COZUMEL MAINLAND ECOTOUR

UCHBEN BEEL

This unique adventure tour follows the route of the Caste War of the Yucatan, fought between the Mayas and the Spanish colonials in the late 1800s.  We'll visit 17th century churches, and small villages that were instrumental in the fighting of this 54-year war.  All the while your expert guide will fill you with the history of the area, and of the struggle itself.  Then we'll take an ecological journey through cenotes, kayak on lagoons, and eat authentic Mayan cuisine!
