Yucatán at Home is hot off the presses.

The full-color glossy focuses on how we live in Yucatán. The debut issue features Monica Petrus on the cover and a story about how she made her move from Los Angeles a triumph that even she hadn’t imagined.

Stories are presented in both English and Spanish, and are aimed at newcomers seeking information and inspiration.

The premiere issue also features a historic renovation in Progreso, Yucatán’s beach community. And we visit a couple in the Centro that designed a home for both to delve into their creative pursuits. And then we learn from a man from Alaska about how he built a private retreat that’s very much off the grid.

Yucatán at Home is distributed free to selected hotels and restaurants in Yucatán. In the Centro, copies will be available at Flamante Burgers & Friends in Santa Ana on Calle 64 and 47, as well as Between the Lines, the bookstore in Santa Lucia on 53 and 62.
