This week…
For ongoing events and classes in Merida,
please click our NEW Ongoing Events Page!!
On the Ongoing Events page, you will find a list of all ongoing classes and other regular events that are repeated every week.
When a new class or ongoing event is announced, it will be highlighted at the top of both events pages, and then will be added to the Ongoing Events page. We hope this makes your planning easier!
As always, if you have an event for the English-speaking community of Merida that you would like to publicize, please contact us at info [at] yucatanliving [dot] com (hopefully at least a week before the event) and we will be happy to add it to our Events pages.
Free movies abound this week. Where else can you see entire series devoted to one director (such as John Ford) or one actor (such as John Wayne). This summer, one of our movie series is a collection of spaghetti westerns. Real movies, simple topics, pretty girls, handsome leading men, boy gets girl – or rides off into the sunset with his horse… either way, a "cool" (air conditioned) way to spend a hot evening in Merida.
If you don’t find a movie you’d like to see, there are some very special concerts and performances being presented this week as well. The Choir of the City is, of course, never to be missed. We also need to spend a little time with the work of our new Director of Artes Escenicas, Salvador Lemis. He is bringing yet another dimension to the performing arts world in Yucatan and we need to give him all the support he deserves. And let’s not forget our lady songsters on Friday night. Merida has a collection of female voices that exists nowhere else in the world! All in all, there’s something for everyone in Merida this week. We hope everyone finds that perfect evening to enjoy.

Fiestas
Sinanche: July 14
Sinache is the municipality just to the east of Telchac. On July 14, Sinache holds a celebration for San Buenaventura, patrono de la poblacion. San Cristano is in Sinache and is the best place we know for taking a tour of a mangrove. If you’re looking for a cool place on a hot day, San Cristano’s mangrove is the place to be. These tours cost $30 pesos and the number to call for reservations is 926-0236.
Hoctun: 3 Week Event
Tuesday, July 15, through Wednesday, August 6
Hoctun is not very far southeast of Merida, just off of Hwy. 180 (see map here). This particular festival is in honor of Santo Cristo de la Transfiguracion. Hoctun is a lovely area, one of the kinds of places that gets billed as having "small town living at its best." Just 30 minutes from Merida, but a little bit off the beaten path, our readers know Hoctun as the home town of one of our favorite Yucatan Living cheerleaders – Ginny (Peregrina). If you haven’t visited the cemetery in Hoctun, take a look at our picture and you’ll see why.
