Contact us or watch for dates on Facebook
The following schedule is our starting point. It will remain open to change because we are exploring and doing research along the way and we don't really know where we might end up!
Sian Ka'an Biosphere
Come with us as we explore the mangroves, canals, and lagoons of the Sian Ka'an with a local guide. The group will be small (as always) and we will have time to stop and take photos along the way. Make sure to bring your camera because the 3.1 million acres of protected land are home to exotic birds, manatees, turtles, rays, monkeys, crocodiles, and all sorts of other wild life! This is truely a "wild" experience and we will be in remote areas in a small panga where you will get the chance to really feel connected to nature.
Uku Cuzam Cave
Uku Cuzam--the cave of the swallows--is an extraodinary example of unspoiled stalactites and stalagmites, crystal clear water, and several cave "rooms" you can walk through. It is part of a much larger cave system and its dark and watery chambers, which have recently been mapped by cave divers, speak of sacred rituals and deep earth energies.
Descending into the earth here gives you a sense of entering an ancient and magical natural cathedral. Its a place that commands hushed whispers. Its a place where time seems to be suspended and the earth feels holy again.
Local Maya & Mexican Food
Enjoy typical Maya and Mexican dishes in a garden restaurant in the quaint village of Muyil.
Think spiced pork buried in the earth and smoked for hours, authentic tacos and tortas, Aztec soup, hibiscus tea, homemade lemonade, cold beer, panuchos and salbutes all served fresh and in a setting with lush tropical plants and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
