Where can you be among the Indigenous people of western coastal Mexico and enjoy the unspoiled beauty of a fishing village? Join us in Yelapa for a culinary adventure where you will learn about the foods, seasonal cooking traditions, and peoples of Mexico. Our journey includes gathering foods and herbs fresh from the land and sea and using them in our gourmet buffets. This is one of many opportunities open to you at CENTER for TRADITIONAL MEDICINE and Casa Xipe Totec(she-PAY TO-tek) in the village of Yelapa.

Hi Joyce,
The above blurb sounds good, but do you have something similar that involves
learning to use some traditional medicines. If so, I could put the above up
in the food section with a link to the full page "coming soon".

¡Que le vaya bien!
