Dreaming, drawing and reflecting are some of the most important aspects when designing new products.
Bacalar is this little village not far off the overly touristic towns of Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Bacalar is located on a lagoon. The lagoon is often referred to as the 'lagoon of seven colours' because the it hosts seven shades of blue/aqua water. It is breathtaking. And what better place to dream, draw and reflect?
With only one full day in Bacalar (before taking a bus through Belize into Guatemala) I spent the afternoon on a hammock resting over the blue lagoon drawing future designs. I quickly realized how few designs I currently have posted on my website and want to double or quadruple this number to provide more options to my guests.
After drawing for an hour or two I quickly had a few pages of designs. I was pumped. I could have kept drawing for hours expect I heard the 'coco frio man' arrive (a man that drives around a scooter with a cooler on the back delivering cold coconuts). In Puerto Escondido we discovered coco frios, cold coconuts that you drink the water from (very hydrating in a hot country) then eat the meat. However it gets better, you had lime juice and chili powder to the meat and it takes it to a whole new level. Needless to say the coco frio broke my attention but I was so grateful for the time spent to dream, draw and reflect.
