Best of Chunhuhub
Previous kimkim travelers have stayed at a sustainable, family-run collection of cabanas set in the jungle. The Mayan hosts teach visitors about the extraction of the resin from the chicozapote tree, which has been used to make chicle (chewing gum) since pre-Colombian times. You can also help to harvest plants from the garden, and learn how to cook typical dishes of the region. Another option is to take a guided walk through the village, visiting the house of Chunhuhub elders to learn about the daily life and culture of the Mayan people today.
