We all know the culinary term farm to table, or the sustainable food term, buy local, but we hope that you start adopting Hive to Table when on vacation in the Riviera Maya. Mayan families are great cultivators of honey from a local stingless bee called the Melipona. Honey production has a long history in Tulum, and today is helping to build family businesses.

We have become addicted to Mexican baseball. Yup that’s right Mexican baseball. Who would have thunk? Friends of ours who live in Cancun asked us if we wanted to come up for a game.

For Minor League Baseball, I have to say, there are some great players and the games are really good.

The medicine man of the Maya is the Shaman, a practiced alternative medicine used for many different ailments by both young and old.
