About Us

Founded in 1984 by just a few English-speaking women, our membership has grown to represent numerous nationalities, including many Yucatecans.

English is the official language of the club and is spoken with many accents and varying degrees of proficiency. We welcome you to visit one of our events.

Our goals are FriendshipCommunity 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.

We are a community of supportive women with diverse backgrounds and experiences who are anxious to show you how the unique opportunities of the Yucatán 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, Facebook, and weekly email bulletins.
