Camino Real Tour: A journey through the traditional Mayan towns of northern Campeche. Ancient lined-stones road where the Mayan language still remains and sounds very loud. Centuries-old traditions that survive on the hands and creativity of the Mayan soul: men and women of maize show us their ancient heritage and its undeniable and irreplaceable presence in the multicolored and multicultural landscape of Campeche.
We will visit the Mayan towns of Hecelchakán, Calkiní, Bécal and Pomuch. In Hecelchakán we will witness the daily life of a Mayan village, if you want you will taste the traditional cochinita pibil and finally, we will see a seventeenth century church. Calkini is a very interesting place with a beautiful sixteenth-century Franciscan church where we will learn about the mixture of pre-Columbian and Christian beliefs that define modern Mayan religion. In Becal we will visit a family of artisans with several generations in the making of the famous Panama hats. Pomuch is the last town to visit, there we'll go to a traditional bakery to taste their famous bread and finally see a very special cemetery like no other in Mexico.
