There are thousands of things to visit, do and admire while you visit the Riviera Maya. Sandos is introducing this tour in Cancun, Mexico because it has some of the most emblematic cultures of all time.
What have you heard about the Mayans? Did they really dissappear and got extinct, or maybe they moved to another planet? There are hundreds of theories but none of them have been proven.
Guess what? Mayan communities still exist.
Ok, so you are about to arrive to Sandos Caracol or Sandos Playacar and you are planning the perfect getaway. Want some adventure while learning all about Mexico.
Let us introduce The Last Witness Tour.
Hidden Archaeological Sites
These aren't even on the mapIt´s 7am andSeek and Go is waiting for you to start on a journey. Just after Tulum town, they stop to show you a hidden treasure called “Muyil”.
This jungle surrounding pyramids are calm, green and beautiful. Travellers have time to ask questions, listen to the animals and watch monkeys!
Introducing SEÑORAfter leaving the pyramids behind and changing the scenary for a flower set up, you will arrive to “Señor”. This is a Mayan community with about 150 people.
Marcos, Sandos’ local host, will receive you with fresh fruit, organic coffee, and juices.

Organic SowingListen carefully when the guides will explain organic sowing. You will meet one of the oldest persons in town (more than 90 years old) and he will bless your visit with a symbolic ceremony.
Right after, they will show you how they plan their meals, and lets just say, you will learn why all the food in Riviera Maya tastes so good.
Stories of a WisemanGet to meet the oldest man in town! He is one of the last witnesses of the Caste War in Yucatan, and has amazing stories to tell. Some are tragic experiences that he lived while this war occurred almost 100 years ago.
