After that fun, depending on timing, you may stop at a Mayan family’s home, where they will explain how they cook in their outdoor kitchen, tell you some really interesting stories about their family set up, and show you how they make those Mayan baskets you see everywhere!
Finally, you stop at Nim Li Punit Mayan ruins, where Mark gives some great history about burials, culture, and the village structure.
Everyone on the tour loved it, and it has been unanimously highly recommended!
Another highly recommended activity is to hike at Bocawina National Park, There are several hikes to choose from, as you can see on this map:
Look for signs to the view–you climb over to a ledge where you are treated to this amazing view all the way to the sea….this picture doesn’t capture its awesomeness at all!
My mom came for a visit, and we had such a great time. She is terrible with knives so I thought it would be fun to teach her to machete a coconut. (she didn’t even break its skin.)
