The season Yucatecos love is finally here: baseball season kicks off on April 23, with our local Leones de Yucatán team as reigning champions! Don’t miss out on the experience; whether or not you’re a baseball fan, the atmosphere at the Kukulkán stadium is worth the visit. www.leones.mx
April 30 is Children’s Day in México, and kids can’t wait to be celebrated! Take yours to the Feria Infantil 2023 at the Siglo XXI convention center, with activities like bounce houses, robotics tournaments, music, and more. Free admission! Information at: 999 998 1916
May Day, or rather, International Workers’ Day, is a federal holiday in México. How about making the most of it by visiting the recently re-opened cenote Zací, In Valladolid? FB: Cenote Zací
Near Valladolid you’ll find the village of Yokdzonot. Make sure to stop there to see its cenote and take some pictures of the many cute houses decorated with Yucatecan-themed murals.
Mexicans celebrate Mother’s Day on May 10. Whether you celebrate then or on Sunday 14, brunch is always a great option. Al Modar, Mansión Mérida, and Rosas & Xocolate are a few to consider.
May is full of celebrations! The International Day of Families and Teacher’s Day are both on the 15th. How about spending it at Celestún? Take a tour of the estuary, have fun at Casa Peón, and enjoy breakfast at the market.
April 22 is Earth Day, and Kaxil Kiuic is a great idea to reflect and find out more about nature and everything it gives us. At this biocultural reserve you can hike and visit local Maya communities. www.kaxilkiuic.org.mx
The rising Yucatecan heat calls for a beach visit, and so does the port of Chelem. Relax in its emerald-green water and enjoy the food at Restaurante Costa Azul; some say their seafood is unparalleled.
Homún is another great place to hide from the heat, as it’s cenote paradise, and now also home to recently opened water park Splash. Cool down at their pools and try an ice-cold Michelada. Arrive early, as capacity is limited.
How about a “quiet” night in Mérida’s Bar Lagarto de Oro, known to be great for drinks and an atmosphere you won’t soon forget. For additional options, check out our pages 20 and 21. FB: El Lagarto de Oro
