Ek balam, coba

We are spending one night in Valladolid and were wondering if it would be too much in a day to do both ek balam and coba before returning to PDC. We will be driving.

I do understand that we will be backtracking a bit, as ek balam is north of Valladolid.

I also understand that there is a monkey preserve near coba?

It's very doable. Ek Balam is less than 30 minutes north of Valladolid and very much worth any kind of backtracking. Trust me, you are in for a treat. Go early so you don't arrive in Coba after all of the tours arrive. I can't tell you much about the monkey preserve. Go to youtube and type these destinations in and view many videos. There's probably one on the monkeys. Have A Blast!

Ek Balam is special. You can climb "pyramids" at both sites but Ek Balam has much more to see.

.An amazing journey for you. Enjoy.
