We leave from Playa del Carmen in van nearly 7.10 am to arrive in the middle of the Rio Lagartos natural Park
It is a fishing village located in the coastal area of the Yucatan Peninsula . It is a very large protected biosphere with flora and fauna,
The river connects to the gulf of mexico
Coming back we stop for the Ek Balam Ruins.
In mayan means: the Black Jaguar.
Do not look for Ek Balam in guides or maps: it’s a hidden jewel in the yucatecan savannah, many of its mysteries are yet to be uncovered but each discovery inspires leads it to be considered as one of the most important archaelogical zones of Yucatan.
The acropolis is 120 feet high and 660 feet large, so save some picture and some film for the ruins!
Last stop at Hunuku, a little Mayan community that gives you the opportunity to share the true native life.
We shall be back to Playa del Carmen at 7.30 pm nearly.
It is a long but first class day!
