The Christmas Spirit is always apparent in the smiling faces of children.

Merry Christmas to all of our friends across the world! In the spirit of the Holiday, we want to share with you what has made our Christmas this year... An amazing school teacher in Mulege, Laura, has taken in 11 children who have been orphaned due to the substance addictions of their parents. With the help of some of the Coyote Beach "locals", Laura brought "her" kids to the beach for a day of fun in the water, Santa, lunch, a pinata (of course), and a bit of motorcycling  Many of these children have never been to the beach, much less, had an opportunity to play in the water. Seeing these smiles lit up our Christmas. If you are coming to Mulege, please consider loading up your panniers with pencils and school supplies - I wish we had. They share a 1 room house. Anything would help. If you'd like to help in another way, their Facebook page is Casa Hogar en Mulege or send us a message for the local Gringa contact here in Mulege.

Also, if you're interested in donating via PayPal, their e-mail for PayPal donations is:

For many of these kids, it was their first time at the beach and definitely their first time in kayaks, on paddle boards, etc.

Santa made an appearance with toys and games for the kids

Everyone enjoyed lunch after swimming and motorcycle rides...

Giving the Pinata a good whack!

And the pinata breaks to much gleeful shouting!

Big smiles all around as these kids share their pinata winnings

Laura and her ninos...
