The Host : My name is Jorge. I was born in Chiapas, Mexico. My love for the natural world and Mayan culture was passed down from my parents. My family lived primarily from the land. They did not have access to a grocery store so they grew their own food, made their own medicines and lived in harmony with the natural world. My love for birds became apparent the day I tried to sneak a baby duck home from the market in my coat. Everything was fine until…. well ummm ducks go “quack quack”! My parents made me return the duck and learn the fine lesson of integrity.
Coming of age, feeling the pull of adventure I knew it was time to leave the nest. In 1996, I set off to discover to the Yucatan Peninsula. Eventually finding my way to Quintana Roo, which later proved to be a time of great spiritual, personal and professional growth. I became active in Maya communities as a voice for those without and studied Maya traditions under the village grandfathers. I have made many friends along the way. These friendships have played a major role in the opportunities that have crossed my path.
I am an artist, an educator and a father of two. Also talented photographer, who has a way of exquisitely capturing wildlife in their natural habitats. Adorned in ceremonial jewelry and barefoot most of the time. 20+ years of experience as a nature and wildlife guide. First Aid certified with Red Cross.
