The basecampers discover that “Chiclets” means chewing gum in Mayan while on a tour of the rainforest gum plantation in the Sian Ka’an biosphere reserve in Mexico. They are guided through the whole process of the harvesting of the sap of the “Manilkara chicle tree” and then boiling it into gum - just like the Mayans!
