Mexico Protects Beaches For Public Use


Cancún has the first; more to follow in other beach destinations. While all Mexican beaches are public most beachfront-built infrastructure caters to paying customers. But federal tourism authorities intend to turn the tables by creating public beach parks to further enhance the enjoyment of residents and visitors.

The first such facility opened to the public in December in Cancún, Quintana Roo. Since then, the 15.5-million-peso (US $750,000) Maya Langosta Public Park and its 135-meter-long beach extending over 7,000 square meters has received on average 2,000 visitors a week.

How to Grow Veggies in the Desert?

Desert Gardening
by Lowe's Creative Ideas / Lowe’s Desert region gardening expert Scott Calhoun

Growing fresh, organic produce for your family in your backyard is one of the most rewarding aspects of gardening. It is also surprisingly easy — much simpler than you might think — in desert climates. In the little 4x8-ft plot my wife and I tend, we supply nearly all the produce for our small family from November to April. Below I discuss how to start your veggie garden, and a few strategies for dealing with desert conditions.

Choose a Sunny Spot
It might seem counterintuitive where we have such a surfeit of sunshine, but even here, veggie gardens need pretty much all-day sun. A spot where the winter (southern) sun shines for at least 6 hours is good. A little late-afternoon shade (an eastern exposure) also works well, as long as the site gets the winter sun. Avoid planting a veggie garden under a tree or next to a tall evergreen hedge.

The Battle of Puebla took place on 5 May 1862, The Mexican victory is celebrated yearly on the fifth of May. Its celebration is regional in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla, where the holiday is celebrated as El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla). Although this holiday remains very popular in the United States where it is celebrated yearly as Cinco de Mayo.
