Mayan Community Tour and Traditional Herbal Medicine

Mayan Community Tour: Herbal Medicine in the Jungles of Yucatan

This Mayan community tour from Cancun is an immersion into the life of the modern day Maya who still live with many of their ancient traditions. The Maya people who currently inhabit the Yucatan peninsula are the heirs of what is considered the most dazzling civilization in pre-Columbian America since 1000 BC and on this tour we will immerse ourselves in the heart of the jungle to get to know a community located in the town by Lázaro Cárdenas.

This is an intimate look at real life, you will learn about the Maya culture, traditions and customs of the past and present. Our hosts will share with us their ancestral wisdom of medicinal herbalism and the magic and science behind the plants of the Yucatan jungle. You will learn how to prepare a local dish called ¨Pollo Pibil¨ and savor your delicious efforts for lunch. Your Mayan community tour from Cancun concludes with a refreshing swim in a sacred cenote with crystal-clear, mineral-rich healing waters.
