Xcalacoco Experience

Monday – Earth

The ancient Mayans who once inhabited these lands used the earth, the trees and the animals in their day-to-day life. See first-hand how this fascinating culture took advantage of their natural surroundings as you learn about underground cooking techniques, the healing abilities of local trees and herbs, Mayan roads, and even the famous Mayan ball game that connected man and the ground beneath him in a fight for glory. On this day, we celebrate the powers of healing and sustenance provided by the earth itself.

You’ll discover a wide variety of activities to enjoy throughout the day at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. Check the day’s itinerary to fully experience eco tourism and the fascinating Mayan culture.
