Full description
Arrive in Solferino and meet your guide, who will then take you to the peaceful House of Aluxes. There you will learn about the Mayan worldview. Take part in a Mayan ceremony and learn how to leave a traditional offering. After a quick safety tutorial, hop on your ATV and ride out to the Panoramic Tower. Climb the tower and take in spectacular views of the jungle from its 2 observation towers high above the trees.

Stop in the Historical and Natural Gallery and discover the history of Mayan culture in Solferino. Learn about Mayan textiles, and the flora and fauna native to this region. Visit the “Chewing Gum Camp,” and learn about the historical and cultural significance of how the Mayans chewed gum.

Ride on your ATV to the Mayan House where you’ll make handmade tortillas and beans. Continue to the Natural Museum of Flora and Fauna, where you can see a vast collection of insects, tropical woods, and seeds. Ride to the Dakini Lagoon. Board a canoe and row up to the imposing Oasis of Waterlilies. Use your binoculars to spot animals rustling in the jungle as you float gently in your boat. 

Enter the Meliponario and learn about the Mayan stingless bees, which are farmed to produce medicinal honey.  Return to the main palapa and enjoy a delicious meal. Afterward, take a dip in the pool. As your tour comes to a close, you’ll visit the beautiful elevated gardens which were grown using Mayan horticultural techniques.
