Poling a pipante in the rapids was a challenge for us, no problem for Maxi and Elias who do it daily

Poling a pipante against a strong current requires skills and power. Young Pech men of Las Marias.

Mario is teaching us how to assemble a raft with strong vines

In Las Marias, Francisco was happy to help us unload gear

All the people in Las Marias are skilled carpenters, and the skills come at an early age

Thatching is easy, collecting the leaves was the tough part

The traditional Pech house is simple. No walls, a thatch roof, a hammock, a clay stove
and a few cooking utensils. (House of Pech elder, Don Divio Ramos Torres, Waiknatara).
