Henry at Fort Bacalar

Fort Bacalar

In February 2012, Project Mayan Encounter welcomed its most mature traveler: a 90 year old biologist and former college professor!  He was eager to study the ecosystem of the Yucatan peninsula and learn about the Mayan culture.  His daughter accompanied him during this one week visit.

It was such a pleasure to spend time with this independent, appreciative and open-minded person.  Truly, he was an inspiration for everyone we met along the way.  He not only handled our email communication, itinerary adjustment and trip booking during the prior months of planning, but also challenged himself to some pioneer activities.  For the first time he used an electric scooter and sat in a kayak!

Meeting him reminded me that an optimistic mindset and a self-confident attitude towards life promote longevity and health.
