We call this thing “AUTHENTIC”  and it means you will have a real experience in real Mexico. Like picking papayas along the chattering Urique River.

Is this photo sideways?

I don’t think so…Robert (a guest from PA) was balancing there to grab the ripe ones. Getting papayas involves turning them for a bit until they drop off and then throwing down to us below. The ripe ones have just a bit of yellow on them.

We end up with a fine box of good ones which we enjoy upon our return to Cerocahui. Yum!

This is authentic.
