The art of walking
By Jade Arroyo
What better way to regain energy, relax and chat a little, than to grab a delicious cup of coffee. Cumpanio (Correo esq Recreo)serves the famous Illy coffee in all the different styles. You can pair it with a tasty freshly baked pastry or cookie.
To see art, we recommend the exhibition “Chatarra” (Junk) by artist Mario Cabrera. At La Nave Art Lab inside Art Print Photo Gallery. In this exhibition, his most recent series of painting and sculpture, he manifests a metamorphosis of man depicted in assemblages of painted scraps, shreds of canvas, and “junk” in general. An interesting show.
Going down the street, you will find the store Camino Silvestre Casa (Correo 43). Here you can get all kinds of home accessories, items that are unique and are full of personality. The shop follows a theme of birds and nature, featuring botanical designs and soft colors. A gorgeous shop.
A nice place to have lunch is La Casa del Diezmo (Jesús 36). This restaurant is housed inside an old beautiful colonial house, featuring an inner courtyard with profuse trees and vegetation. The food here is something else: Traditional Yucatecan (along with international dishes), spicy and completely delicious, is a good opportunity to try something new.
When the night falls, the city reveals a different face. The Berlin Bar (Umaran 19, one block going down from the Parroquia) has very hip atmosphere, with good music and tasty tapas. If you feel like talking and meet some new people, sit at the bar: surely more than one person will start a conversation and you will spend a good time.
