Alejandro holds a bachelor in economics and English. He uses his affinity with finance and writing to support Duende Tours in these fields.
He loves nature and would like to show everybody how wonderful a jungle walk can be. "Life in the city can make you forget about the nurturing qualities nature has. Nature can help you discover things about yourself, you didn't know. When you find yourself surrounded by trees and animals you can take your time to reflect on things we forget about when we are living our busy city-lives.
Duende Tours offers people a comfortable way to reach places that are unavailable for other travelers", he says.

To remedy this fundamental problem with boredom at the hotel, we have accumulated a few of the most outrageous Riviera Maya resorts that will keep you on your toes.
The power of the Mayan civilization stretched for almost the entire length of South America. The Mayan ruins that have been left behind are the only lasting memory we have of what the Mayans did for a living, how they worshiped, and how they went about making their civilization. Some of the Mayan ruins have dated back as early as 5000 BC, while others are as new as 1500’s.
Most of the Mayan ruins fall in between those two times though, such as Palenque located in Chiapas, Mexico. Palenque has become one of the most influential ruins in the modern understanding of the Mayan people. The reason behind this is the vast amount of detailed work that archeologists have done there. Some speculate that Palenque is one of the most excavated and studied Mayan sites anywhere in Mesoamerica.
The Mayans and Aztecs both got a great amount of uses and nutrition out of maize. And, for those who are unsure what it is, well… it’s corn. Some of the earliest corn farms have been found in the Mayan and Aztec territories. Many archeologists have speculated that it was the Mayans that had first mastered the idea of farming and irrigation. Newer evidence has emerged that has made the corn seed seem viable as a farming product far before the Mayans, Aztecs, or Olmecs. Signs of living, farming and harvesting corn have been discovered in the South American territories as early as 5,000 B.C.
Farming foods in the lush jungle landscape is what kept the Mayan alive. Most of the foods they harvested included beans, manioc (tubers), and maize. The Mayans and the Aztecs had to do this while accompanying it with hunting to accommodate for the proper nutrition and protein that they needed. Many have pondered, what did the Mayans drink? Even though they lived in jungle, fresh and abundant rainwater wasn’t a reliable option.
Bird watching is one of the favorite pastimes of American nature lovers. There are about 70 million people in the United States who engage in birding, some of them not even knowing what they are doing. Birding or bird watching is a recreational activity done by observing birds.
