The Carnaval (Mardi Gras) is here! From February 15 – 22 join the celebrations and enjoy the parades, costumes, and concerts. Check out the complete lineup at: www.merida.gob.mx/carnaval/
This February 22 is the beginning of Lent. Whether you are religious or not, take advantage and try the best Yucatecan meatless dishes that are made especially during this period. Try brazo de reina, papazules, or a good fish Tikin Xik.
Our Yucatecan “winter” is coming to an end which means that we can finally camp on the beach. For example, the Chabihau Palapitas have a camping area, volleyball court, and are pet friendly! Visit them FB: Palapitas Chabihau.
Make the most of your trip to Valladolid and visit the Community Museum Xpeten Áak en Yaxch’r. Here you will learn about traditional medicine, medicinal plants, and the local fauna. Call to make an appointment and they will accommodate you. Tel. 985 120 3456
Xpeten Áak is not the only community museum in Yucatán; there are 12 others that are all curated and lovingly maintained. Their histories and content are surprising; check the map in FB: REDMY
You cannot visit Yucatán without checking out Mérida at night. Explore the main avenue, the Paseo de Montejo, or if you prefer a different scene, check out the bars: La Negrita, Trópico 56, and La Mezcalería are a few names to remember.
