Events: Las Mayas Internacional

This Week… starting June 22, 2009

Fiestas This Week

Yucatan Living Suma de Hidalgo - One Day Event -
June 22
This fiesta is in honor of San Bartolomé. Suma is very close to Merida, right between Teya and Motul. This is the beginning of horse country in Yucatan, so the most common product of the artisans in this area is leatherwork.

Yucatan Living Xocchel Fiesta – Six Day EventXocchel FiestaJune 24 through June 29 each year
This is the annual Xocchel Fiesta that honors San Juan Bautista, patron saint of the Municipality of Xocchel. If you are looking for a municipality that is off the beaten path – but the beaten path is still nearby - Xocchel should be your destination of choice. This small municipality lies less than an hour southeast of the City of Merida, on the road to Valladolid, and the 21st century has not quite made it there. To see a great map, plus pictures of the area and towns in Xocchel, click on Bicycle Yucatan, our favorite traveling the back roads of Yucatan website.

Yucatan Living Panabá Fiesta - Five Day EventJune 26 through June 30
This is Panabá’s annual fiesta honoring San Pedro and San Pablo. Panabá is just inland to the southeast of San Felipe and Rio Lagartos. Almost everyone there is involved in either fishing or the cattle industry, or both. Languages spoken in Panabá include Mayan and Zapoteco. Look for good food at even the most humble establishment here!
