General Info

The perfect activity for those who want to experience a culture, have fun and give back while on holiday. A knowledgeable guide will take you to a local park to meet the senior residents of Cozumel, who are eager to share their accumulated knowledge with you about the traditions of Cozumel and Mexico. The elders will teach you how to prepare truly authentic Mexican salsa recipes (and try it with tortillas!!), how to dance typical rhythms, how to paint traditional costumes, and how to make hammocks using weaving techniques passed through from generation to generation. During the day you will learn new skills and create special connections that will transcend language barriers, guaranteed. At the end of the experience you will have time to browse among the handmade products, which make great souvenirs, especially knowing that the full proceedings will go directly to the manufacturer(s). Your new senior friends will remind you that life isn’t just about money, jobs, or careers, life is about making the best out of it, sharing and connecting with others. And this is exactly what this smiles-filled activity will enable you to do: connect with locals in a meaningful way, learning from them about Cozumel traditions, while helping them feel useful despite being out of the workforce, for a more dignified life. Human connection is the best medicine! More than a tour, this is an intimate and enriching interchange between people, culture, lifestyle, and history in one experience. Proceeds go towards DIF to support the program and the residents’ needs.
