Conejo is a Q’echqi village located on the all weather Sunday Wood road. The population of the village consists of approximately 200 people, with about 20 households. The village is located on National Land, and, as far as can be ascertained, no one has any lease. The economic activities of the community are limited to subsistence farming (milpa-farmed rice, corn and beans). A few farmers cultivate organic cacao for the sale to the Toledo Cacao Grower’s Association (TCGA). Conejo is one of the oldest villages in the region, with a history of over 100 years of settlement and cultivation. Over time the village has experienced both in and out migration. Conejo and Midway are perhaps the two villages which the most direct interest in the park, as both lie within about one and a half to two miles from the park boundary, and both have traditionally farmed within the park area.

Conejo relies on limited number hand pumps for water, but most families use surface water bodies to collect the domestic water supply. The village has no electricity. There is a primary school, and the alcalde performs community police functions. Housing consists of thatch and there are no shops. The radio-telephone that was established by the Toledo health service is non-functional. Chub’s Crique Sarco bus service passes through the village, bound for the Punta Gorda market on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
