By BBN Staff: The Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation and the Mundo Maya Organization held a familiarization trip to the Exploring Holpatin Trail in the Orange Walk district on Thursday, July 12.

As part of the activities, tour operators based in the Orange Walk district, regional tour operators, as well as representatives from the Mundo Maya organization and the Inter-American Development Bank learned about the history of the Maya Mestizo at the U Chan Muul Yaax K’aax Maya Museum in San Lazaro.

The participants also visited a medicinal trail in August Pine Ridge, where they were also able to experience local handicrafts from renowned local artisans, and later enjoyed a performance of the Pok Ta Pok (Mayan ball game) in Yo Creek village.

On Friday, a technical conference was held in Orange Walk town with the tour operators and the community organizations featured in the trail with the aim of creating new tourism packages for tourists visiting the Orange Walk district.

Tour operators provided valuable feedback for the improvement of the tourism offer in the Exploring Holpatin Trail and had the opportunity to network towards the development of new tour packages.

The Regional Mayan Community-Based Tourism Project is being executed by the Mundo Maya organization and funded by the Inter-American Development Bank and aims to develop emblematic community-based tourism projects in Mayan communities and to lay the foundations for national tourism policies that scale up community-based tourism based on the Mayan culture in the Mundo Maya region.
