Get in

The road to San Andrés Xecul turns west off from the old main road between Salcajá and Cuatro Caminos, close to a petrol station, just under a kilometer west of Cuatro Caminos, at a right-angle bend in the road. You can flag down buses and microbuses there as they turn in, or walk the two miles (3.5km) to the village.
