So to prove that there is more to Riddled than the snake-oil industry, let's look at what appears to be a reënactment of The Mosquito Coast, on location in Belize, with a cast of mostly non-professionals, possibly to become a reality-TV show. Of great interest to the Riddled Amateur Dramatic Society.
Heavy Metal: Not a reliable source
about classical Yucatán culture
Belize, Uncle Smut? Isn't that where John McAfee was holed up, experimenting with a radically transhumanist diet of cognitive enhancers and herbal antibiotics and cocaine, until he was spirited away in precipitous haste by a phalanx of well-remunerated lawyers, to avoid tedious questions about the murder of the neighbouring beachcomber along the Caribbean coastline?
Indeed it is, well done younglings. The McAfee episode was just another example of the over-representation of Belize in the fictive realm. Belize punches above its weight in terms of literary footprint... it must be a tradition, or an old charter or something. Or due to its status as an English-speaking enclave along the Yucatán peninsula.

One can only speculate if cenote diving is part of the curriculum for Amanda Mary Jewell's Healing Training Centre:
Amanda Mary the bleach-enema hotelier and GcMAF peddler, last seen in Mexico as Senior Cancer Researcher, claiming the dubious imprimatur of a Mexican cancer-quackery clinic? Talking patients out of treatment and generously setting up crowd-sourcing fundraisers for them to pay for her own...Maybe.
You promised a break from GcMAF.
I lied. Oh look,
But there were two drawbacks to this scheme. First, the location pencilled in to accommodate the three-week group encounter consists of four cabanas for guest couples and a one-bedroom bungalow for the owners, so 40 larval-stage grifters would present some over-crowding, even if the 7-acre grounds become a camping site. Second, the reason why wannabee Alt-Med scammers want to be Alt-Med scammers is that they don't have money, so discouraging expressions of impecunious enthusiasm comprise the comment thread -- "I would love to attend, if only I had spare $3000!"
So the posts were unposted from the FaceBukkake, and all those comments were lost in time, like tears in rain. Their place has been taken by the Other Other operation, targetted at a more select clientele of unwell persons -- fewer of them, but each willing to spare $25000 for food & board (therapy prices extra), 1/2 deposit in advance.
Just look at it:

Amanda Mary was trying five years ago.
Details of the Platinum Program have changed little from the non-precious program -- which cost $3000 in Feb. 2016, $5000 in September, and then metamorphosed like a beautiful butterfly into the Diamond Program at $25000 for two -- bruited about in the days of Amanda's purported affiliation to the Flor de la Salud disk-surgery-cures-everything butcher, when she claimed to be their agent and was inviting payments on their behalf.* But the imagery of promised accommodation (all blue-sea-and-palmtrees) is new; the photographs are not the Bamboo Beach Resort and there are many silver milk-bottle tops payable to anyone who recognises their actual source. Though the scheme does not require the provision of genuine Belizean accommodation, fine dining, or trained medical personnel even in the unlikely event of some sucker ponying up the deposit, so the question is noncupatory.
This will leave the Bamboo Beach Resort free to become the campus of Healing Oracle University!
more details are revealed, or the post is unposted -- whichever comes first -- it remains unclear whether the curriculum will include sniper schools and military survival games for children.
BONUS AMJ deleted FB post. Human-centipede-style repetition of the "abortions cause cancer" lie made up decades ago by shameless forced-birthers, adorned with freshly-fabricated numbers like so many non-pareils, and presented warm and still glistening with rectal mucus...
* It is not clear quite why and when AMJ and the Flor de la Salud clinic parted ways. Perhaps the latter changed the locks to stop her sneaking in to pose for lab-coated selfies in the head-quack's office and in the operating room, which all attracts publicity, but not the right kind.
UPDATE2. B4 is being wrong in the comments:
Needs more "Classical Maya Astronaut Bas-Relief"...You say "Mayan Astronaut", John Sladek says girl-abducting Robot.
