Ek Balam Rio Lagartos and Tequila Private Tour from Cancun

This 13-hour day trip takes you from your hotel in Cancun inland to the recently excavated ruins of Ek Balam, a Mayan city full of carvings, tombs, wall paintings, and mysteries. Visit a tequila factory for a tasting, enjoy lunch, then head to Rio Lagartos, the Yucatan's famous pink lake—a mineral-rich lagoon where you can take a healing mud bath before cleansing off in the Gulf of Mexico. This private tour by air-conditioned minivan includes entrance fees, bottled water, hotel pickup and drop-off, and a private historian guide.
