If you are interested in how the Maya live in the traditional way there is a lovely family in the village that open their doors for you to enter and visit with them.
Hernando will receive you at his front gate. He will escort you into a typical Maya house where he will explain the reason that they built the houses in an oval shape.It seems each corner , each piece of wood, that they used to build ,as a significance .The rounded part being taken from the half moon . The four strong thick posts that hold the roof ,representing the four corners of the world . He will show you how best to sleep in a hammock for adults and children .
He will take you to see his wife making handmade tortillas over an open fire.
Then a trip into the garden where he will demonstrate how to make rope from the Henniquin plant .
Then onto his small altar where he explains the work that the Maya gods do.
All in all it is a great experience and you can enjoy it too.! If you would be interested just get in touch with me and you can either walk down by yourself or if you need someone to translate either I or Hilario would be more than happy to share the experience with you . It would be our pleasure.
