El Jaguar

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” Our quote this month seems appropriate since it’s the month of “love and friendship;” but also because this edition has so many great places to go and things to do that we hope you will experience with all your heart. Did you fall in love with the baby jaguar on our cover? You can read about the significance of the “balam” to the Maya on page 1. Traditional musical instruments page 4, and the history of the “sacbé” is on page 9. We have two new monthly articles! “Take it With You” on page 6 will focus on what you can shop for while you are here and take back home with you; and, back by popular demand, “A Seven Day Stay” on page 19. In the mood for a big party? Carnaval gets underway on February 22 at Xmatkuil; the schedule is on page 5. For an unusual art experience, check out Nahualli Galería on page 7. If you like markets, you can find out about three of our favorites on page 8.
