This village is located about 12 kms from Coba on the road between Coba and Punta Laguna. At the lefthand side of the road a sign gives the name: Zoologika y Aldea Maya. The villagers guide visitors around through their houses and have several animals to be shown as well: monkeys, deer, wild boars and others. They also perform a Mayan ceremony on request. All of this is free: they volunteer. A small gift shop sells locally produced souvenirs; we bought some to make sure that they keep doing this activity keeps going.
Because the visit is so authentic it feels great. To communicate Spanish is a must (or Mayan!), otherwise it will be hard to get enough out of the visit (even though just walking around is great in itself). We found it the best thing we have done in Mexico so far. For hardly any costs!
