Hopelchén

Every good walk should start from the heart of the place you are visiting. In the case of Hopelchén, you can start your activities by taking a walk around La Plaza Principal (The Main Square), which is as typical as most Mexican towns.

It has a kiosk in the center and around it there are benches to sit and breathe fresh air or take cover in the shade of a leafy sun tree that shelters the area practically all year round.

In front of this postcard scenery is El Templo y Convento de San Andrés de Padua (San Andres de Padua Temple and Convent), built-in 1677 by the Franciscans who settled in the region to evangelize its inhabitants, which was not easy since they were firmly opposed to it.

It is worth crossing its doors to admire its Solomonic Baroque style altarpiece full of delicately worked details, this is one of the oldest in the Yucatan Peninsula.

In one of the breaks of your tour, refresh yourself with a traditional “pozol” or enjoy a “cochinita pibil”, some “panuchos” or some “codzitos”, Yucatan specialties that will make you not want to return home.
