The Yucatan Peninsula Mission (YPM)

YPM is committed to serving the needs of the Mayan/Mexican people in the Zona Maya region of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Incorporated as a not-for-profit in both the US and Mexico, YPM provides opportunities for positive change to children, adults, families, and communities in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico -- through service projects, education, health care, cultural exchange and spiritual support.

The base of YPM is located in Leona Vicario, Quintana Roo, Mexico, and is equipped to host groups of up to 40 people. YPM provides safe and delicious meals, sleeping accommodations in hammocks or beds, and all in-country transportation.

We operate several kinds of trips for groups from the U.S.
