December 12 is the day of the Virgen de Guadalupe, Mexico’s patron saint and she is venerated throughout the country with serenades, processions, flowers and masses. It is customary to see pilgrims walking, running or cycling on their own journey of faith to worship at her shrine.
A group of Grand Residences staff joined a local pilgrimage to the church in Puerto Morelos to worship at the shrine to the Virgin. Afterwards, some of them took part in a community race. One of your hosts, Laura from the Activities Center, came out in front and won the race.
