Summer is here, can you feel the humidity yet? Stay cool and hydrated.
mangoAll over San Pancho the mango trees are filled with ripe fruits. Did you know that mangos are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They also contain an enzyme with stomach soothing properties similiar to papain found in papayas. Everyone loves mango smoothies, margartitas, salsa or just by itself, mmmmmmm

Kimberly King is a community website for the village of SanPancho, Nayarit, Mexico 

The actress visited Riviera Nayarit to offer a bachelorette party for her Best Friend in Punta Mita. "Not too shaby!", she said.


Kirsten Dunst,  who starred in Spider Man among many other movies, visited Riviera Nayarit to offer her best friend since childhood and frequent red carpet companion Molly, a bachelorette party.


"Being a maid-of-honor... not to shabby!"  she twetted, along with photos of her stay in St Regis Punta Mita, as revealed by one of the retweets by a Punta Mita official account.


During the three day party girls enjoyed  yoga on the beach, champagne dinners, a special BBQ on the terrace of their presidential suite, custom massages and being serenaded to live music from a Mexican quartet, published E! On line last Tuesday June 5.


In the past few months, Riviera Nayarit has become one of the preferred destinations for celebrities, with the visit of important personalities like Thierry Henry, Kate Hudson, Felicity Huffman, Gerry Lopez , Kim and  Kourtney Kardashian, Lady Gaga, Courteney Cox, Charlie Sheen, Mario Lopez, Sofia Vergara, among many others.


The work being made by the Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) of Riviera Nayarit is evident through direct communications like the one made by Dunst in the social networks, which help position our destination as one of the best worldwide, and will highlight the importance of improving visitors' experiences for hotels, restaurants, government, service providers and the society in general.
La actriz visitó la Riviera Nayarit para ofrecer una despedida de soltera de su mejor amiga en Punta Mita. "No muy desvencijado", dijo.
Kirsten Dunst, protagonista de Spider Man, entre muchas otras películas, visitó la Riviera Nayarit para ofrecer su mejor amigo desde la infancia y la roja alfombra frecuente compañero de Molly, una despedida de soltera. 
"Ser una dama de honor ... no mal! "twetted ella, junto con fotos de su estancia en St Regis Punta Mita, como revela uno de los retweets de una cuenta oficial de Punta Mita. 
Durante los tres días del partido las chicas disfrutaron de yoga en la playa, cenas de champán, un especial de barbacoa en la terraza de su suite presidencial, masajes personalizados y una serenata con música en vivo de un cuarteto de México, publicó E! En la línea el pasado martes 5 de junio.

El trabajo que está realizando la Oficina de Visitantes y Convenciones (OVC) de Riviera Nayarit es evidente a través de comunicaciones directas, como la realizada por Dunst en las redes sociales, que ayudan a la posición de nuestro destino como uno de los mejores en todo el mundo, y pondrá de relieve la importancia de mejorar las experiencias de los visitantes de hoteles, restaurantes, gobierno, proveedores de servicios y la sociedad en general.
New "No Pets In Cabin" Policy Could 
Change the Way We Travel to Mexico

Many foreigners bring their beloved pets with them to Mexico each winter. Unfortunately, the new "no pets in cabin" policy recently put into place by several airlines could drastically change the way we all travel to and from Mexico.

Taco the Dog (shown above) always hangs out in our suitcase
so we don't forget to bring him to Mexico with us!

The airline agents we spoke with say that they are obeying an old Mexican government regulation that is based on laws dating back to 1950, 2004 and 2007. The SAGARPA and SENASICA offices in Mexico City informed us that it was a new international aviation law. There is also plenty of speculation by online sources that say that the airlines want to cash in by requiring pets to travel in cargo, which costs more than in-cabin pets. Either way, it seems the blame game is going in circles here.

After searching the net for hours, speaking to several airlines including the International Airport in Mexico City, SAGARPA and SENASICA, our local Mexican consulate, the Humane Society International, as well as emailing back and forth with three Mexican rescue organizations, we could still not find anyone who had (or had seen) a copy of this new policy in writing. Even theSENASICA (Mexico's National Health Service for Food Safety and Food Quality) website, which was updated in April, states that pets are allowed to travel to Mexico from the US and Canada. This raises the question, who really did decide to implement this rule and why?

Regardless, people need to be aware that the majority of airlines now prohibit pets from flying in-cabin. Here is the breakdown:

Airlines that no longer allow in-cabin pets:

  • Alaska
  • American
  • Delta
  • United
  • US Airways

Airlines that still allow in-cabin pets:
(as of the publication date of this article)

  • Air Canada - $100 CAD each way
  • Frontier - $75 USD each way
  • WestJet - $50 CAD/USD each way

Airlines that allow pets in cargo:
Keep in mind that many of these airlines enforce embargo dates due to hot weather and have special restrictions based on breed, kennel size, weight, etc., so be sure to check with your airline for specific requirements.  

  • Air Canada - $270 CAD/USD per direction
  • Alaska - $100 USD each way
  • American - $175 USD per kennel
  • Delta - $200 USD one-way
  • Frontier - $150 USD each way
  • United - $189-679 USD each way (prices are based on weight)
  • US Airways - Not allowed as of March 1, 2012
  • WestJet - $50 CAD/USD each way

So if you are planning to travel to or from Mexico, be sure to contact your airline before you head to the airport. You might also want to consider driving instead of flying so you don't have to leave Fido, Taco and Panchito behind.

A Jungle Cacophony

Have you noticed the plethora of life in San Pancho right now? As spring turns to summer here in the jungle I'm in awe at the buzz of activity. I have to admit that I'm not really part of the buzz, I'm actually quite content to sit in my hammock and observe.  The heat and humidity slow my body down to a crawl and it's just as well because there is just so much to look at and listen to!  From my jungle perch my gaze darts from one intriguing phenomenon to the next, desperately trying to take it all in.  

A gecko approaches me and pauses for a moment before inflating a big and bright orange pouch at his throat.  The inflated pouch is nearly as big as his entire body and I can see him struggling to hold his head up. I look around to see if any other geckos are watching this display and see none in sight.  I raise my eyebrows. Is he doing this to impress me? If so, I'm definitely impressed but I have to say that I don't think that I'm his type. 

I'm then distracted by the butterfly tree.  I could spend hours watching this tree. I've yet to determine what kind of tree it is, but I bet that if the butterflies could speak they would tell me with enthusiasm.   Butterflies of every size color and shape flock to this tree, apparently enjoying its succulent blossoms.  At any one moment I can spot at least a dozen butterflies hovering around the tree.  The occasional hummingbird also comes by to really sweeten the show. 

I hear a crashing in the palm above and look up to spot a squirrel flying through the air with another squirrel right on its tail. They dart easily from one palm frond to the next and then launch themselves between the trees.  I am truly amazed at their agility and ease as they literally fly through the trees.  The squirrel in the lead takes to a palm tree trunk and begins spiraling its way down the trunk, staying just out of its pursuer's grasp.   Finally they reach a stale mate, each squirrel is on either side of the tree.  I watch for a moment, eager to see who the winner will be . . . 

Suddenly the jungle noises are interrupted as a Mexican voice bursts with romantic song.  A deep male voice fills the air, singing a woeful tale in Spanish that I have to admit I don't understand at all but I thoroughly enjoy anyhow!  I remember that the first time I heard a romantic outburst like this I was in shock, you simply don't hear men the USA singing sappy love songs at the top of their voice.  

It is definitely a happy time here in the jungle and as I prepare to return to Colorado I know that I will miss this magical place.  There is something about the energy of the jungle and the community of San Pancho that is so unique.  We are so lucky to have such a beautiful balance of natural beauty and caring community here. As a holistic nutrition coach I know that community and the natural world are huge parts of my personal nourishment equation.  Curious to know more about holistic nutrition?

¿Ha notado la gran cantidad de vida en San Pancho en este momento? Cuando la primavera se convierte en el verano aquí en la selva estoy en el temor a los rumores de la actividad. Tengo que admitir que no soy realmente parte de los rumores, estoy realmente muy contenta con sentarse en la hamaca y observar. El calor y la humedad frenar mi cuerpo a paso de tortuga y es igual de bien, porque hay tantas cosas para ver y escuchar! Desde mi selva posan mis flechas mirada de un extraño fenómeno a otro, tratando desesperadamente de tener todo adentro Un gecko se me acerca y se detiene un momento antes de inflar una bolsa de color naranja grande y brillante en su garganta. La bolsa de inflado es casi tan grande como todo su cuerpo y yo lo veo luchando por mantener la cabeza levantada. Miro a mi alrededor para ver si hay otros geckos son asistir a este espectáculo y vea nadie a la vista. Alzo las cejas. ¿Está haciendo esto para impresionarme? Si es así, definitivamente estoy impresionado, pero tengo que decir que no creo que yo soy su tipo. Estoy a continuación, distraído por el árbol de la mariposa. Podría pasar horas viendo este árbol. Todavía tengo que determinar qué clase de árbol es, pero apuesto a que si las mariposas podía hablar me decían con entusiasmo. Las mariposas de todos los colores tamaño y la forma acuden a este árbol, aparentemente disfrutando de sus flores suculentas. En cualquier momento que puedo detectar por lo menos una docena de mariposas revoloteando alrededor del árbol. El colibrí también se trata de vez en cuando por la realidad de endulzar el espectáculo. Oigo un ruido en la palma arriba y mirar hacia arriba para detectar una ardilla voladora en el aire con otra ardilla a la derecha en la cola. Los dardos fácilmente de hoja de palma a la siguiente y luego se lanzan entre los árboles. Estoy realmente sorprendido por su agilidad y facilidad, ya que, literalmente, volar a través de los árboles. La ardilla en la cabeza lleva un tronco de palmera y comienza su camino en espiral por el tronco, manteniéndose justo fuera del alcance de su perseguidor. Finalmente alcanzan un compañero rancio, cada ardilla está en cada lado del árbol. Miro por un momento, ansioso por ver quién será el ganador. . . De repente, los ruidos de la selva se interrumpió, como se rompe una voz mexicana con la canción romántica. Una voz masculina profunda llena el aire, cantando una historia lamentable en español que tengo que admitir que no entiendo en absoluto, pero disfruto mucho de todos modos! Recuerdo que la primera vez que escuché un estallido romántico como este yo estaba en shock, simplemente no escuchan los hombres los Estados Unidos cantando canciones de amor llenas de savia en la parte superior de su voz. En definitiva, es un momento feliz aquí en la selva y mientras me preparo para volver a Colorado sé que voy a extrañar este lugar mágico. Hay algo acerca de la energía de la selva y de la comunidad de San Pancho, que es tan único. Somos tan afortunados de tener un hermoso balance de la belleza natural y la comunidad que se preocupa aquí. Como entrenador de la nutrición holística sé que la comunidad y el mundo natural son parte importante de mi ecuación de alimentación personal.
