We will kayak the mythical Río Hondo, the border between Mexico and Belize, the scene of historical episodes of contraband pirates, and enjoy its fauna and flora (birds, manatees, mangroves). We will visit the archaeological sites of Calakmul and Kohunlich, icons of the Preclassic and Classic periods of the Mayan civilation in Mexico. We will visit some local community where they will show us the crafts that they do. All this from certified guides, in small groups and with support material to provide travelers with an unforgettable visit.

Spending the day with Humberto Dzib Tun was the highlight of our vacation. Humberto led us on an ATV 15 thrilling kilometers into the jungle on a flooded trail to visit the fascinating Rio Bec ruins. Being alone at this wild and beautiful place was awe inspiring. Humberto shared his extensive knowledge of the site, jungle and his Mayan heritage. He even procured some "Mayan medicine" straight from the jungle for our ails. Upon returning, Humberto's family treated us to the most delicious home cooked lunch including tortillas fresh from the fire. After a siesta, Humberto took us to Volcan de los Murcielagos (Volcano of Bats) cave for another unforgettable experience. At dusk, millions (literally) of bats form a tornado exiting a dry cenote. Don't miss the chance to book an adventure with Humberto. He and his family are beautiful and kind (We found his WhatsApp number on his Facebook page. He is very responsive and accommodating.)

We took a guided tour by Humberto to the Rio Bec ruins. He drove us through the forest on a quad (15km). You would not be able to visit these sites by car. If you are in the area, Rio bec is really worth the visit. The ruins are deep in the forest en still in good shape. Humberto was very knowledgeable about the history and showed us all the best ways to climb the structures. We got a hold of him because the lady at the tourist information point in Xpujil called him for us.

Be prepared for a rough trip to get into the Rio Bec complex of Mayan Ruins. We went in with a guide driving a truck and several of the group on the back tire in bed of truck. We had a guide spotting on 4 wheeler go ahead of us clearing the road way. Takes about 1 1/2 hours to get into the site. Take lots of cold water to not get dehydrated. Wear your hiking boots and watch where you walk. Be careful if you decide to climb any of the structures. Best to wear long sleeves or wear sunscreen as there is very little shade. Great structures and examples of the mayan architecture.
