You Cultural Experience begins in the afternoon when you arrive to Chicxulub Pueblo, where you will be greeted by your bilingual host with cool drinks in a traditional Mayan house. On your four-hour guided tour of Chicxulub Pueblo, a moto-taxi will take you to an abandoned train station, the central plaza, and eventually the local cemetery. Afterwards, you will enjoy a traditional pueblo meal. And after getting to know the pueblo, you may choose to stay a night or two at our two-room posada. Our Mayan Language Experiences are focused on language and culture, and the topic may change from week-to-week based upon the calendar of events in Chicxulub Pueblo. November offers the opportunity to participate in our celebration of Hanal Pixan, the Mayan version of Dias de los Muertos. At this time of year, we invite the "Pixanes" to enter our home with an offering of a traditional altar and an authentic ground pit-oven for "Mukbilkaax", or "chicken tamales" baked in the ground. Potential other events include traveling circuses; religious observations; community celebrations; traditional dance gatherings; modern music concerts; and other cultural situations that incite the use of 2nd language.
