It is starting to get hot, isn’t it?! I think we all could go for a Green Getaway at Playa Viva’s 5-star eco-Resort. You might just be able to go since all Greenling customers that place an order this month will be entered to win, see details here. Meanwhile, you can make some Mexican inspired, Spicy Cantaloupe Margaritas to enjoy this weekend. For those, that are not visiting the playas lindas de Mexico this week, here are some local events for you and your family to enjoy right here in Central Texas.
