For the benefit of the children of #IslaMujeres, the private initiative will join efforts to collect toys that will later be delivered on the occasion of Christmas, for which it will implement -from November 24 to December 22- the “Toys + 'Tings” program, which will consist of handing over a toy in exchange for a signature cocktail at participating establishments.

My name is David Araya and I am manager at Javi's Cantina. I have decided to begin this iniciative called Toys + 'Tings thinking about placing a smile on children's faces this Christmas.


We've teamed up with other businesses that I know operate at the highest standards, setting up a 5-week 'tour' date in order to unite efforts between locals and visitors of Isla Mujeres.


Toys + 'Tings is a non-profit, Christmas toy drive, aimed at helping the families who most need it. The dynamic is very simple; bring a new unwrapped toy and receive a signature cocktail in exchange!


Every Wednesday from 4pm-6pm at participating restaraunts. Toy distribution will be on Thursday December 23rd with a special Meet & Greet with Santa Claus!


I've experienced first hand what it feels like not to have a Christmas present, add to that the clear necessity some families on the Island have, and it was an easy decision to make and launch Toys + 'Tings.

*If you're interested in donating but your Isla vacation does not necessarily land on a Wednesday, you can still help:
