Today’s guest, Kristie Orozco made the decision to travel to an international destination every year of her thirties. During her first trip to Mexico, she landed in Tulum where she found love in the magical forces that envelop the area. She left Atlanta and her career in audiology to follow her creative passion and started her own design business in Tulum.

 

Living a slower-paced lifestyle was an adjustment for Kristie. She credits the Ladies who Lunch/Chicas who Chat women’s group with giving her a sense of community while she was getting her new life and design business off the ground.  The women’s group connects monthly for lunch at a locally-owned restaurant. They offer empowerment, support, and sisterhood to each member.

 

Kristie’s House of Athyr Design House creates interior, exterior, and floral arrangements in the Tulum and surrounding areas.

 

Kristie’s Favorite Places and Must Sees:

 

 

Kristie’s Recommendations for Dining Out:

 

  • Taqueria Honorio  — The best tacos in Tulum.
  • UMO — A great dining experience with live music.
  • ARCA — Cuisine on the beach with the tastiest bread.

Today’s guest, Andrea Gallo is originally from New York City. When she needed a break from the high-pressure, fast-moving world of fashion designing, Andrea took her first trip to Tulum. Her visits became more frequent and her stays became longer and longer until she eventually made a permanent move.

 

Without a plan on what would sustain her, she started teaching yoga at local resorts.  When her creative side begged to be part of her life again, she began creating Malas, or meditation beads and offering them to her yoga clients.  She now facilitates Mala Making Workshops for tourists who want to tap their creative energy while on vacation.

 

Andrea’s workshops help fund her Raza Mestiza Pet Project, a foundation she created to find homes in the U.S. and Canada for dogs in need. If you are visiting the area and want to help a dog start a new life or donate to a good cause, contact Andrea.
