Mundo Maya – which includes Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, and Honduras – is preparing to host a virtual trade event that will offer the international travel trade an opportunity to set up meetings with entrepreneurs of the Mundo Maya in a span of three days, from July 27 to 29, 2021.
Participants will be able to pre-register for 15 minute appointments with exhibitors as well as request last-minute meetings during the event. In addition, they will have the opportunity to listen to the tourism ministries of the Mundo Maya member countries share updated protocols and reopening details for each country.
The Mundo Maya Organization aims to position its region, once home to the ancient Mayan civilization, as a multi-destination. The 1,440-mile archaeological and ecological circuit runs through Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and five states in southern Mexico.
Within the borders of these five nations, a variety of ecosystems are found. These range from humid tropical forests, salt marshes and jungles, to highlands and mountain ranges reaching heights of 9,000 feet (2,700 meters), and the Caribbean coast, with the world’s second-largest barrier reef and some of its most beautiful beaches.
The region is also home to more than 200 monumental astronomical complexes that once served to map the skies for the ancient Maya. Today, the Mayas, who still inhabit the region — descendants of scientists, artists, warriors and merchants — participate in the creation of a sustainable tourism product that shares their natural and cultural inheritance with the world through the Mundo Maya Organization.
It is estimated that around 200 exhibitors representing the tourism sectors of Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico will participate in the virtual event, along with 250 buyers, wholesalers, tour operators and travel agents from all five domestic markets as well as North American markets such as the U.S., Canada, Panama and the Dominican Republic and South American markets including Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Peru.
