Get in
Ek Balam is easily reached from major highways in the state of Yucatan. It is close to Mérida, Valladolid, and Chichen Itzá. The usual blue and white tourist signs indicate the direction on the highway (these signs are few and far between, and as of July 2007, were accurate).
There are no buses that go to Ek Balam(as of Dec 2017 Oriente runs a special route from Valladolid on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; departs at 8:30, returns at 12:00, cost 80 MXN/return), you need to take a car, taxi, or collectivo taxi. Collectivos are vans or regular taxis that take multiple people to the same place, and are cheaper than taking a private taxi for just your group.
The Collectivos to Ek Balam pick up on Calle 37 between Calle 42 and 44. Collectivo cost is 50 pesos per person or 200 pesos for a taxi (Sept 2015). They don't run a van but just put several people into the same taxi. You might be able to bargain the price down if you're 2 or more.
