Yucatan Workshop

Come join Frederick Van Johnson and Federico Chieli for an unforgettable adventure in Yucatan Mexico. Our adventure takes us to see ancient pyramids, pink flamingos, crystal clear cenotes, charming historic town centers with incredible food and authentic local culture. Yucatán blends ancient Maya and Aztec culture with the stunning architecture of the Spanish colonial period. Izamal is known as the city of three cultures: pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern. The city is a visual feast: nearly every structure is painted egg yolk yellow, providing a thoroughly unique aesthetic.
