Open Expeditions

Now YOU can join in real, working expeditions

Are you ready for an adventure?

The first thing we want you to know is that if you decide to come with us, you are joining a working expedition!

Our goal is to better understand and to document the culture and stories of the modern Maya people living here on the Yucatan Peninsulia. With that goal in mind, we always keep connecting with the local people as our top priority. It is important for you to understand that the events on the calendar here are a flexible guideline of what we will actually be doing. 

We often find ourselves being invited into people's homes, asked to join locals for a meal, or meeting someone new who offers to bring us places we never even knew existed! So be open and ready for the unexpected! THIS is where it really starts to get interesting!

The open expeditions you will find below are places we are visiting often right now because we are working on a bigger project that requires us to return to the same place on a regular basis. We have set up some amazing things for you to do and we will be doing some research along the cool is that!

Lagoon, Cave & Muyil Ruins

This is a day for exploring the connection between nature and supernatural. From soaking in a fresh water lagoon with its own cenote to walking through a breath-taking unspoiled cave, to wandering among the ruins of Chunyache and touching the temple of the goddess Ixchel, you will be stunned at the natural beauty and awed at the sacredness you find there. We will stop and feast on traditional Maya cuisine in the little pueblo of Muyil too!


Boating in  Sian Ka'an Biosphere 

The Sian Ka'an Biosphere includes 3.1 million acres of protected land. Come navigate its pristine lagoons and canals with us. We will be exploring by panga with a local guide. Make sure to bring your camera because you may see exotic birds, manatees, turtles, crocodiles, rays, and other wildlife along the way.  After a lovely local lunch we will stop an explore a cave with amazing formations...and no-one else there!


2 Day Shaman Journey

Francisco is the last herbatero/shaman in his village. Come spend some personal time with him and recieve a cleansing ceremony while you also get to meet his family and visit in his home. On this over-night trip into the jungles of Yucatan, you will also get to visit the sacred centoe Ik Kil with its lush tropical flora and constant waterfalls and stay in a hotel with an ancient healing pool!
