“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.” Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq'ij of the Eagle Clan
Ojos Mayas is a COMMUNITY TOURISM PROJECT that harmoniously unites Mayan communities with travelers around the world and provide visitors an opportunity to strengthen, share and learn about the Mayan culture, their communities, ideologies, traditions and economic centers in contemporary Mexico. We plan TRIPS to take an in-depth look at a Mayan society that successfully continues to shape the culture and economies of the Riviera Maya. Ojos Mayas is the first community tourism GUIDE focused on promoting ecotourism and supporting and sustaining the social and economic development of Mayan communities. A deeply rooted belief in the environment and ongoing sustainability of the communities is what fuels the passion for this project.
