of the area.
On this site you can see the incredible dimensions of the buildings. Inside the walled square are the most important buildings, around which are several different types of buildings. You can also see the ruins of Coba from the height of the main pyramid.
