Don’t just stick to highly touristic coastal areas. Riviera Maya has
so much to offer. That is why we are here. Our local hosts can

Pok-ta-pok: In ancient times, the Mayans created a sacred ball game similar to basketball called ‘Pok-ta-pok’. Games were played in a large stone amphitheater as a religious ritual and the object of the games were to knock a rubber ball through a stone ring, using only the hips, knees, and elbows.
This was a game where a player could definitely ‘lose his head’ over, because it was the winning team who was routinely sacrificed to the gods.
