In the same category,  Spend the night on a hacienda to benefit the community. The haciendas as extraordinary heritage derived from a very emblematic time for the Peninsula, the effort that has implied restoring and conditioning them as luxury hotels – which present luxury to us in a very different way, as something authentic, which directly impacts the communities and that when we stay and consume products associated with these haciendas in some way we vindicate what they were at one time and giving them a new light for the rescue of herbalism, popular art and the dignity of the work that young people do in serving the most high-quality standards that seek other types of alternatives and the Hacienda Santa Rosa de Lima and the Puuc Route are an example of this.

The fourth experience, within the category “Priceless experiences,” highlights  Diving in a cenote with Archaeologist Guillermo de Anda, through the cenotes, which are the gateway to the Mayan worldview but also to the water reserves that overlook life to the wonderful ecosystems of the Peninsula, – try to draw attention to the importance of knowing how to appreciate them for what they are, as sacred sites that must be visited, because tourism facilitates conservation through economic spillover and also raise awareness of the treasures that they protect, there is a whole archaeological and paleontological world that we did not even imagine – concluded Alonso Vera, ‘Pata de Perro’.
