Go off the beaten path on a tour to visit the idyllic Yucatecan countryside. Venture to the small town of Leona Vicario to experience the daily life, traditions, and tastes of Mexico, and wrap up your tour in either the charming fishing village of Puerto Morelos or the Crococun wildlife sanctuary.
After your hotel pickup, head west to the town of Leona Vicario, located near Cancun and known among locals for its small nursery gardens. Visit the church on the main square to learn about Catholicism and the important part it plays in Mexican life, and then hop on a tricitaxi, or tricycle rickshaw, for a short ride around the town.
Pass by a local elementary school and feel the energy of children playing in the yard before you visit a small handicraft factory. See how artisans craft wooden logs into a flower vase or an ashtray in less than 10 minutes. At the local cemetery, you can hear fascinating facts about how Mexican culture and traditions relate to death and learn about the Day of the Dead.
Visit a tortillería, a bakery that specializes in tortillas, to see Mexico's everyday food before you make your way to a local home and meet a attentive local family. Help your hosts prepare traditional dishes and snacks, and then savor the results.
For the last part of the tour, either spend some free time in the cozy coastal town of Puerto Morelos or explore the wildlife sanctuary of Crococun, where you can save 50 percent off the regular price of entry. There, you can hold a baby crocodile, walk among the adults, and see some snakes, turtles, and deer.
