Mahahual and the Costa Maya getting Street lights and Mayan Arch Glorieta
With the development of Costa Maya Villas on the north side of the Light house, the palapa restaurant at the base of the light house, and the turn-off to Mahahual on the south, traffic is getting to be a little congested near the light house. The glorieta will feature a traditional Mayan Arch and make it safer in that area. Leading up to the arch are new streetlights also geared to making pedestrian traffic safer. The glorieta and parking area
located at the lighthouse was the vision of Mayan Paradise Properties owner Todd Story and with the help of a few local businesses will be a gift to the local
community of Mahahual.

Photo tour of Mahahual new projects
North of the Light house and South are two very different experiences. If you take a look at the fun beach restaurant and Camping spot El Faro (Spanish for lighthouse) compared with the new and modern Lapis store and handicrafts shops - the difference is night and day. Is there room for both in Mahahual? ABSOLUTELY! If you click to play the YouTube video slide show below, you'll see a lot of new shots of Mahahual and maybe a few you have already seen. Most of the shots were taken on the 21st of January, 2010 early in the morning - so they are up to date!

In the State Museum of Folk Art, all those craftsmen would have greater opportunity to expand their aspirations, business and sales, all that would be displayed once permanently and other publicly traded, he said.

NEWS FROM XCALAK
I am sure you know I have been organizing the Animal Clinic here in Xcalak, there can't have been many of you that didn't get or see my begging letters. Well,we raised approximately $1,500usd in just over a week. I was not sure you could do it with the crisis and Haiti, but you are just amazing people. The call goes out and you all rally Around. (NOTE: clinic in Xcalak to be held Jan 22-23)
Yes it's been cold here too, cold enough that my dogs really didn't want to get up and out of bed in the mornings. Especially Lulu!!
The critters are feeling it too and my garden has become a "Pemex" for butterflies and bees. The bees are using the Humming bird feeders non stop so we have small fights breaking out. The butterflies are really enjoying the Zinnias.
I was given a wonderful present whilst I was visiting my carpenter in Limones, I hope I can keep it happy here in Xcalak. I will endeavor to find out which orchid it is.
I also bought myself this one from the market in Chetumal before Christmas, (my Christmas present to me) and it bloomed a couple of days before the holiday and the blooms are still out now.
Just a quick show off. This plant has been magnificent up to 22 flowers at a time.
