Oxkutzcab is a small town, with a population of about 21,000. It is an agricultural community where sugar, tobacco, maize, fruit, and Henequen is grown. Henequen (Agave fourcroydes) is an agave. The leaves are very fibrous and are used to make rope and twine.

Oxkutzcab, which has a number of interesting tourist attractions, is known for its "Festival of Oranges" (Feria de la Naranja). This isn't too surprising since the municipality of Oxkutzcab is known as the 'Orchard of the State of Yucatan.' I won't be surprised if the honey from the area has a citrus quality.

The town is also known for its tricicleros, a kind of a bicycle with two wheels in the front separated by a support, where you can transport passengers or haul loads.
