Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead

November 1-2, 2013

Day of the Dead, 'Dia de los Muertos' is celebrated near the popular holiday Halloween, so the two are often associated. But the Day of the Dead is very different from Halloween and not creepy like the name may suggest. Mexicans celebrate on November 1st and 2nd for their loved ones that have passed. Alters are set up in homes and are filled with flowers, and favorite foods of the loved ones and the entire family and friends join in the celebration. There is a tradition of the "Bread of the Dead" it is a sweet bread flavored with vanilla and orange and is normally served with hot chocolate. Cozumel offers a unique way of celebrating the Day of the Dead with folkloric dances, painted faces with the sugar skull , and head dresses!

 

 

“COZUMEL AQUARIUM”     THE WORLD`S BIGGEST OF ITS KIND

By: Randay Cruz

With an investment of 50 million dollars, approximately in a month will began the construction of the “Cozumel Aquarium”, which is part of the innovation of services that are require to reactivate the economy of the Island.

This project is inspired by the businessman Joaquin Haces Calvo who declares that to guarantee this proyect  as a secure one and protecting the environment they will hire the Centro de Investigacion y Estudios Avanzados of the IPN (CINVESTAV) and Heery International (whom design, build and manage the project of the Georgia Acuarium).

The Director of the Administracion Integral Municipal (APIM) Carlos Angulo López, explains that in August they signed the beginning contract of the Project Cozumel Aquarium, which will be the biggest in the world with the Real Estate Company LASOL and CSHS International.

The land is located in the area of the APIM, that adjoins to the International Cruiseships Pier “Puerta Maya”, in an area of Federal Marine Zone of 17,432.09 square meters, in addition to an exclusive area of 90,834.50 square meters of sea.

This will be the first submarine Aquarium in the world with a capacity of one million of square meters of water, in which will have more than 500 marine life between dolphins, whale shark, stingrays and a big variety of fishes.

The Project of Cozumel Aquarium is considering the installation of 100 sculptures in human scale and 3 underwater pyramids with a diameter of 40 square meters by 8 meters high of artificial reefs.

Angulo López says that in the Federal Zone the Biggest Aquarium of the world will be a Souvenir store of its own products not affecting the commercial sector of the Island.

PROPOSED 2014 TAX LAW

The Mexican government has proposed an increase in VAT (Mexican sales tax) from 11% to 16% in the border areas to match with the rest of Mexico. The tax, IF APPROVED WOULD GO into effect January 2014. Last month we reported the possibility that they were going to put this tax on real estate purchases, but THEY VOTED AGAINST THIS SO THERE WILL BE NO SALES TAX ON A REAL ESTATE PURCHASE AT ALL. There are other taxes that are on the table for discussion in the chambers of deputies and the Senate. The Senators have not yet approved the tax rate increase in border areas, so we are waiting and hoping that they will not approve it.

If you are planning on being on the island for thanksgiving, many of the local restaurants prepare a traditional thanksgiving meal of turkey and dressing.

Break in the Weather provides for the October Trashy Little Event

After 2 solid days of rain, we were a bit skeptical the Trashy Event was going to happen for October. As luck would have it, (or perhaps our very own Goddess Ixchel intervened for us) we woke to blue skies and renewed vigor to head out and clean a sad stretch of beach near the entrance to the landfill on the eastern shore. The before photos are a very sad reminder of how much plastic is floating in our oceans and polluting everything it touches. Cozumel's beaches are a national, and indeed worldwide treasure. Its very sobering to walk these areas seeing firsthand the blight of so much "convenience" plastic blanketing over such raw beauty. But on October 27th the Trashy Group, joined by our good friends from the Turtle Protection Brigade, launched a rapid rescue of this stretch of beach. In no time the group gathered up 47 bags of unsightly rubbish and left this area as pristine and gorgeous as nature intended. We like to think Ixchel would be smiling at the sight. I know on that sunny morning we all were grinning ear to ear.

Can't make it to an event but want to help? There are many ways to join the effort to reduce plastic waste here in Cozumel or wherever you may be. Recycling is great, but reducing is by far the better first step. Here in Cozumel there are refillable soft drink bottles still available at the Servi Fresco located far south on 65. There are also at least 2 great places to refill all your cleaning products here on the island. Check out Cozuclean on 65 and Adolfo Rosada Salas, or Bioclean located near the corner of Xel Ha (that's 15 sur), and 30th. There are also countless places to buy beer in returnable bottles. If you think about how much effort it takes to buy these items in disposable containers, then haul them home, then haul out your recycling, then go back to the store for more - you figure out that's its actually much more convenient and in most cases far less expensive, to pick up these items from refillable vendors. My recycling is down to almost nothing since I have switched to all refillables - including my refillable BPA free water bottle. Reducing is by far the best environmentally friendly policy there is. And what do I use to haul my items home with me? A stronger more spacious reusable shopping bag of course! Try some of these suggestions for a while and see what you think - you'll be hooked on reducing!

As always special thanks go out to our Sponsors who generously provide gift certificates for events each and every month:

Buccanos*Cariloha and Del Sol shops* Cozumel Bar Hop *Guidos Restaurante*La Choza
La Hach* Papa Hogs Hogtown Cafe * Prima Trattoria *Señor Frogs


Right now we are at 680 bags. We'll need all the help we can get to make it to our 1000 bag goal by December 31st. The next Trashy Event will be Sunday November 24th at 9am. Stay tuned to the Trashy Little Group on facebook for upcoming location details - and remember you can pick up a bag anytime, just let us know and we'll add it to the 2013 bag counter.
