1.- What is the Peninsular Alliance for Community Tourism?
We are an organization formed by three community tourism networks in the states of Campeche (Consejo de Turismo Rural de Campeche), Quintana Roo (Caminos Sagrados) and Yucatan (Co'ox Mayab), totaling 24 community enterprises.


2.- Can I book trips with you?
We are dedicated to promoting the services and activities offered by these community tourism networks, so in the sections 'Destinations' and 'The Alliance that makes it possible' we provide you with their contact information so that you can make your reservation directly with them.


3.- What activities can be done in the cooperatives?
The cooperatives offer a wide variety of nature and rural tourism activities, for example, swimming in cenotes, kayaking, coastal tours, community tours, lodging, food, among others. We invite you to get to know them here.


4.- What does community-based tourism mean?
Community-based tourism refers to the type of tourism in which the projects visited are planned, managed and operated by the same organizations made up of people from the communities. The type of activities may vary, but it will always be local groups that operate the services.

5.- What kind of clothes should I bring?

For daytime trips, it is recommended to wear comfortable clothing (short-sleeved shirt/blouse) and shorts, as well as comfortable walking shoes.


If you are going to do jungle activities such as hiking or bird watching, we recommend wearing pants, long-sleeved shirts and neutral colors, as well as closed shoes to avoid insect bites.


If you are going to spend the night you can also bring a pair of pants and a small sweater for the coolness of the night and morning.

To visit cenotes and the coast you can't forget your bathing suit.


6.- What kind of food is served in the cooperatives?
The cooperatives serve traditional dishes and snacks made with local products.

Corn dough, beans, onions, pork and chicken, seasonings such as achiote, pepper, oregano, cumin and cloves predominate. On the coast you can also find seafood and even crocodile meat.

7.- What is the climate like in the Yucatan Peninsula?
The climate in the Yucatan Peninsula is tropical, there are marked seasons, dry (November-May) and humid (June-October). The most pleasant months to visit the peninsula are between November and February, as temperatures are not usually so high. On the coast temperatures tend to be milder.

The hottest months are between April and August, so we recommend including a visit to our cenotes or lagoons in your travels.


8.- What additional things should I bring on the trip?

Bring comfortable clothes and shoes for walking, as well as a hat or cap and sunglasses. Do not forget sunscreen and mosquito repellent, preferably use biodegradable products.Another important thing to bring is a reusable water bottle or canteen, to hydrate yourself and avoid generating more garbage.
