  • Oxkintok is one of the most outstanding from the Mayan culture. One of the main attractions is undoubtedly the labyrinth, a place in where ancient rites were performed.
  • Becal is considered the capital of the Mayan hat. Artisans in this community make Jipi Japa hats (Panama style hats) inside some caves, because this process allows agile handling of the fiber
