Arrival in Nuevo Durango. Nuevo Durango is a small town that converted to ecotourism and organic food production. It is a traditional Mayan village that has retained a strong cultural identity, in both language and retaining their customs. A nature conservation project gave them the means to create an ecotourism cooperative. Here you will have the opportunity to know and feel the beauty and tranquility of a life in balance with the environment. You’ll also find a small museum of insects. Above all do not miss the sunset, when thousands of swallows flutter in and out of an old well that also acts as a refuge for them. You will discover a cave and enjoy a moment of quietness and freshness in very special environment, accompanied by a local Spanish-speaking guide of the cooperative.
