Giving back to the real Local people, the Mayans.

Community Engagement

Giving back to our local communities is an element of The Custom Tour's fiber. Because we live, work and play in our communities, we take social responsibility seriously by supporting local schools, libraries or rural towns. The Custom Tour is part of a larger community in the Yucatan Peninsula that has its own unique character and needs. We are willing to become better citizens by starting with innovative local charities and reaching out to lend a hand in creative and meaningful ways. Meeting the locals and connecting with those in need through a wide variety of donations such as school supplies, toys or second hand clothes. Above all else, we demonstrate the utmost respect for the people, local culture of the communities and the land we call home. Click here to learn more about The Custom Tour's Philosophy.

Rural School on the way to Dos Ojos Cenotes

A lot of people come here without knowing what to expect in the Riviera Maya. We can tell you since we moved here the local richness and the abundance of nature have changed our lives completely in the most positive ways!


We have learned that the real people of this land are not the "Mexicans" but the authentic natives of this land: The "Maya" people. Today there are hundreds of families living in different conditions as we are used to in the cities or developed countries. Just a few minute drive will take you into the most amazing and incredible basic societies that first were established in the Yucatan Peninsula thousands of years ago.


Today we pass by different Mayan Villages while we search for unique places, to snorkel and take pictures of the unique locations we visit during a Custom Tour in the Mexican Caribbean.


We would like to invite you to be part of this emotive and grateful sharing experience! We are just a "link" between your generosity and your willing to share, give & make lives better by donating second-hand clothes, toys or school backpacks.


Experiment a complete new way of supporting local communities as you have an incredible day touring with your family or friends. You may donate as little or as much as you want! Bring with you some coloring books or a football if you want to share with the local kids.


We can make a little stop depending on your itinerary at:


  • The Rural Elementary School, (only possible with Coba Tour) remember they also have school holidays!
  • The Mayan Village. This place has no school but it is really magical to see their homes, bring second hand toys and clothes!
  • Hekab-Be Public LibraryThe local kids are learning English and spending quality time with the volunteers from North America.


Let us know by the time you book if you would like to participate in this little human act.

Thanks for reading and thinking about it! 

Thank You Very Much For Sharing Your Love!

You will be helping the families of the Mayan Kids!
