ATV trip to a ghost town? Sign me up!
A truly unique experience awaits as you explore this ghost town, abandoned by people, but not necessarily by ghosts!???
The adventure begins as we saddle up our ATV's and, for about an hour, ride trails leading to this abandoned town. For 100 years, the town of Misnebalam was a thriving community with it's economy based on the Henequen plant, used to produce textiles.
The story goes that a number of mysteries, ghosts, gremlin-like spirits and witches led to the eventual departure of Mesbebalam's last residents in 2010. There are many accounts of unusual activities having taken place in this town and your guide will fill you in on all the details.
As you wander the deserted town, it's interesting to imagine life there during flourishing times. Perhaps even more interesting is how quickly nature takes over when humans have left. Vines entangle benches in the park. Paint begins to peel. Buildings are eerily empty. Fascinating photo opportunities appear around every corner.
But this tour is more than visiting a ghost town. From here we head to a lovely lagoon for a bit of relaxation and a refreshing dip.
At last we arrive at a beautiful beach club with great amenities and gorgeous views. Pull up a beach chair, go for a swim in the pool or take a kayak for a spin. Whether you prefer relaxation or activity, we've got it all.
