|we drove down a small beach side resort are called Bunta Bett. Most of the resorts were clased and the one open weren" too hospitable.|
|The beach at Punta Bett|
|This is one of the Punta Bett resorts -- Los Pentos|
|The next day we went out the new road to Merida hoping to get off
before too long and go to a old ruin that has never been uncovered. But,
there was no exit and we had to go all the way to Valldadolia to get off.
We then drove north to a ruin called Ek balam. On the way we passed
through a small old town called Temozon . More about that later.
|We finally reached the Ekbalam Ruin at the Archological Zone, and proceeded to enter. We noticed that ours was the only car in the lot.|
|Naturally the first thing you have to do is get tickets. The state run site charges $3.00 US a person.|
|Ekbalam is a nice little ruin still in the process of being revived by the gov. Not too many tourist know about it , and most of the tours hav'nt found it yet. The guy selling tickets is the live-in caretaker, and does his job well.|
|Most of the buildings are described by stone markers. Some of those are seen here. Some of the old building hav'nt been uncovered yet, as seen in the last picture.|
|The largets building seen here has a long set of steps leading to the top.|
|A couple views from the top|
