The Maya Region and the Route of the Churches

Felipe Carillo Puerto: Due to its central location between the Mayan Riviera and the Grand Costa Maya, it is a strategic point of departure to tour the municipality and the state. It includes more than 90% of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, with two of its four access points and it also houses three of the four existing Mayan ceremonial centers, thereby conserving its millenial traditions, offering history, culture and all the services that a visitor requires for an unforgettable stay.

José María Morelos: The territory occupied by the town of José María Morelos was inhabited before the arrival of Spaniards by indigenous Maya settled in the Cochua chiefdom. Its current population dates back to a camp, where the first people who settled there came from other states of Mexico with the purpose of exploiting chewing gum and wood.

Route of the Churches: This route is made up of the localities of Tepich, Tihosuco, Xcabil and Saban, and includes much of the history of the Caste War and the present-day Maya culture.
