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.
