Santa Comes to Maya-land

Juguetón Baxal-Paal is a project that began in 2007. Its purpose is to distribute as many Christmas gifts as possible every December to children in the Mexican state of Quintata Roo. Hundreds of gifts are donated by the students of Centro Educativo Baxal-Paal in Playa del Carmen, who choose to give some of their own toys to other children in remote parts of the state. And as attention to this project continues to increase with every passing year, additional gifts, donations, gift bags and wrapping paper are also flowing in from as far as Holland, England and the United States.

It was a great pleasure to take part in helping out Santa during the project’s 2011 chapter. Please visit the Juguetón Baxal-Paal Facebook page to find out more and/or to offer your own support. A special thanks goes to Mexico Kan Tours, local travel agency who sponsored this season’s cheerful Mayan Christmas story.
