With the arrival of April, you may want to be a little more cautious or skeptical, watching for a prank in April Fool’s Day. At TAO we always enjoy having fun and making the most out of our days here in Riviera Maya, knowing and making conscious that we live in a true paradise, so be aware of the pranks but also laugh out loud and enjoy yourself every day!

We want you to enjoy each and every day of April, maybe go for an incredible gelato, enjoy an adrenaline rush while acrobats defy gravity in the sky or ride a bike commemorating the international bicycle day.

Never forget to take a look at the stars, even better, go sailing among the stars by visiting CHA'AN KA'AN, Cozumel’s planetarium. Get to know the biodiversity of this wonderful island and maybe go snorkeling or scuba diving to spot a spiny lobster in their natural habitat.

- To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your path, and don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest.

Although it's not an official holiday, April Fools' Day is celebrated all around the world as a day filled with practical jokes and general silliness.

The origins of this craziness remain a real mystery, although there some theories about it; some believe the first association between April 1 and playing tricks can be found in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales from 1392. Others believe that April Fools' Day was the result of a desire to celebrate the turning of the seasons around springtime.

Still, it is also held that April Fools' Day got its start because of the adoption of a new calendar in 1582. Many ancient cultures celebrated New Year's Day around April 1st. In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII ordered the use of a new calendar, but many people continued to celebrate New Year's Day on April 1st and other people made fun of them.

Here are three of the greatest April Fools' Day hoaxes of all time


• Swiss Spaghetti Trees — In 1957, the BBC news program “Panorama” announced that Swiss farmers were harvesting a record spaghetti crop, while projecting images of Swiss peasants pulling spaghetti from trees. Thousands of viewers were fooled. The BBC reported getting a lot of calls inquiring about ehere to get spaghetti trees! 4 units per level.

“Taco" Liberty Bell — In 1996, Taco Bell announced that it had bought the Liberty Bell. The Bell was going to be renamed the Taco Liberty Bell, thousands of citizens were fooled and called to complain. The company revealed it was a practical joke a few hours later, but not before reporters asked White House press secretary Mike McCurry about the sale. Creating a joke of his own, he responded that the Lincoln Memorial had also been sold and would now be known as the Ford Lincoln Mercury Memorial! April mass fool!

“Left-Handed" Whopper — In 1998, Burger King ran an advertisement in USA Today announcing its new "Left-Handed Whopper," which was specifically designed for left-handed people by rotating all condiments exactly 180 degrees. Thousands of customers had requested the new sandwich at their restaurants in the next 24 hours!

So beware! You may want to be a little more cautious or skeptical on April 1st, since family members, friends, neighbors or even the White House may try to fool YOU!

“Cha ́an Ka ́an” is the name chosen by the people in Cozumel. Cha ́an Ka ́an means “To watch or enjoy the sky”. By means of astronomical observation, the Mayas achieved scientific knowledge that still today amazes us for its precision and with it they regulated their life, religion and culture. To enjoy astronomy and the legacy of this millennial culture are part of the activities that take place in this complex for the spreading of science, technology and culture.

In addition to the planetarium proper, there’s an observatory, a number of outdoor horticultural exhibits, and a fun, modern “science museum” area focusing on Mayan astronomy and local flora and fauna.

It’s closed on Sundays. Check out their site for schedule of Dome Shows at the Planetarium.
