The incredible in the everyday life.
Tekit is a town known for the making of traditional Yucatecan garments such as the guayaberas, filipinas, hipiles and embroidered blouses. It is located south of Merida, near the archaeological site of Mayapan.
You can get into the local daily life of this town to learn about the Mayas of yesterday and today with the community tours offered by the local cooperative. Make sweet bread at the local bakery, visit a guavaberas factory, learn about the production of vegetables and honey in a traditional Mayan household and taste seasonal fruit in a citrus grove.
After the community tour, you can refresh in the local cenote, visit the main church or buy traditional Yucatecan garments in the many shops around the village.
