Bees: Guardians of the Ecosystem and Treasures of the Riviera Maya

On this World Bee Day let’s talk about the fascinating little creatures that are buzzing around in our world: our lovely Bees in Mexico! These tiny powerhouses aren’t just cute honey-making insects; they’re also super necessary for our ecosystem and survival. 

Here in Mexico, we have a remarkable diversity of bees, some of which have very distinct characteristics and behaviors compared to their European honeybee counterparts. Melipona Bees, are native to the Yucatán Peninsula and play a vital role in the region’s biodiversity and pollination. Trigona Bees are known for their exceptional honey production, with distinct flavors that reflect the diverse flora of the Riviera Maya. Both are endangered stingless bees, and that’s why the role of apiaries is really significant in this region.

These buzzing insects play a crucial role as pollinators, which means they are pretty much the rock stars of our agricultural and ecological systems. The fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds we enjoy owe a huge debt to these little superstars!

🐝 To honor today’s World Bee Day we are planning a visit to a local apiary in Playa del Carmen, focused on re-homing, rescuing, and protecting the endangered native stingless bees of this region. 

Of course, our #MonthlyDonation will go towards this amazing project!!! Please join us in this visit to learn more about the incredible Melipona and Trigona Bees, on the 26th of May at 9am. Limited spaces are available; kindly e-mail us to to confirm availability and reserve your spot. 

Bees-curiosities that you probably didn’t know about :

🐝 Bees are excellent mathematicians. They have the ability to calculate the shortest flight path between flowers and their hive, optimizing energy efficiency.

🐝 In ancient Mayan civilization, honey held significant cultural and spiritual importance. It was used in rituals, as a natural sweetener and for medicinal purposes.

🐝 Beeswax, produced by bees to build their honeycombs, has been used for centuries in candle-making, cosmetics and even as a natural wood polish.

🐝 Honey is the only food that never spoils. Archaeologists have discovered pots of honey in ancient Egyptian tombs, that are over 3,000 years old and still perfectly edible!
