A new month has come! We will be celebrating the special people who have raised us to become the individuals we are today — our mothers; let’s also celebrate our collective Mother (Mother Earth) who sustains life on this planet for us all! Let’s take a walk and relax, pay tribute to nature and feel deep inside the connection to it.

For this month we have ballet, mantras and songs, tons of sightseeing and most important, giving yourself the opportunity to live now and here. Visit our Wellness Center and check out all the activities we have for you. Celebrate 5 de Mayo with tacos or simply enjoy a Marquesita in a public square; witness one of the most ancient traditions from the Mayans at the Sacred Mayan Journey at Xcaret or visit Pueblo Magico of Bacalar for a couple of days. Enjoy yourselves and never stop looking for new experiences, learning and developing inner growth, through meditation and nature contact.

"The real journey in life is interior; it is a matter of growth, deepening, and of an ever greater surrender to the creative action of love and grace in our hearts." —THOMAS MERTON, "THE ROAD TO JOY"

experience at Teatro de la Ciudad in Playa del Carmen, Monday May 15th at 19:30


Teatro de Cancun opens its doors May 5, 6 and 7 to the Cancun International Ballet Festival, where master classes, lectures, presentations and a Closing Gala with professional international performers take place to make it as simple as it gets for everyone involved in the beauty of ballet.


A few minutes before sunrise, in front of the Xcaret inlet, the powerful sound of the "tunkul” drum indicates that the 11th edition of the Sacred Mayan Journey is beginning.

Four hundred canoers will depart from here. Both men and women after months of preparation and encouraged by the great fighting spirit, will cross the sea on traditional canoes to Cozumel Island, to receive the message of the goddess Ixchel.

Live this ancient tradition on May 26th and 27th, which Experiencias Xcaret, along with the effort of the canoers, has made possible for eleven consecutive years. Don’t miss this spectacular event and be part of the tradition!

Marquesitas are delicious sweet treats made in the street all over the Yucatan Peninsula. Watching a marquesita being made is part of the fun of getting one. They are a crispy crepe rolled up and filled with melted shredded dutch edam cheese and a sweet filling of your choice, including Nutella, jam, peanut butter, cajeta, chocolate or condensed sweetened milk. The origin of this delicious Yucatecan dessert go back to Merida in 1938, when the founder of a local ice-cream stand, Don Polo and his son VIcente, were looking for a different way to keep up their business during the winter months. They started selling waffer cones experimenting with fillings, rolling them up and eventually stuffed them with cheese. They became very popular during the 1940s with all sectors of Merida society and it is believed that they were named Marquesitas after a marquis grandchildren who favored these snacks.


Set on the edge of a large fresh water lagoon, Bacalar is a small town largely untouched by the upscale tourism. In fact, this true gem remains largely skipped over for the international visitors. For those of us that have a little more time, or enjoy avoiding the crowds that congregate around the coast, Laguna Bacalar should not be missed! This impressive “seven color lagoon” extends quietly and picturesque next to the village of Bacalar as a perfect scenario for adventure and nature lovers. Cenote Azul is also a must. Any diver visiting the area will not leave without experience Cenote Azul. Even those who do not practice the sport will marvel at its beauty. Located


on one side of Laguna Bacalar is an open cenote and each visit will offer a new discovery. Whatever your diving experience, there is an adventure that will suit your level so do not forget to visit one of the most beautiful places in the country.

Bacalar has a lot of history to tell;. In 2006, Bacalar near Cancun was added to the list of Pueblos Mágicos due to its rich Mayan history. As one of the major trading centers in Central America, this seaside village was repeatedly sacked by pirates for both its worldly merchandise and abundance of dye wood. It was the scenario of multiple clashes between Mayans and Spaniards and later became victims of English, French and Dutch pirates. Fort San Felipe, located in the centre of town, was one of the final bastions to fall to the Spanish, the fort itself and its small museum are a worthwhile stop for anybody interested in history.

While years have passed since the days of pirates, Bacalar, situated at just 25 miles north of Chetumal, still remains a place of interest for those visiting the Caribbean coast of Mexico who like not only history, but nature at its best.


In Mexico, May 5th commemorates the victory of the most important battle for the country’s army: La Batalla de Puebla, back in 1862. In this battle the Mexican army was led by General Ignacio Zaragoza, vwho defeated the powerful and experienced French army, not to be confused with 16 de Septiembre, Mexico’s Independence Anniversary (1810).

In Mexico, this victory is remembered, sometimes making a recreation and having the day off at schools; however, this day is probably more celebrated in the US than in Mexico; big parties are held and margaritas, guacamole and tacos are enjoyed all over. But why? Why has May 5 became THE Mexican day in the US? Reasons can be found back in


Yoga could be the answer to looking more youthful. A consistent yoga practice helps reverse processes that happen as our bodies age, such as increased oxidation and acidity, cell damage and inflamed tissues, which can all lead to illness and disease over time. Research has shown that a consistent yoga practice helps decrease all these conditions for better long-term health, not to mention younger-looking skin. Namaste!
