Mexico Discoveries: The Living Mayan Culture

Away from the tourist sites of the Yucatan coast, Patrick Abboud goes deeper than the ancient Mayan ruins to find out the culture still thrives in Mexican life.


Pat meets a local man who has an ancient ruin on his property protected by mythical creatures, and the Mayan family running a nearby ecolodge. At a local cenote, Pat swims in the clear blue waters of a pool once used by Mayans for human sacrifice, and chats with the men and women keeping ancient Mayan crafts alive through intricate embroidery. He discovers that Mayans believe strongly in a connection between generations.
