It is also known for its gastronomic traditions inherited from their ancient Mayan ancestors, and for cooking 'zats', a tree worm that grows in 'caulote' trees typical of the region (known there as 'tapaculo'), as well as the 'yervamora', a seasonal vegetable, a chili variety 'simojovel' native to the town region, and the 'suy' prepared food.
Native inhabitants of Simojovel do not allow tourists or foreign visitors interviews, as a measure to protect their patrimony and non-ethical profit.
