Many visitors think of the Mayans as an ancient civilization that disappeared long ago, but the fact is that while many other indigenous groups have vanished or been absorbed into the general population, the Mayan culture, customs, language and beliefs remain strong on the Yucatán Peninsula even today. You will experience the Mayan reality of today on this cultural adventure that will both educate and delight you.
Begin your adventure in a small, contemporary Mayan community built up around the remains of an ancient Mayan settlement and stop at one of the fascinating ruins located right in the middle of town.
Follow your guide into a traditional Mayan house where you’ll learn about the local food and see authentic Mayan cooking techniques before feasting on this delicious cuisine.
If you have visited any Mayan ruins or are remotely interested in the first people that populated the Americas, then you will be surprised, fascinated and left with a newfound respect for this long-lived culture that both collides with and blends into the modern world.
