Sometimes you find out items about a culture in the most unexpected of places. I was returning from the bathroom and there was a sign on the wall about the correct use of language towards neuro diverse people in society. It gave 4 different types of disabilities like physical or mental etc and listed how that had been addressed in the past with the terms that should be used now. Considering this was a tourist spot to view flamingos I was amazed that Mexicans were so politically correct.
The Mexicans also know all about the plastic crusade and will try to sell you guoards as replacements for plastic drinking cups. You can also get the metal straws to replace the plastic kind. They are passionate about there Mayan heritage so you get know all about Sisal which comes from the agave plant. This is a strong fibre that you can make hammocks or shirts from.
