Fodor's Review

Learn about Kek'chi crafts, culture, and cuisine in an hands-on private experience in the homes of participating villages in Big Falls. You could be involved in anything from building a traditional thatch house to making corn tortillas. Call in advance for what's available, times, and charges, or ask at your hotel or the BTIA Visitor Information Centre in Punta Gorda to help arrange the Living Maya trip. Any non-express James Line bus will drop you off and pick you up at at Big Falls village (watch for Las Faldes restaurant on the Southern Highway) near the Living Maya Experience homes. Costs vary depending on which learning experiences you choose and the length of them, but most are under BZ$40.
