We follow the tracks of Puerta Verde, a sustainable tourism project that was launched to support the neglected Mayan communities at the north tip of the Yucatan peninsula. On our way to see some giant trees of the subtropical rain forest, we stop at Maya Dzak, a women-operated cooperative that sells organic products (soaps, sunblock, shampoo, etc).

Born at the North Sea coast in Germany, where green tourism prevails, I have developed a strong tie with Mother Nature. With the itch of my first Saturn return I left my hometown to live between Germany, France, California and Mexico. My interest in studying and teaching languages has been a helpful tool to communicate efficiently with other cultures, while my administrative and business education is a solid base for all of my enterprises. My understanding of tourism, coupled with my passion for the outdoors and nature, and my interest in ancient high-cultures, as well as the experience gained through my work in the special needs field, have led me to launching Project Mayan Encounter in 2008. Since then I am dedicated to providing meaningful travel opportunities for nature lovers, seniors, students and special needs groups. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
