The entrance to the market building features this hand painted mural depicting Yucatecan market life.
Another section features these ladies in the traditional dress of the Yucatan. The huipil.
For those of you keeping track, we stayed at the Hotel Puuc, an easy walk from the market and central square. We paid 330 pesos for the night ($27.50) and on a scale of 1-10, Steve and I gave it an 11! It's that good.
The church in Oxcutzcab is the standard mission style church that is found in almost every village of the Yucatan. The difference here is that it has been maintained beautifully.
I would have loved to go inside and to show that to you too. Unfortunately, this church, like most of the ones we encountered on this trip, was locked tight. We didn't understand how or why a church would lock out it's congregation. Weird, if you ask me.
The town square is a pleasant place to sit, eat an ice cream cone, maybe some french fries or a marquisita while watching village life transpire. Including loud teenagers intent on establishing their social pecking order.
If you are touring the Yucatan, make time for an overnight in Oxcutzcab. It is well worth the time.
