This was a great experience! Our guide Alex understood the ceremonies and the different sites for certain ceremonies very well. We learned much more than we ever expected about the Mayan culture. We got a personal insight from a Mayan person who has practiced these very ceremonies. We were given the opportunity to have our own ceremony as well. This really made us feel as though we were a part of this beautiful culture.
