THE JUNGLE TRIBE (Mexico's Most Remote Culture)

By Drew Binsky | DrewBinsky Travel | 16 Sep 2020


I've spent the past 72 hours living with Mexico's most remote indigenous tribe called the Lacandones, and it has been absolutely breathtaking!!! I've been on such a high over the last 24 hours as I've been editing this video nonstop, and I think you will really enjoy it.

There are less than 1,000 Lacandones remaining in 4 separate villages, all of which are deep in the Lacandon jungle in the state of Chiapas - about 10 miles from the Guatemalan border.

They dress themselves in white as a symbol of peace, grow their hair out as long as possible and speak one of the world's most unique languages called Hach tʼan. The Lacandons aren't always open to visitors, by my friend Diego and I were able to get special permission to observe their fascinating culture.

This is the 5th tribe I've spent quality time with around the world and it's something I really love doing. It's like hitting the 'refresh' button on life.

It allows me to see a different perspective on our existence and have a new appreciation for our beautiful planet.

Thanks as always for watching!
