Two American tourists were attacked by a crocodile at a popular resort in Mexico when one went for a nighttime ocean swim and the other followed him into the water to help.

The civil defense office in the western state of Jalisco said on Wednesday the first American, 24, was bitten in the legs, arm, abdomen and chest in the resort town of Puerto Vallarta , New York Post reports.

The victim’s 30-year-old companion tried to save him from the reptile’s jaws and was bitten on the hand.

The office said both men received first aid at the scene at Bocanegra Beach and were later taken to hospital for further treatment of their injuries, which did not appear to be life-threatening.

Although multiple reports say the mutilated men were from Colorado, the local Spanish-language news site Noticias PV identified them as Daniel and Joss, both from Illinois. No last name was given.

Crocodiles are not uncommon in the coastal wetlands and shores of the resort town of Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific coast.

In the United States, there have been three fatal attacks by alligators – a reptile similar in appearance to the crocodile – this year.

Just over a week ago, an elderly woman lost her life after falling into a pond at a Florida golf course near her home.

Last month a South Carolina man was fatally attacked while standing near a retention pond and in late May a man was killed while searching for frisbees in a Florida lake.

Alligators have been found in increasingly unlikely places across the country this year, including a Midland County RV park.

Midland County sits in the middle of the West Texas desert, far from where alligators usually hang out.

At this Mexican resort, getting drunk is part of the wellness program https://mexico-virtual.com/at-this-mexican-resort-getting-drunk-is-part-of-the-wellness-program/ Fri, 08 Jul 2022 17:12:46 +0000 https://mexico-virtual.com/at-this-mexican-resort-getting-drunk-is-part-of-the-wellness-program/ (Bloomberg) – Lisa Harper would like you to know that in a post-pandemic world, where you only live once, rejecting mezcalitas and cheladas in an effort to induce a hangover and then cure it with tacos barbacoa falls squarely within the definition of holistic wellness. “When I talk about wellness, I’m not talking about deprivation […]]]>

(Bloomberg) – Lisa Harper would like you to know that in a post-pandemic world, where you only live once, rejecting mezcalitas and cheladas in an effort to induce a hangover and then cure it with tacos barbacoa falls squarely within the definition of holistic wellness.

“When I talk about wellness, I’m not talking about deprivation or hard work,” says Harper, the former CEO of retail brands as varied as Gymboree and Hot Topic, and current CEO of Belk, the department based in North Carolina. store company with some 300 stores in the United States. “I talk about it in terms of experiences that provide that much-needed mental and creative reset,” she says.


Getting drunk in Mexico? It can do it.

Harper first landed in the cluster of fishing towns surrounding Todos Santos in the mid-1990s, determined to cure herself of burnout by temporarily settling into a humble palapa (beach hut) while seeking a creative revitalization. She was so inspired by the culture and the land – its physical beauty, the food and, yes, the drink – that she decided to buy a small plot of land there. She returned home determined to turn it into a lavish wellness retreat called Rancho Pescadero, which she then designed herself. It opened with 12 rooms in 2009 and quickly developed a loyal following.

Now the resort is set to emerge in September from a four-year renovation that makes it an all-new property, with 103 beachfront suites on 30 acres and an intentionally indulgent approach to wellness, making Harper something of a anti Gwyneth Paltrow. Instead of cutting out booze and focusing on detox diets and boot camp classes, the hotel combines a 25,000-square-foot “wellness lodge” with activities that connect guests with traditions generations-old locals (think cocoa ceremonies and apothecary sessions that make personalized use of the expansive medicinal herb garden).

Nothing is more emblematic of this unique approach to wellness than the Hangover experience – not something you’ll find at a typical spa retreat, but a cornerstone of the resort’s new programming. It will not only focus on the drink, but also on a dish Mexicans use as a hangover cure, cochinita pibil, and all the ways its preparation and consumption can have a restorative effect. According to Harper, the ceremonial process of cooking barbacoa, from wrapping the lamb in banana leaves to how it is lowered into an underground hearth for a slow roast overnight, was considered by the ancients Mayas as a way to commune with the Earth – and healing the heart and mind.

But at Rancho Pescadero, learning how to make the dish won’t be as easy as signing up for a cooking class. (After all, argues Harper, you can’t replicate this recipe exactly in your own kitchen at home, so what’s the point?) While guests can participate in the cooking process, they’ll do so primarily by picking chili peppers and turning them over. in salsa and accompanying sauces. They will also be able to prepare tinctures to combine with the next day’s hangover cure using some of the aforementioned medicinal herbs, make tortillas by hand using a traditional comal oven and tell stories or listen to music. music around a common fire. All of these activities play with ideas of manual labor, engagement with Mexican culture, and building community, cornerstones of mental well-being.

“The idea is that you engage in rituals,” says Harper. “We want people to feel like they’re living life but also participating in something that carries a historical legacy and feels, for lack of a better word, authentic,” she says. “You form a community with new people, discover drinks and foods you may never have heard of before, and deal with yourself in a whole different way.”

Getting drunk is, of course, built into the premise, even if it’s done on purpose. The open bar portion of the experience includes lesser-known traditional drinks like pulque, which mixes agave sap with fermented pineapple peel. A cultural ambassador will be on hand to incorporate elements of indigenous and historical significance, such as why pulque was considered sacred by the ancestors of many locals.

And although the cooking and drinking takes place in the evening, the eating really takes place the next morning, after the alcohol damage has been done. “We’ll be waking up the guests at a deliberate hour, somewhere after nine,” Harper said. “We will kindly come to their room with the very first phase of their cure, which will be one of the tinctures [made the night before], or something that would help them rise to the occasion. And then, she says, they’ll be escorted to the hotel’s restaurant, where a cochinita unveiling ceremony takes place around a generous communal table.

“Of course, we plan to end it all with more booze,” laughs Harper, adding that the experience will bond with strangers or also serve as really effective team building at corporate retreats. “The bartender is like our hotel doctor, they know exactly what to serve to make you feel better and not worse.”

A victim wanted by Interpol; 3rd person found injured

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Two Canadians — one of them wanted by Interpol — have been found dead of stab wounds in Playa del Carmen, a Mexican resort on the Caribbean coast, the prosecutor’s office said Tuesday. the state.

Prosecutors in the state of Quintana Roo, which is also home to resorts like Cancun and Tulum, said the man and woman were found dead Monday at a hotel or condominium in the beleaguered resort, and that a third person was reportedly injured.

There was no immediate information about their names or hometowns. “Global Affairs Canada is aware of the deaths of two Canadian citizens in Mexico,” the ministry said in a statement.

But prosecutors confirmed the male victim was on an Interpol wanted list for fraud.

Playa del Carmen has been hit by several cases of violence involving foreigners, most recently in January, when two Canadians were killed at a local resort, apparently over debts between international drug and arms trafficking gangs .

In March, police in Playa del Carmen found the bodies of four men dumped near a housing estate. The fact that the bodies were left together in the shrubbery next to an access road suggested a gangland type murder.

There have been a series of brazen acts of violence elsewhere along Mexico’s Riviera Maya coast, the crown jewel of the country’s tourism industry.

In November, a shooting on the beach in Puerto Morelos, just north of Playa del Carmen, left two suspected drug traffickers dead. Authorities said about 15 gunmen belonged to a gang that was apparently vying for control of drug sales there.

In late October, further south in the laid-back destination of Tulum, two tourists – one an India-born Californian travel blogger and the other German – were caught in the apparent crossfire of rival drug dealers and killed.

Mexican state prosecutors announced Tuesday morning that two Canadians were found stabbed to death at a beach resort in Playa del Carmen.

The names and hometowns of the two Canadians are not yet available, although law enforcement said the male victim had multiple identities and was wanted by Interpol on charges of international wire fraud. The daily beast reported that the two victims had been in the area for several months before their deaths.

A security guard at the resort complex was also injured, although it has not been confirmed whether the guard’s injury was directly related to the two murders.

Global Affairs Canada say it Associated press in a statement that he is “aware of reports that Canadian citizens have been affected by an incident in Mexico” and that “consular officials are contacting local authorities to gather more information and stand ready to provide assistance consular”.

Mexico’s Playa del Carmen region, which includes popular vacation towns like Cancun and Tulum, has made headlines several times over the past year. One case occurred in November when two suspected drug traffickers were killed in a shootout in Puerto Morelos.

Prosecutors in Quintana Roo, in the Yucatán Peninsula, are currently dealing with the murder of the two Canadians. The state, home to a large number of Mayan archaeological sites, has doubled its population in the past twenty years.
