Guide très calme et compréhensible avec beaucoup d’humour. Nous avons visités certain endroits principaux du centre ville avec entre chaque place des anecdotes sur les plantes, pierres, nourritures et habitudes des maya d’antan et d’aujourd’hui. Un réel plaisir de découvrir et de partager sur les culture maya!
