Come out and support an amazing cause benefitting the local Riviera Maya community! The Tulum Rotary Club will be hosting a dinner and wine tasting event in early October to raise funds and awareness for the incredible medical work that they are doing with nearby Mayan communities as well as low-income families.

The Tulum Rotary Club is currently involved in a variety of medical programs to help people in the area who otherwise might not have access to information and treatment. Some of their programs include:

  • An education and prevention program for sexually transmitted diseases (especially AIDS) in the community of Yaxché, including informational posters in Spanish and Mayan, testing kits, and liaison services with doctors
  • An educational program teaching local children about brushing their teeth and good oral hygiene
  • Working with teams of doctors from the United States who travel to Campeche, Merida and Chetumal to operate on children from low-income families, especially children with cleft palates. This October, a team of doctors and nurses will be volunteering in Merida for Rotary International together with a Florida hospital, and the Tulum Rotary Club is sending 2 children for operations. These teams of doctors typically come down every 2 - 3 years, operating on 30 - 40 children a day for a week.

The Tulum Rotary Club dinner and wine tasting will be held on Friday, October 4 at 7:30 pm at Kinich restaurant in downtown Tulum.
