Dear TAO Family and Friends,

Here we are in 2014 and it looks like a year full of great potential and positive change. Of course the New Year is a natural time to make new plans, new intentions, and new promises to ourself and others.

Remember these tips as you consider your New Year's resolutions: make your goals as specific and behavioral as possible (instead of, "I will lose ten pounds," try, "I will eat smaller portions and will exercise four times a week for forty minutes); write your intention and plan down and keep it somewhere visable; share your intentions with a coach or encouraging friend; and create some way to monitor your steps to help you stay on track (use a calendar, an app, a coach, a checklist etc.).

Our team is excited about 2014 and we have lots of great plans for making the community the best it can be. Expect to see some great speakers at TAO this year, wonderful weather and developments in the Riviera Maya and countless reasons to visit.

All of us here at TAO are wishing you a wonderful new year, filled with the very best of health and happiness.


Jonathan Ellerby PhD.

CEO, TAO Inspired Living

Did you know that...

The Cenotes (Mayan word meaning ‘well of water’) would have to be the most spectacular thing to see in Mexico.  There are an estimated 6000 of them and less than half have been explored.  

The limestone cave systems of Quintana Roo are the longest underwater caves in the world; the area has the top four cave systems with a combined total of 365 miles, the largest being almost 145 miles!

Cenote Azul is located just 15 minutes from Akumal and is one of the most spectacular cenotes in the Yucatan Peninsular, read more here.

The outdoor living space of the TOWNHOMES merge with the Mayan jungle and allow residents to enjoy the natural surroundings from the comfort of their backyard patio, or while relaxing on the rooftop terrace.

The Townhomes feature two spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an open living room, well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and a home office area.
