Travel is not always about the destination. It’s the company you keep. If you can find people to share with, engage and play with, to indulge, laugh and escape with, that is as good as it gets. To farm cooked meals from Indian night to hot dogs, card games, a table of books, and naps on a hammock, to walks in the dark, fires in the summer, and hiding out in greens and blues. This is the best week of every year.

The stretch of the eastern Yucatan Peninsula houses the UNESCO World Heritage Site Sian Ka’an – 1.3 million acres of green. It’s a strip of paradise surrounded by wildlife, with hiking, diving, kayaking, and thousands of magical cenotes to explore and swim in. Stay beachside in the biosphere reserve at CESiaK, visit the ruins of Tulum, get delicious local meals, lots of fresh fruit smoothies, and yoga every morning. This is, as the Mayans deemed, where the sky was born.
