About Us

Who we are

Yucatán, the land of the Maya.

From heaven, the green ocean of the Mayan jungle, with an infinite horizon, the vestiges of a great past and the present of a silent civilization emerge before our eyes.
Exploration and discovery,
the surprise and mystery,
guides and sages of time, the Mayans of yesterday and today.

With the inspiration of Stephens and Catherwood, great explorers from the XIX Century and with the love, respect and passion that we have for this land and for the Mayan culture, for its past and its present; we design experiences and encounters for observers, travelers and explorers searching for discovering, feeling, understanding, enjoying, relaxing, dreaming.
Encounters with the past, ways of seeing the present spaces to experience the rhythms of nature and cycles of the cosmos.
