Maya Q’eqch’i Experience
Characteristics
Seeing the problems that arose in the region with the creation of protected areas, population growth, the use of natural resources and economic development, Ak ‘Tenamit created the Youth Education Center focused on sustainable development, in order to guide and raise the awareness of the local population to respect the environment and in that way, follow the steps of their ancestors in an applied Maya worldview.

Gastronomic and Cultural Tour
