First of all, where are these workshops located?

The entire Mayan Village is signposted with the white line painted on the park floor. It very simple to get there, from the Main Square (the first place you see when passing the ticket offices), turn right and follow the path. There are two routes, one with underground caves and one through the ball court, no matter which one you choose, both take you to the same place. If you come from the beach, take the black route until you reach the Jaguars, from where the Maya Village also begins.

Once inside, use this map that we created for you. Everything will be set like an authentic Mayan Village, you will see many palapa roofs, hammocks, and people in Yucatecan attire, a lovely place!
