This project will focus efforts to make available to national and foreign visitors the culture of the traditional Mayan communities, which will be done through contact with nature, the culture of the populations and various unusual adventures that can be achieved in these places.

On the subject, the president of the Board of “Co’ox Mayab”, Mario Tuz May, reported that this initiative brings together 10 companies committed to the construction of sustainable tourism in Yucatan, which promotes the enhancement of value and the practice of responsible, supportive, fair and conscientious tourism.

Likewise, he said that the initiative includes three main objective: first, the promotion of the actions that currently exist dedicated to alternative community tourism, the promotion of good tourism practices by tourists and host localities.

The second is the commercialization of tourism experiences that facilitate international, national and regional access for the social enterprises that are joining in the initiative through strategic alliances with companies dedicated to offering experiences conceived under a sustainability and values-based approach.
