Stemming from the Mayan words for “star” and “jaguar," Ek balam, or “The Jaguar Star City,” was one home to the archenemies of Chichén Itzá. Enjoy an archaeological site tour, where you can view a ball court and two palaces built in the middle of the jungle and climb the palace of the Ukit Kan Lek Tok, a recently‐discovered tomb that has become the masterpiece of Mayan sculpture.
