English, the official language of our club, is spoken with many accents and varying degrees of proficiency. We welcome you to visit one of our events.
Our goals are Friendship, Community Service, and Self-Improvement. While achieving these goals, we provide an oasis from the larger world as well as a gateway into the local community. Click on the photos above to learn more.
We are a community of supportive women with diverse backgrounds and experiences who are anxious to show you how the unique opportunities of the Yucatan can enrich your life.
Since some of our members don’t live here year-round, we keep in touch wherever we are through these web pages, our online newsletter, and weekly email bulletins.
Our dues are $250 pesos per year. We welcome new members, whether here for a season or a lifetime.
