Ek' Balam is a 1.1 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Ekbalam, Yucatán, Mexico that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible year-round.
It is an easy and short hike from the parking area to the structures. However, the heat and humidity can be extreme. Make sure you drink plenty of water for exploring. There are 45 mapped structures, the most impressive being El Torre...the main tower located in the Central Plaza measuring at 500ft long, 200ft wide and 100ft high. It provides a wonderful view of the site and surrounding jungle from the top. There is also a nice cenote close by where you can go swimming to cool off.
