What you'll do

This is a great introduction to the indigenus Pre Hispanic cultures of Mesoamerica. Join me in a visual tour and talk through Mexico and its indigenous Prehispanic civilizations: the foundation with maize domestication, the origins with the olmecs, the elements share by all the peoples of Mesoamerica, the art of counting time (calendars), the pyramids and the sacred stories. In this journey we´ll go deep to the indigenous worldview through their art and architecture. My perspective of prehispanic Mexico is the result of twenty years of research in the historical and archaeological sources, and personal experience with indigenous groups. It´s difficult to express what kind of experience I co-create so it is worth to check the reviews on my Pilgrimage to the Hill of the ancestors experience: https://www.airbnb.mx/experiences/329675
For me, traveling is a way of "know thyself", this is not a journey with the body, but it´s a journey in spirit and mind, join me, let me show you the Mexico I see.
