About us

Co’ox Mayab, meaning “let´s go to the Mayab” in Mayan language, is a union of social enterprises committed to the promotion of a sustainable, responsible, solidary, fair and conscious tourism in Yucatan. Through the promotion, commercialization and training of initiatives dedicated to alternative community-based tourism in the Mayan region, we aim for:
• Responsible tourism that considers good tourist practices that reduce the negative impact it generates.
• A solidary encounter that opens the approach between social reality and coexistence, promoting an intercultural interchange.
• Fair trade where public and private institutions, as well as local organizations participate, to assure an even distribution of the benefits generated by tourism.
• A conscientious form of travel as an experience that contributes to personal growth through contact between visitors, locals and biocultural heritage.
