Ask Maximón for miracles 

If you have little miracles you need Maximón's help with, e-mail him at maximon(at) - REMEMBER TO CHANGE THE (at) to an "@" sign - in any language - he'll get the message.

If you would like me to give him offerings for you (rum, tobacco products, incense, or other things) e-mail me at the address above and I'll tell you how to get to me by postal mail. 

What is in the picture?
