When Traveling Buy Indigenous Crafts and Art

Fine Maya Art, Crafts, Replica Pottery and Jewelry at Toh Botique, Chichen Itza, Yucatan.

It is a good habit to buy Indigenous! It helps generate income for local communities.  We at Yucatan Adventure often extol the merits of "Buying Native" or purchasing from a local Mayan artisan whenever possible, and when you visit Chichen Itza or any other tourist site in Yucatan, it's a wonderful time to put that ideology into practice; but if you want to make a greater sustainable contribution we suggest you come to the Toh Boutique at Hacienda Chichen Resort, this exquisite Mayan Boutique dedicates its profits to the Maya Foundation In Laakeech NGO green sustainable programs gear to support the welfare of Maya Children, local communities, and the environment!

Toh Boutique Store, Chichen Itza
Profits from The Toh Boutique are shared with the indigenous artisans and Maya master ceramists and jewelers.  Each art craft, textile, or jewelry found at this lovely little boutique is carefully selected and an original piece of art!  You get to have it all, a beautiful purchase Mayan piece, and the joy of helping the social and environmental programs of this non-profit sustainable civil society.  To learn more about where the profits go and how they help the Maya local children and communities, visit Yucatan Adventure Eco Travel Guide online at
