Following a break for a theatrical performance complete with Mayan smoke and drums, there are more work-shops to enjoy, including seeing how honey is made by stingless Mayan bees, how clothes are made from agave plants and how natural chewing gum is made from ancient trees.

To round things off you'll be shown how an age-old ball game is played, enjoyed by Mayan thousands of years before NFL or baseball were invented.

The complete visit lasts about 60 minutes, and you'd never imagine you could pack so much in about the captivating lives of the Mayan people.

You can stay longer if you wish, and don't miss the little thatched gift store at the end, where you'll find the unique keepsakes and presents you've been searching for all vacation.

This visit is not offered by cruise lines or package vacation agencies and is not a superficial Mayan theme-park. Instead, you can expect a fun, authentic, hands-on Mayan experience. It's designed by experts in pre-Hispanic Mexico who have a desire to share their knowledge with you.

You can easily take a taxi or drive a rental car to get there, or it makes a great stop on our Private Taxi Tours and Wheelchair Accessible Tours.

Don't miss out. Come and learn. Come and be Mayan!
