About Coox Mayab

icon experience


Co’ox Mayab is a project that provides training to young people in Merida, in the Yucatan region of Merida. More local guides in this popular tourist area gives the youth who live here employment opportunities and reduces the number of foreign guides profiting from travel to Yucatan. The cooperative supports responsible tourism practices and shares the benefits with the entire community.

Tourists can visit the area and make contributions directly to the people who live there, as well as have an authentic exchange with the young people of Merida.

Over all, our compromise has the intention to promote tourism as a powerful tool to promote development and the consequent reduction of poverty, as one of the possible keys for the economic, social, environmental, patrimonial and cultural development of the rural and indigenous communities. Since then, we have received great news about the new guides and their efforts are now palpable as some or them are working as tourism guides in their communities.
