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  

Want to visit Chichen Itza? Don't take a day tour bus trip, instead book a night or better yet, two nights at the lovely Hacienda Chichen Resort, Yucatan's top Green Spa Destination, an enchanting secluded small boutique hotel offering you the perfect green vacation with lots of eco-cultural activities to choose from.  Visit their website at 

The Hacienda Chichen has now two resident volunteers helping visitors get to know the Maya and their land.

I have lived off and on in Yucatan and Chiapas. Always buy indigenous crafts. I'm an artist and would like to know if I can use some of the images of vessels, etc in my art? Thanks, Geanee
