Volunteer Work Camps in the indigenous communities of Yucatan serve the social , environmental, infrastructure and community education needs in Ek Balam.
Ek Balam is a mixed community of Mayan origin in the Yucatan Peninsula, located 2 hours from the capital city of Merida. Volunteers can stay from 3 to 8 weeks. These projects only run until December 2013.
Volunteers work during the week starting Monday at 8 am and complete their work on Friday at 4 pm with an evaluation of the project. Weekends are free to travel.
This is an amazing opportunity to immerse yourself in the heart of the Mayan world. Participants on this project will live and work with a Mayan community and share their experience with other volunteers around the world. Weekends are free to explore the wonders that the Yucatan Peninsula has to offer.
