Pink isn’t just a color, it’s an attitude! Miley Cyrus

Thanks to Miley Cyrus for her original take on color…and more about pink in a moment! When I think of the colors of our state, I visualize the perfect blue of our skies, the greenery of henequén and palm trees, and the scarlet of bougainvillea-covered walls.

But this month I invite you to consider a more varied palette! As you can see by our August cover, the interior walls of this grand salon at Hacienda Santa Cruz are a very soft and inviting yellow. Read all about the long history of this 17th century hacienda.

We tell you all about our tradition of fine gold and silver filigree jewelry. But gold and silver are really only the working colors whose job it is to adorn the colorfully embroidered attire of traditional Yucatecan “hipiles” and “ternos.”

Pink is the star color in our article about Las Coloradas. This is one of the few bodies of salt water in the world whose color is a perfect shade of pink, caused by micro-organisms and algae.

Now we change our focus to a more mystical one: the importance of the moon to the Maya. Whenever you gaze into the night sky and see a bright white full moon or burnt yellow harvest moon, we hope it will remind you of the wisdom of our people.

And now on to ice cream. Who can resist! We present you with the story of Domo Gelato, a local gelato store, and we have compiled a list of several ice cream parlors you can visit in Mérida, where the colors and flavors will make you dizzy with delight.

Enjoy the colors of Yucatán, wherever you go.
