The Maya navigated the Yucatan Peninsula coast trading goods from distant lands, one of such goods was sea salt, a key ingredient of their diet. One of the main places of production was the area that now is the Ria Lagartos Biosphere Reserve, where sea salt is produced to this day. The base location to explore this magnificent reserve is the small fisherman's town of Rio Lagartos, Yucatan, Mexico.
