“Yucatán Today is an Encyclopedia of information. It’s the front door to Yucatán.”
Marina Aguirre

As always, I’m opening this month’s letter with a quote…but this time it’s from a loyal reader/client. We often receive compliments from our readers and advertisers…they are all music to our ears…but this one affected us in a profound way, for her description is exactly what we strive for every day. I felt compelled to share it with you.

Marina, archaeologist and ethno-historian, is also an advertiser on our website; she organizes very special, personally guided themed tours to places like Calakmul, Oaxaca, México City, and Chiapas. Some of our readers travel with her, and just like Yucatán Today, they say that she is an encyclopedia of information, and she too strives for perfection.

As with any business, sometimes we fall short of our users’ expectations…but we are always open to receiving those comments as well. We have listened very carefully to what you said about our maps, and this month I can finally say that (I think!) we have addressed all your concerns: the “Central Mérida” map is back (on page 21); and we have placed the names of the restaurants, hotels, museums, etc. directly on the maps to make it easier to find your way around. Look on page 20 for a list of all our new map icons, and our “Travel Tips” on page 29 includes information about the way the city of Mérida is organized: this will make your “mapping” easier too!

Of interest in this month’s edition: chilling out in a hammock; independence festivities; the cenotes of Homún; and Maya medicine. Looking for a delicious meal which is famous all over México at this time of year? Read about Chiles en Nogada.

I would love to hear from you, too! Drop me a line and let me know how you like this month’s edition.
