The Women of México Today

Posted by: | 1 Comment

As most of you know, I’ve been hired as a Community Manager and Ambassador for the México Today campaign. I´ve gushed enough already (here and here) about how I couldn´t ask for a better partnership, but I haven´t gushed enough about the other women ambassadors I have the privilege of sharing this space with. Today, I want to introduce you to them (yes, there are 12 male ambassadors as well and we´ll feature them soon), not only because I thinkRead More ...

Summer Trip to Costa Rica: The Best Way to Experience Culture & Family

Posted by: | 2 Comments

I’m sitting here writing this post from my mother’s home in Costa Rica, on what is our third annual summer trip here. Our plan is to keep coming for one month every year, and I’ve been curious to see what changes I might see year to year as my children get older. Yet, as I reread the post I wrote this time last year I had to laugh because everything I wrote then applies this year, too — I almostRead More ...

MOnte Alban, Oaxaca, mexico, tour

If one thing makes México special (and pointing out just one doesn´t ever make it justice), it is the vast amount of ruins from various ancient–and very advanced–civilizations that exist throughout the country.  Every single one of these archaeological sites, be it Mayan, Aztec, Olmec, Zapotec or other, uncover mysteries that give us just tiny clues to understand the way these people lived, celebrated, adored, communicated, calculated and sustained themselves. During my recent travel as a Mexico Today ambassador toRead More ...

Posted by: | 7 Comments

  Editor’s note: This is Part 4 in a continuing series by Amy Conroy. To read the other parts, go here. I have never lived in such a celebratory environment in my life – the ‘fiesta culture’ here never stops! There are citywide parades and festivals all the time, fiestas and social gatherings for every reason, and childrens’ birthday parties that joyfully extend well past bedtimes. Fireworks are an everyday all-the-time occurrence, which is not easy to imagine until youRead More ...

I haven´t been this excited about sharing news in a while.  And that´s a huge statement considering the last two and a half years since Roxana and I launched SpanglishBaby have been blessed with partnerships, opportunities and a community that went beyond our expectations. A month ago I received a phone call that I know will be life-changing:  I was invited to be one of 24 Ambassadors for the México Today Program–a public and private initiative which is officially launchingRead More ...

Wordless Wednesday | Muir Woods: Bosque de Gigantes

MuirWoods

Have you ever been here? It’s one of the most wondrous places on earth and only a stone’s throw away from the magnificent San Francisco. My husband and I were there this past weekend and I was giddy as we walked into the park because I remembered how as a child growing up in Peru, I used to stare at images of Muir Woods in my fire engine red View Master (remember those?) and dream about admiring these GIGANTES inRead More ...

List of Spanish Language Learning Summer Camps

Posted by: | 23 Comments

Yesterday we talked about how important it is to keep your child’s mind active over the summer months. While there are many ways that you can keep kids busy right at home – one popular option is summer camp. Summer camps range from free and inexpensive to costly; some are sleep away camps and others are day or half-day camps. You can choose a local camp or one as far away as Costa Rica or Spain. To keep your bilingualRead More ...

My Bebita’s First Cultural Travel Adventure

Posted by: | 4 Comments

Anyone that gets to know my little girl will notice that she is very observant. Yes, even at the tender age of eleven months the girl soaks up her surroundings before taking the plunge to interact. To watch her reactions on our first family vacation was, as cliché as this may sound, priceless! There are numerous stories about my time in Miami that replay in my mind each time I am about to visit the vibrant, colorful, Latino city! TheRead More ...
