March brings a swift change to our client base and visitors.  Our visitors from Canada and the United States for the most part are leaving before Semana Santa or Easter Week begins on Sunday the 11th of April.

Semana Santa is a big Holiday in Mexico with Students and many workers having time off and of course they leave the inland cities and head for the Beach!

Each Semana Santa and the week afterwords, which is called Semana Pasqua our beach towns are full to 100% occupancy and there is a party or gathering everywhere you look.

So let the party begin!

The 3 Annual Chili Cook off is set for March 8th in Lo de Marcos.

This Annual Fundraising event held this Sunday, March 8th,, in Lo de Marcos has created a tremendous sense of Community in the Pueblo!

The chili tasting, activities and entertainment, blend seamlessly to create the perfect afternoon.

From 3.00 until 7.00, you are invited to join in the fun and support local children going to CIENI Language School to learn English as a second language.

Each year this events line-up just gets better.

From 4.00 to 6.00 PM, during the Chili Tasting, the entertainment is the talented Trio, known as  Caravane from San Pancho, who will take us on a magical, musical journey.
