Mexico (6) – Valladolid, Cenote Maya Park – The Gardens
Located outside of Valladolid, this Park promotes Ecotourism. The purpose of ecotourism is to allow tourism to develop in a way that is fair and equitable for host communities. All the workers at this park, from maintenance to the photographers are local people being educated by the tour company. It was refreshing to see this garden in a beautiful natural environment with the use of recycle materials like plastic bottles and tires as planter boxes.
The authentic blessing by a Mayan Shaman was a special treat.

Mint to go with refreshing drinks
The use of recycled tires as planters
Hibiscus flowers are mainly used for their drinks, hot or cold
Unfortunately, I did not catch the name of this plant
The use of rocks to make a decorative flower pattern
Recycled bottles to start off seedlings
Oh so natural
Planters add colours to the green environment
An authentic blessing
