“I can’t change the world, but I can change the world in me” —U2.


Dear reader, 


At Yucatán Today we decided to close the year with a surprise: we’re debuting a new page layout that, we hope, will help you navigate the magazine more easily, and quickly find whatever you’re looking for. Plus, the magazine is growing from 60 to 64 pages, which gives us more room to include some of the things we used to keep wishing we could include. We now have, for example, a section on how to take care of oneself in Yucatán; interestingly enough, our first article for it is about how to handle change positively. You can start putting it into practice by letting us know your thoughts about our new layout. 


Our main calling and mission, however, don’t change a bit: we’re still devoted to showing you some of the treasures that await on your trip throughout the state. In this edition, for example, we take you to two places very close to my own heart: Tekit and Tizimín. Tekit, because it’s the birthplace of my great-grandfather, Delio Alonso (but also Alonzo) Novelo. Tizimín, because that’s where my grandfather, Alonso Navarrete Pérez, was from, and even mayor. Both will be dressing up (quite literally) to welcome you with open arms and hearts during their upcoming celebrations. 


Just like those, in Yucatán there are hundreds—no, thousands of things to see, do, and discover. In this issue we try to present you with plenty of ideas, so you can create a visit that’s perfectly customized to your time and your interests. No matter what you choose or how you do it, we’re sure it’ll be unforgettable.
