Nanciyaga is the northernmost tropical rainforest on the planet, and was home to the ancient Olmecas.

The mystique and beauty of this treasured area is evidenced by its lush forests, authentic native culture, and historical significance near of one of the oldest cities in America.

Just 13 km away is Eyipantla falls, where Mel Gibson starred in Apocalypto. At Eyipantla, you can climb down hundreds of steps and bask in the soothing spray of the waterfall.

The comfortable housing arrangements at Nanciyaga perfectly compliment the courteous and engaging staff, many of whom are student volunteers from the local university.
