I love traveling around Mexico and discovering the country’s rich culture, history, nature, food, and people. (Note: I have a related post on the pros and cons of living in Merida and why I love living in Mexico).
Even though living in the Yucatan can be frustrating at times, I am glad I settled here after traveling around the world for 8 years. I love the rich culture,, relaxed yet respectful people, and the fascinating history, food, and culture.. I know you will too, especially if you take a bit of time to get to kno0w more about the region through the Yucatecan Culture Workshop. (I also recommend that you consider taking our longer and more intensive Living and Traveling in Mexico culture, too).
I love Yucatecan food and look forward to sharing a delicious meal prepared by my friend Juan Carlos, a great cook in my beautiful house, the Casa Los Dos Gallos.
Come join Juan Carlos Cab, my business and personal cook, and I for a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn about Yucatecan society and eat a rustic meal with us at the beautiful Casa Los Dos Gallos in Merida.

The last year (Summer 2020-Summer 2021) has been very eventful. I have developed some essential friendships, improved my health, and really settled down into my new life as an expat in Merida.
In March 2020, I decided to live full-time as an expat in Merida, Mexico. It was not an easy decision. I spent 2011 to 2015 as a full-time traveler. From 2015 to March 2020, I lived part-time in Merida and Montreal and also traveled three to four months a year. Right when I was excited about becoming a full-time expat, the Coronavirus pandemic happened and changed my plans even more.
