Proyecto Yum Kaax can keep existing thanks to you!
WHAT IS THE “PROYECTO YUM KAAX” ??
The desire for another world; another life style where we would share, discover, learn and connect.
Looking at the actual world crises and all the things we are going through (climate change, hunger, pandemic, world wild depression and so on… just to name a few), we found ourselves building an alternative lifestyle!
We found ourselves stepping back in time, experimenting and adapting ancestral knowledge to our actual world.
We are looking for a change, preserving what needs to be and evolving towards a more humble and natural life where we can happily be ourselves.
Are you having the same call? You’re not alone in this! We are already working on a better place for us to live!
Everything started when Florian, from Belgium, started his project “Sharebybike” by bicycle across various continents between 2015 and 2017. While crossing Chiapas for the first time, he realized he was on the way to creating his childhood dream!
The Proyecto Yum Kaax really started 3 years after the end of his trip, in January 2021 on the 8 hectares of magical valley which use to be an old coffee plantation.
We aim to protect the luxurious tropical ecosystem and its reforestation while integrating an ecovillage with an educative and wellness center.
YUM KAAX, in the local Mayan culture is the guardian of Nature and of its inhabitants. Located in the state of Chiapas close to the city of Tapachula, in south of Mexico: It is a little tropical paradise, in the luxurious jungle of the pacific coast surrounded by mountains and volcanos. This place, forgotten for years, also benefits from many fruit trees, a river, small hills and fresh springs, with a tropical humid climate in a temperature range of 20 to 30°c.
We dedicate ourselves to the environmental, social, and cultural protection and development in comm-UNITY.
We are working in harmony with nature: instead of adapting the environment to us, we adapt ourselves to the environment. We use the permaculture principles, agroecology, eco-building, we bring attention on ecological awareness, use of natural materials and resources, have a zero waste goal and so much more…
Every day we share and we learn together. It’s an incredible experience connecting with each other and connecting to nature, greetings everyone with equal respect.
