The Maya: Truth and Lore in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula
Many people think of the Maya as existing mainly – perhaps even solely – in the historical record, far in the past from our modern day. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. So, how have they influenced the architecture, cuisine, and culture of the Yucatan Peninsula and many of the experiences you may have there today? On this episode, we’re joined by Carlos Rosado, a tour guide and editor at Yucatán Magazine, archaeologist Dante García, who leads expeditions to caves and cenotes, and chef Alejandra Kauachi, the founder of Mexico Lindo Cooking, a company that offers cooking classes, tours to Maya villages, and culinary trips. They will discuss the history of the Maya through modern day, and how to experience Mayan culture on your next trip to Mexico.
