Medicinal Plants

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 learn about plants and their uses in the medical field with different groups and healers around the Maya World...

There you may learn:

  • about the plant's ecology and healing properties in the tropical rain forest...
  • about traditional communities whose ancestral methods of healing and home remedies are now finding a niche in a growing market in different countries...
  • about healing yourself with Mayan healers...
  • about getting better with self-help medicine derived from a deeper knowledge of what they can do for you and by rescuing plants...

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 about the connection between taking care of ourselves by taking care of nature...
  • empowering them to take control over their land and reclaiming a past that may help us improve our health and well being, as well as our future...
  • allowing ecotourism to become a powerful ally for indigenous people’s economy and the conservation of their own protected areas, national parks and of the sanctuaries around them...
  • finding new markets for their medicinal plants and derived natural products, improving the quality of life for our local partners in the areas we visit and placing more value on plants in general and the biotic communities where they live specifically, so that they may be protected as valuable resources for human health...

If you are specifically interested in learning more about medicinal plants or joining a tour to meet healers and people involved in the advancement of natural health systems please write us an e-mail to...
