Learn about the Mayan's sacred bee, the Melipona


In ancient times the Maya considered the honey from the Melipona bee sacred due to its healing properties. Twice a year, Xel-Há harvests this traditional honey in a ceremony performed by an astrologer and a Mayan priest.

Xel-Há considers beekeeping a very important activity, a Mayan tradition that we have the privilege of sharing with the world. This traditional honey harvest takes place during the full moons of June and December, when the hives are cleaned and the honey is collected. The beautiful ceremony is orchestrated by a Mayan priest, accompanied by musicians, traditional altars and floral decorations, and eventually culminates with a sacred feast.

We invite you to visit the place where they live at the Nursery in Xel-Há.
