7 Fascinating Trips Deep into Indigenous Landscape and Culture
Numerous indigenous communities have united to offer travelers seeking unusual experiences the possibility of seeing the natural beauty of their homeland while also learning about their cultural legacy. We show you 7 successful cases or put differently, 7 trips you should make.
Mexico offers a full array of tourist attractions, but what better way to see them than by the hand of those communities that have preserved the mover the centuries and know all their secrets?
