“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2010

While staying in the Jaguar Preserve, we came down to the Maya Museum one evening for a full tour, a concert and dinner. What a great experience! Julio explained many aspects of traditional Mayan culture to us and showed us various implements and artifacts. We learned how to make corn tortillas and pressed sugar cane. We enjoyed a concert with traditional Mayan music and Mayan dance and then participated in the dance. All this was followed by a delicious dinner (and they were able to accommodate the vegetarians in our group). All in all a fantastic experience!

“julio is a great guy with the best prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2010

We stayed in maya Centre for a few days to visit the reservas nearby...the local transport system is pretty poor so we had to rely on taxis to get to and from each one. There were several offers around town...but julio beat them all. In addition, he was punctual, and full of interesting stories the whole way. He also acts as tour guide and runs a museum in the village. Great place by the way!
