Living Maya Experience

One of the newer, but certainly culturally significant attractions in the area, this interactive experience gets guests involved every step of the way as they visit one or two homes that showcase life in a Kek'chi Maya village.


Guests are invited into the homes of local Kek'chi Maya families to help with their every day tasks as they live and work off the land. You'll first meet the families and tour the homes, taking note that everything is hand made and even the youngest of children help complete the days activities. Then jump right in and help with things like grinding soaked corn and work in the garden. You are rewarded not only with a profound appreciation for the lives they lead, but a delicious traditional lunch as well.
