Fodor's Review

Learn about Kek'chi crafts, culture, and cuisine in a hands-on private experience in Maya 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 Center in Punta Gorda to help arrange the Living Maya trip. If you're traveling solo, any nonexpress James Line bus will drop you off and pick you up at Big Falls village (watch for Las Faldes restaurant on the Southern Highway) near the Living Maya Experience homes where hosts Anita Cal and Marta Chiac live. Costs vary depending on which learning experiences you choose and the length of them, but most are under BZ$40 (not including transportation and additional tour company fees).
