Staying in Lacanjá is an interesting experience, and the Lacandon people are friendly and quiet, but do not expect to find much evidence of their old way of life, the villagers here are now predominantly Catholic and in tune with the modern world, and only some use Lacandon traditional long white robe. Some have developed their traditional crafts to commercial effect, and you can find pottery, woodcarvings, seed necklaces, arrows, and drums that sell in the community.
