Activity Wish List
Although many of the thousands of visitors that flock to the Riviera Maya go to local sites of interest such as the Mayan ruins and amusement parks, it is a sad fact that many of the children who are born and grow up here never have the opportunity to visit these places. In fact, some of the local Mayan children have never even been to the ruins in Tulum to experience their amazing heritage for themselves.
Part of our mission at Hekab Be is to teach the children of Akumal about their traditional culture and expose them to places that they would never otherwise have the opportunity to experience. Through this activity wishlist, you can help our students discover their local area and its many wonderful attractions by sponsoring a day trip or activity for our children, donating funds towards a planned trip, or joining the children on a visit to a site of your choice.
Some of the places we would like to take the children, and experiences we would love them to have, are:
- Tulum Ruins
- Coba Ruins
- Muyil Ruins
- Sian Kaan Biosphere
- Punta Laguna Nature Reserve
- Dos Ojos Museo de la Prehistoria
- Rio Secreto
- Swimming classes
- Horse Riding
These are just a few suggestions of locations where the children can have new experiences, learn new skills, and explore their local culture.
If you need any more information about how you can help provide one or more of these activities, or if you have a suggestion for another activity you’d like to gift, then please contact us through our Facebook page.
