Las Coloradas and Ek Balam Trip

Explore the natural treasures of Mexico's Yucatan with this fantastic trip to Las Coloradas and Ek Balam. You will also enjoy a wonderful boat ride on the beautiful Lagartos River.

Las Coloradas and Ek Balam Trip

We will pick you up from your hotel in Valladolid between 7 and 7:30 am before heading to the picturesque municipality of Río Lagartos where we enjoy a fab two-hour boat ride on the idyllic Lagartos River.

First, we will explore this protected environmental reserve on the boat, observing the magnificent flamingos, herons, and pelicans that inhabit it. In the end, you can take a traditional Mayan mud bath - a real treat for the skin! After that, we will enjoy a typical lunch of a choice of several regional dishes.

At 12:30 pm, feeling reenergized, we will continue the tour by heading to Las Coloradas where you can take a selfie with this spectacular pink lake in the background. Its curious tone is due to the high level of salt and the variety of algae and microorganisms, found in the water.

After admiring this colorful landscape, we will continue to the enchanting archaeological site Ek Balam. In this Mayan village, we will encounter walls, pyramids, arches, and a pre-Columbian ball game. After the visit, you will have free time to continue exploring the vestiges of this great civilization at your own pace.

Finally, we will return to Valladolid, arriving back at your hotel at around 5:30 pm.
