Maya Agroforestry

     Discover real people in real places and what they are doing to stop slash and burn agriculture through productive and eco-logical practices. Many of our tours will take you to meet the Itza people, on Lake Peten Itza, in Peten, Guatemala. There you may learn:

about seeds and how to collect them...
about combining different plants in the same plot as a standard pest control practice, that is both natural and cost effective...
about the Maya forest and the wonders of its plants and secrets...

We don't support illegal logging, we support alternatives...

     From this rich learning experience you take home with you many other benefits are being derived:

empowering indigenous people to share their expertise and ancient knowledge...
empowering them to take control over their land and reclaiming a past that may help us all in our understanding of the natural world and the great possibilities for our future by working together with and not against nature...
allowing ecotourism to become a powerful ally for indigenous people’s economy and the conservation of their own protected areas and the national parks and sanctuaries around them...
