We’ll start the tour showing the local market where you can buy ‘tamales’ or fresh fruit to take with you on the trip.
After a stop at the convent it is time for a fresh dip in one of the most beautiful cenotes: Hacienda San Lorenzo Oxman. Ready for the rope swing?
Here you can swim in two of the more famous cenotes
in the Yucatan Peninsula: X’Kekén and Samulá.
The highlight of the trip is the integration with the local Mayan people of the village of Dzitnup or Xocén.
At about noon, we go back to basics. We’ll show you how Mayas used to live like they did hundreds years ago and still keep alive their original identity. They will show you how you can make your own tortillas.
On the way back we´ll visit the little village of Chichimilá, where the Mayan Caste War began in 1847.
