The International Women’s Club of Merida is sponsoring a fund raising tour to the lesser known archaeological sites in southern Campeche and Quintana Roo. Everyone enjoyed last year’s excursion to Chiapas, and this 5 night, 6 day trip is sure to be just as interesting and fun. Sergio Solis will be the guide – and Jorge and I will be going along to help out where we can.
The proceeds will help support the IWC’s community service projects, in particular the scholarship fund. This initiative makes it possible for young Yucatecan women, with limited financial means, to pursue their university studies.
If you live in Merida, this is a great way to meet new friends and to see part of the cultural heritage that is so much a part of south-eastern Mexico. For travelers who want to experience “off the beaten trail” tourism – this is just what you are looking for!
