“Why would anyone eat anything other than breakfast food? ” —Leslie Knope.


Dear reader, 


Spring is in full bloom, and I want you to know it’s been an absolute pleasure making the magazine you’re holding, especially designed to help you make the most of these days when our thermometers start getting a workout. 


This month we’re celebrating the magic of everyday Yucatán, and the wonders that come up where you least expect them. Escaping the heat by sleeping in a hammock, and then “making” (hanging, or folding) it, in an action that happens so quickly it might look like a sleight of hand. Going to the market for the day’s groceries, greeting the “Venteros (booth attendants)” who very warmly offer fruits and vegetables that are miles ahead of those at the supermarket, both in price and quality. Taking a few minutes to hear (and with some patience, see) the dozens of bird species whose songs greet us every day. These are just a few of the habits that make Yucatán a welcoming place that attracts visitors from all over the world, and which we’re happy to show off on our pages. 


But this edition also brings you several options to escape, precisely, the everyday routine; for example, with extraordinary food, and, guess what, we have plenty of that here. As you may have guessed by looking at the quote above, I’m a breakfast food enthusiast; this month, we’re bringing you a list (in constant development) of fantastic places to start the day. Whether it’s to catch up with friends, a celebration for a special someone, or just to treat yourself (or yo’self, rather), you’ll surely find an option that catches your eye. 


Spring awaits, let’s make the most of it!
