AND LOCAL COMMUNITY
RIO BEC SITES
During this tour we will visit 3 archaeological sites: Xpujil, Becán and Chicanná, and also some communities where you will learn about the local sustainable initiatives that are looking for economical alternatives to offer a responsible use of the natural resources.
Xpujil, Becán and Chicanná are a very good example of the Rio Bec architectural style. You will learn about the Rio Bec region and how it got to influence over Calakmul during the late classic period. Because these sites are surrounded by jungle, there is a high chance to see wildlife while we walk around the ruins.
We will also visit 20 de Noviembre, a local community where people are specialized in handcarfting. Very nice wood work, weaving and knitting.
