A thrilling recreation of the Mayan ball game, Pok ta Pok. Don't miss it.
Variations of the ball game have been played for thousands of years. In fact it is the oldest game to utilize a rubber ball. It weighs about 5kg and players use their hips to bounce the ball through a vertical hoop. It is amazing to see the players make this athletic feat look relatively easy.

At the Plaza Grande; in front of Catedral de San Ildefonso.
