|Mom"s Day is always May 10 in Mx.|
Here is a paste of my translation of the article. I put parenthesis around my comments at the end, which are normally in blue. Por Esto does not caption its photos, so I dunno if that is the Casa del Chocolate in the pic.
Despite the different promotions at restaurants and other businesses for Mothers Day, business was much slower than last year. The manager said that in addition to gifts and discounts, they sought to liven up the celebrations with music such as serenades, but most families opted to celebrate at home. PE says this is due to the difficult economic situation that currently exists in Isla Mujeres, following the fall in hotel occupancy and the low number of visitors. Hotel occupancy is at 37 percent. Karina Figueroa, at “La Casa del Chocolate” "The House of Chocolate", said compared to last year sales were lower, as people looked for the cheapest thing to entertain the Queen of the house. The most popular items were their handmade chocolates, due to their low cost and excellent presentation, balloons were second, and third came cards, which were followed by stuffed animals and other presents. (PE published the pic sideways. They often view things in relation to economic benefit, and that glass is usually seen as half empty. I didnt know we had a store that made handmade chocolates, which usually means they are hand molded chocolates, often with home made fillings.)
