Biologist Gretel Castillo, who is among the beekeepers keeping the ancient tradition alive, said that it is fortunate that young people in cities show a growing interest in the craft.
Demand for honey, one of Yucatán's better-known exports, has grown as fraudulent producers undercut legitimate beekeeping operations.
