A great little community.
The community of Ek Balam is located a couple of kilometers from the archaeological site of the same name. The locals preserve many ancient Mayan traditions such as the milpa (a mesoamerican crop growing system), machine embroidery, hammock weaving, and tortilla making, which they share with visitors through community and bicycle tours in the village.
The ecotourism center Unajil Ek Balam also offers accommodation in traditional cabins and a camping area, as well as restaurant service with delicious traditional dishes.
