What will you see?

dschungelcamp 07

CHICLERO CAMP
Visit a jungle camp outside the Riviera Maya and listen to my explanations how the workers are living and working in the jungle. I will also explain a lot about the history of the jungle camps in Mexico, cenotes, animals, plants and the medical use of plants. The camp exists since almost 75 years and at the moment are 10 people living and working there over the week.

 

leona vicario 05LEONA VICARIO
Next you visit Leona Vicario, a Mexican town in the middle of the jungle, just 25 miles from Cancun and the Riviera Maya. You wouldn’t imagine that 12000 people are living in this town, because it’s spreading all over the jungle. It is a Mexican town, but 80% of the people living there, are Mayan or Mayan descendents. People are coming out of the jungle so the children can go to school and learn Spanish, because the Mayan language is so different from every other language, they couldn’t communicate in their one country if they don’t learn Spanish. You will see a real authentic Mexican town, since no other tourist group is going there and nothing is done ore build for tourists. After a small walk over the fruit and vegetable market, you will go on a 1 hour roundtrip in tricitaxis (tricycle taxis), at first you’ll have a stop at a property where I will explain how people are building their houses since the don’t have the money to build a house from blocks all at once. Your next stop will be at a cemetery, where your guide will explain hoe they deal with death, contrary to us. Then you visit a tornero de Madera (wood craftsman) who built a machine from car spare parts and produces really beautiful mortars, vases, cups and other stuff from wood. If you want, you can buy some of the products for 4,- US – 8,- US instead of 18,- US – 40,- US in the shops in Cancun. Your last stop in Leona Vicario will be at a Tortilleria where I will explain and show you how they make the Tortillas, including a tasting.
