Tour Details

Before entering the heart of the Cozumel jungle, undergo a purification ceremony led by an ancient Mayan priest, or shaman, to gain the permission of the Mayan gods. This ceremony will set the tone for the rest of your tour, one of mystic nostalgia as you experience the rich history and culture of the Maya.

Once at the Mayan site of Kun Che, the oldest human settlement in Cedral Town, you'll witness a game of the ancient Mayan sport, Pok Ta Pok. This pre-Columbian sport is a ball game played by two teams with enormous stakes: members of the winning team were often sacrificed to the Mayan gods in accordance with the game's mythical origin.

Then make your way through the Mayan sanctuary, where you'll enter a hut where you'll see first-hand how handmade tortillas are prepared. Visit the hut of an ancient Mayan leader, the halach uinic, and a third hut dedicated to the cuisine of the Maya.

At the third hut, you'll be able to partake in two culinary activities. First, learn about the history of Mayan chocolate, and then make and enjoy several Mayan tamales. Your tour will resume in the main palapa for a classic Mexican fiesta and a regional Yucatan folk dance performance. In the palapa, you'll also be able to indulge yourself with traditional, authentic dishes.
