El Veinte
5/5
Una experiencia hogareña

El Veinte ha sido una experiencia inolvidable, te muestra realmente lo hermoso de México. Debería de darse más a conocer y gracias a Rutopía es posible, ver cómo conviven las personas de la comunidad y cómo adoptan a los turistas.  Es una experiencia hogareña ya que duermes en sus casas, bajo su techo y bajo sus costumbres, te alimentan con su sabor, y todo esto te saca de tu zona de confort.

Un recorrido increíble

El Veinte es un lugar muy lindo, con gente increíble! Disfruté mucho de los talleres. Recuerdo muy bien el taller de tallado de piedra, con una familia que nos recibió en su casa durante horas, nos enseñaron su técnica y sus artesanías y nos contaron muchas historias. También, uno de sus hijos, de aproximadamente 12 años, nos enseñó cómo se usa el telar de cintura para hacer hamacas. En esa comunidad tienen artesanías increíbles de maderas preciosas. Su tienda es la mejor opción para comprar recuerdos para la familia y amigos. Todas son personas muy apasionadas e increíbles y es una comunidad muy unida. Uno de los días hicimos un recorrido a unas ruinas con guías locales. El recorrido fue a través de la selva, con paisajes increíbles. De regreso subimos a una torre a partir de la cual tenías una vida panorámica de toda la selva.

Lovely trip

Staying with Ofelia’s at El Veinte was a life changing experience. First it is a beautiful and special location in middle of Mexico’s south-eastern rainforest. Second- Ofelia and Rosa, and Ofelia’s children made me feel like I was at home and part of the family. It’s a unique experience to be invited into someone’s home and be treated not like a client, but like family. I learned so much from these women about plants and the forest, and we saw some gorgeous landscapes on our hikes to waterfalls. I loved the birdwatching trek experiences, and the natural gum workshop. I never slept better than in the hammocks where they sleep every day! I loved hearing natural sounds while falling asleep. Its a place that I’ll never forget and that I highly recommend. Thank you Rogelio, Ofelia and Rosa for the experience!
