|CLOSING PRESENTATION – “MODERNIZA 2011” EN CATEMACO
September 28, 2011
The Mexican Secretary of Tourism, aware that the majority of tourist related businesses in Mexico are micro, small, and medium sized
companies, designed a program to clearly and efficiently impact their management - a training program that facilitates the companies to incorporate
effective tools and modern administrative practices; permitting them to improve customer satisfaction, employee performance, and organizational
control; reducing loss, increasing profit, and becoming a more competitive business capable of offering quality service to tourists and fostering a
culture of continuing improvement within the organization.
The closing presentation of “Programa Moderniza 2011” in Catemaco, Veracruz was held in the Sala de Cabildos of the Catemaco Municipal
Palace; with the participation of 16 businesses, including La Casa de Los Tesoros, that successfully completed the program.

|AMIGOS FROM OAXACA
January 29, 2013
La Casa de Los Tesoros had the pleasure of providing guide service to a group of U. S. citizens now living in Oaxaca, and headed by Teri
Gunderson. Jessie led the group on a boat tour of Lake Catemaco, breakfasting at Nanciyaga; followed by another boat tour of the Laguna
de Sontecomapan and tributaries; with lunch at the restaurant El Yuca at La Barra de Sontecomapan. The group stayed at Hotel La Finca
while in Catemaco. Though their visit was brief, we enjoyed very much meeting them and we hope that they return one day.

La Casa de Los Tesoros had the privilege of assisting DEMATAC in a six day guided eco-tour of Los Tuxtlas for a fantastic group of
30 junior high students and teachers from the “Colegio Suizo de Mexico” (http://www.csm.edu.mx/) in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico.
We met Sunday in San Andres Tuxtla, hiked to Ruiz Cortines where we camped and climbed the San Martin Tuxtla Volcano
Monday. Tuesday we hiked from Ruis Cortines to Sontecomapan, where we traveled by motor launch to La Barra de
Sontecomapan on the Gulf of Mexico, and set up camp. Wednesday we visited the Cueva del Pirata Lorencillo (Cave of the Pirate
Lorencillo) en Punta Roca Partida by motor launch. The students spent the rest of the day with school projects. Thursday’s winds
prevented us from snorkeling the reefs off Arrecife as planned; so the day was spent swimming and snorkeling in three different rivers
entering the Laguna de Sontecomapan. Friday the group bused to Catemaco for breakfast at La Casa de Los Tesoros and a walk
about town; then on to visit the Santa Clara Tobacco Factory in San Andres Tuxtla to learn how cigars are rolled. After lunch at
Winni’s Los Almendros in San Andres, the group departed for their return to Cuernavaca. For us it was a memorable experience,
with a really great group of students and teachers. We wish them all the very best and hope to see them again in Catemaco.
Many Thanks and Good Luck Colegio Suizo de México!
