Things to do

Try Traditional Food

In the Mercado Municipal (town market), try the chaya gourd with eggs and wash it down with a coconut pozol (drink made with corn). In Los Mestizos restaurant, sample the tamales steamed in banana leaves, panuchos (a tortilla filled with black beans and piled with toppings), or a lima soup prepared with a variety of lime. In Kinich, enjoy the beans and pork, chilmole or black relleno (turkey stewed in chili peppers), spicy roasted cochinita pibil (pork), and the specialty: poc chuc (meat, usually pork, flavored with citrus). In Zamna, savor rabbit in pumpkin-seed sauce, paired with xtabentún (a liquor with anise and honey). Dessert could be papaya candy with bola cheese or some marzipan.
