Learn how several characteristic Mexican products are made and enjoy tastings that showcase their unique flavors. At the Mayan Cacao Company, you will learn how the ancient Mayas produced chocolate from cacao beans and drank it for ceremonial and medicinal purposes. Following a tasting of chocolate, you will join a tequila seminar and discover how this iconic premium spirit is produced from the blue agave plant. A sampling will solidify why tequila is so revered in Mexico. Yet another tasting awaits you at the Mayan Bee Sanctuary, whose honey bears a more floral fragrance and citrusy taste than other honeys. You will also learn how the ancient Mayas cultivated stingless Melipona bees, the same species used to produce the honey at the sanctuary.
