Up & Down the Coast

It's just about summer. In Charleston, where we are, our summer is a little later than usual. Summer season in the Riviera Maya, meanwhile, has started out wet. Here's hoping that the weather gets back on track and that we all have a wonderful and hurricane/tornado-free season.

On a far more somber note, retired Vancouver, Canada, police officer and animal lover Lynn Earle was slain. We are sorry; we want to honor the work she did for the animals in the Riviera Maya. Condolences!

What's New

Reflected in this schedule is a week-by-week look at what Yoga en Akumal is planning. The website will stay current, so please check there for the most accurate class schedules

A reminder, for those of you who love Akumal, is that The Akumalian is the best way to keep up on comings, goings, and lots of information about happenings.
