Tekax: Here the Adventure Begins

This month we take you on an in-depth tour to a very special region of our state: Tekax, about an hour and a half south of Mérida. We have no less than eight articles that bring this region to life! Violeta H. Cantarell put together the introduction to the region, a directory of services, and wrote a reflective look at how the Maya manage water, through the eyes of two Tekax tour guides, Julio Estañol and Julio Sosa. Ralf Hollmann inspires us with his fearless cave explorations, a visit to the unique and uncrowded archaeological site of Chacmultún, and a sensitive report on the possibilities for rural tourism in nearby San Marcelino. Cassie Pearse once again teaches us how to bring a destination to life for young children, and she also tells us about a local legend that attributes special powers to the saint San Diego. I'm quite certain that after reading this edition, you'll want to follow in their footsteps and see it all for yourself.
