In the winter season, the Yucatecan city of Abalá becomes a true freezer. However, the other side of the coin is a town that, by this time of year, is tested with temperatures exceeding 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius). We’re talking about Chocholá, Yucatan’s oven.
The blazing heat in Chocholá, according to official data, is the hottest of any region of the state on a daily basis. Soaring temperatures are felt from the roads and throughout the community, and from noon to 4 pm, it’s so hot streets are practically empty because inhabitants prefer to take refuge in their homes to protect against the strong sunlight rays.
Nevertheless, some say they are used to it, and is common to see people on the street with umbrellas, or covering their face with anything.
The locals also say that the heat is not consistent all day since in the early morning the temperature reaches down to such a level that some students use sweaters and jackets, which must be removed when the sun is at the highest.
In this situation it is not uncommon for supplies to run a bit thin for purified water, and demand is greater for soft drinks and cold products such as traditional slush.
“Bochorno” (suffocating heat), as people call it, is often the common denominator throughout the state of Yucatan in summer; however, it has been increasing in recent years, and that is why everyone has their own theory about its causes.
