Mayan dinner menus are based entirely on regional specialties such as black bean stew with sour cactus fruit salsa, and banana leaf cooked lionfish with mint and tomatillo. Traditional Mayan methods of cooking over an open fire in clay pans will create the exotic Mayan flavorings and 100% of the ingredients will be sourced locally from organic farmers and from the hotel’s own milpa-style farm. A portion of the Aldea Maya proceeds will benefit the local Mayan communities.
