In less than six months, Mexico will play host to not one but two spectacular solar eclipses. On October 14th of this year, we’re gearing up for a remarkable annular solar eclipse that will cast its shadow as a partial eclipse across the country. The iconic “ring of fire”, characteristic of annular eclipses, will grace parts of the Yucatan Peninsula. Specifically within the path of annularity that passes through Campeche, Calakmul, Chetumal, and then ventures further into Central America. But that’s not all – mark your calendars for April 8th, 2024, when a total solar eclipse will steal the spotlight, particularly in the country’s northern regions, including Mazatlán, Durango, Torreón, and Monclova.
Regarding Mexico retirement, there are many enticing destinations to consider. However, one place that stands out as a hidden gem is the Yucatan Peninsula. Specifically, we are talking about Valladolid, one of Yucatan’s most emblematic “magical towns”. With its stunning landscapes, rich cultural heritage, and affordable living, Valladolid has undoubtedly become a magnet for retirees seeking an idyllic retirement destination. In this article, we’ll introduce you to a unique spot that epitomizes the essence of Yucatan living: Xkopek, a beekeeping farm park perfect for your weekend getaway.
