Mayan Discoveries

Visit one of the most beautiful archeological sites in Mexico, beautifully set in a lush jungle just one hour from Tulum. You might get sweaty when climbing Nohoch Mul (voluntary), the second tallest pyramid on the Yucatan Peninsula; that’s why we brin you to a beautiful hidden cenote afterwards to refresh and to explore the underworld of the Yucatan. After that, we visit the family of Sra. Catalina where she has prepared a special feast for us, a pib, an amazing chicken cooked under ground. Have you ever heard of the Meliponas? An endemic and sacred species of bees that don’t sting but produce amazing honey? If you like you can harvest some honey yourself. On the way back to Tulum, we make a short stop in Macario Gomez where you can shop local handicrafts like dreamcatchers. Enjoy the late afternoon back in your hotel with a cocktail or swim, or just relax on a lounger.
