EXPERIENCE

Spend the day in Tekit, a traditional Yucatecan village whose daily life revolves around its beautiful church, the market, and some small stores. Join this private tour to become part of the town’s daily life by cooking an authentic Yucatecan dish in a local home with a local guide and local people.

After pickup at your hotel in Mérida in the morning, travel for approximately 1 hour to Tekit. Upon arrival, head to the mill where corn dough is used to prepare tortillas. Afterward, visit the local market in search of groceries, spices, meat, and vegetables. Once you have all the ingredients you need, you’ll go to a local home to start preparing the dish.

Once the food is cooking on the fire, visit a Mayan household where you’ll be able to interact with the melipona bees and taste their honey. Then, it will be time to savor your meal with handmade tortillas and natural beverages, a real feast.

After lunch, stroll through some of Tekit’s traditional guayabera (Mexican shirt) and blouse stores. The making of these garments is the main economic activity in the town. Enjoy the opportunity to purchase these garments directly from the producers, and take home a beautiful handmade souvenir of your trip to Yucatan before returning to Mérida.
