Greetings TAO Family and Friends!

There are many special traditions surrounding Christmas in Mexico. Some of these originated in Spain and others developed due to Mexico's particular history. The festivities surrounding Christmas last through much of the month of December.

December is a magical month to be living at TAO. Don’t miss out on the various events that are coming up. At the beginning of the month Jane Corbett, our very own homeowner will be teaching us how to reconnect with nature and dealing with transition. Just after this 4 day event we have the Heartmath where we will be the opportunity to learn reliable, science-based tools that will help us bridge the connection between our heart and mind, and deepen the connection with the hearts of others.

On the 19th of December we will have our Christmas & White Elephant Party starting at 7pm and also our New Years Eve Party at 7pm.

My thought of the month: We all get the exact same 365 days. The only difference is what we do with them. — Hillary DePiano

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

Warm regards

Isaac Henares
Operations Director

Cenote Azul

Cenote Azul

One of the top attractions in the Riviera Maya and Playa del Carmen area are the cenotes, pronounced: Seh-no-tays.

This underground river system runs for hundreds of miles in this area. Some parts of these caves are completely underground, some are partially covered and some even sit on the surface like a lake. Some have really impressive stalactites and stalagmites, some are just fun to swim in and almost all are absolutely beautiful.
