Living Maya Experience
Take a trip back in time and visit a local Maya family home which showcases how people lived before modernity took over. Listen to ancient stories, learn how to cook tortillas, grind cocoa beans and try your hand at weaving colourful fabrics.
This experience is truly for those wanting to get under the skin of Mayan culture. Discover how those before us once lived and how a traditional family home was run many years ago.
You will be picked up by your guide in the morning and be transported back in time as you head to a local village to meet with a Kek'chi Maya family. They will tell tales of their ancestors and wider history before showing you how they would traditionally prepare a meal. Roll your sleeves up and learn how to make tortillas, grind cocoa beans for the Mayan cocoa drink and try weaving for the first time. You will then be taken outside for a guided tour of the herb garden, many of which were used for medicinal purposes as well as cooking. Then, sit down for a traditional Maya meal and converse with the local family to hear all about the culture they work hard to preserve.
