Folks in the Yucatan think of themselves as a people apart from the rest of Mexico. There are restaurants that serve Mexican food, and restaurants that serve Yucatecan food.

La Tradicion is all about the distinctive dishes of the Yucatan, the heritage of the Maya. We had a three course breakfast for the ages.

Ripe Mexican dragonfruit with melon got the taste buds going (helped along with some strong coffee!) We enjoyed conchas and other freshly baked pastries.

For the day’s power, our group had scrambled eggs with chaya, the Mayan miracle plant. Eggs, coffee, chaya and habanero are the essential ingredients for Yucatecan rocket fuel!
