“Sometimes just being on a beach with my loved ones is all the adventure I need.” Guy Laliberté

I grew up in Huntington Beach, in southern California, in the 1960s. My childhood is filled with happy memories of swimming in the sea, eating cherry-flavored snow cones, watching the surfers, and getting drowsy in the sun. It was the best time of the year, spent with family and friends, with the sounds of the Beach Boys on car and transistor radios everywhere.

Not much has changed! As Canadian Guy Laliberté writes in the quote we have borrowed from him this month, a simple day at the beach with family can be very satisfying. Whether you are going on a day trip or moving to the shore for an extended stay, we hope our magazine will be a part of your essential beach kit!

Here you will learn about the summer “temporada,” or season, when many Meridanos shift their focus to the beach. On page 6 we present you with some “beachy” shopping ideas. On page 8 read all about the beach towns on our coast, and pages 34-35 provide you with a list of seafood restaurants at the beach, check them on our online magazine.

There are plenty of activities to keep you busy on your non-beach days, too. On our cover and page 1 this month, you can read about the annual Tunich handcraft festival. The Fundación de Artistas (page 7 on our online magazine) is an inspiring artistic endeavor that you can’t miss. Also about a newly-released music video sung in Maya will remind you of how beautifully the past and present can be blended. And if a day trip to a pretty town with a stunning church sounds like a plan, read about Uayma on page 53 from our online magazine.

There’s no excuse for boredom this summer! Put your sunscreen on and a copy of Yucatán Today in your bag and enjoy what our state has to offer.
