Talking with the locals is a treasure, the road is about that, getting closer


As we have said on more than one occasion, the ancient Maya built their cities near cenotes, just like the old Yaxunah, which served them to supply fresh water comfortably.

The Mayans have a special relationship with the cenotes, these are part of the creation and perception of the Mayan world. The cenotes are part of the Mayan underworld, one of its three great levels: underground, earthly, and heavenly. This underground world is called metnal in Yucatec, olontic in tzotzil or xibalbá in Quiché, this being the most used word when referring to this concept.

In this land we learned to ask permission, a precise and precious act that places you in the space you are about to enter. We give thanks for having learned to ask permission 😊
