Pibil Village is located in Tixkokob, 15 minutes away to the east of Mérida, Yucatán, a picturesque place with lots of handcraft’s tradition that preserves their customs regarding language and regional gastronomy. It is a place where you will find Yucatecan food prepared the traditional way and cooked underground, the pib style, as it is said in the Maya language. The exquisite Yucatecan cuisine, like relleno negro, cochinita, queso relleno, frijol con puerco, is a special fusion between Mayan ancestors and conquerors.

As an honor to his heritage, Pibil Master Silvio Campos, heir of numerous secrets of village’s cuisine, jealously kept by generations, prepares food the traditional way; then, it is cooked underground for 15 hours, in a fire made from chukum and catzín woods, oak and jabín leaves.

This gastronomic experience is a trip of ancient flavors, product of the mixture of powerful customs of civilizations set in the Yucatán Peninsula, framed by an old-manor house built in the end of the 18th Century, still preserving its original paint in some of its walls, a building that has been a witness of the fusion that took at least 250 years between the years 1500’s and 1800’s.
