"The Mayas believed that the great caves where secret rivers flow, called cenotes, were the hiding places of the gods. It was in this remote time, when the Maya people lived in the jungle, that they learned to acknowledge the gods of the rain, the wind and the sun, since every tree and animal there seem to have a spirit that guards them.
You cant go into the jungle and dont meet the Maya's. Ofcourse ... there is a lot changed but most of the Maya's still have a lot of customs they use to do since they ever start living. Playing in the water that the rain left is one of the things kids do all over the world, ... but here isnt a mum jelling to stop because maybe they can get durty !
This is the way we used to live too, we once were that poor and had that little and we HAPPY.
Wanna meet these people?
You are just one click away.
