Rainforest Medicine Trail

Rainforest Medicine Trail Review

The Rainforest Medicine Trail at The Lodge at Chaa Creek, originally developed by natural medicine guru Rosita Arvigo, gives you a quick introduction to traditional Mayan medicine. The trail takes you on a short, self-guided walk through the rain forest, giving you a chance to study the symbiotic nature of its plant life. Learn about the healing properties of such indigenous plants as red gumbo-limbo and see some endangered medicinal plants. The shop here sells Mayan medicinal products like Belly Be Good and Flu Away.
