I am "Alice in Az." or Alice Gartell

I live in Tempe, Arizona

My husband, Chuck and I, have been visiting Q.Roo since about 1986. At first we had little kids and no money, so we visited maybe every 2-3 years. Then it got to be once a year, and for the past few years our kids are grown, money is a little easier, and we have gone twice a year. Except that this year, we went last July and have not gone back. : (

Favorite activity -- do I have to pick just one? My husband -- who never walks at home -- loves to walk along the beach, doing a "titty walk" to check out the territory, just for scientific purposes.

I love getting a massage on the beach, exploring little villages and ruins that are new to me. I also have made children's literacy a major part of my life. I have been helping Hekab Be Bibioteca for about 6 years now, and have seen huge changes in its development as a focus for literacy in the area. That expanded into providing books for 6 little libraries in the region. And now I am on the board of directors of a great charity "Books for a Better World", and am responsible for buying children's books in Spanish for 53 little libraries in central america. So, it won't surprise you that I like having a little "library adventure" on each trip, exploring little libraries and schools all around, and that one of my favorite things to do is to be a lazy bum on the beach, reading novels! I also adore snorkelling.

Favorite drink -- hmm -- mango kalaans, pina coladas, and for non-alcoholic I like the apple cider soda pop, called manzanita. Yummy!

this was fun,
Alice in Az

pdxbrian is the LG name brian is the real one, I am coming down with my wife Lori for our honeymoon. Truth is we got married last July but did not see the purpose of going tropical in the summer, plus we dated for twelve years, so this has been a long time coming.

We live in Portland, OR which is also very beautiful, but only in summer.

This will be our first time to Mexico and thus our first time to MR. We are so looking forward to it. From reading all these threads and through other sites, if the MR meets even a tenth of my expectations I may be moving here, or at least I will dream of moving here.

My favorite activity will definetly be snorkeling. Second favorite will be lounging on the beach reading novels in between snorkeling. And lastly in a category on its own will be drinking fruity tropical drinks while lounging. Due to the pervasive nature of this activity I did not think it fair to rank it. I mean how can you rank sleep. YOu know you love it and have to have it but still....

Hey Alice minor tangent here. Is the library interested in english books?? I am bringing five books in a series and was going to leave them there. Would they want them or only spanish books. I was thinking that us LGs visiting may go to the library to get something to read.

Favorite drink is definetly red wine. BUT this is not much of a lounge on a warm beach kind of drink. For Hawaii I went with Mai Tais and those were darn yummy, almost too yummy, oh my aching head kind of yummy. But not being a big drinker when not on vacation, I am willing to explore new varieties and flavors, but definetly looking for something tropical. May go with the margaritas, but those may be too cliched.

#1 Fulerzoo - otherwise known as Todd or "who was that guy??"

#2 I live in extreme SE Minnesota on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River.

#3 I have been going to Mexico for 20 years. Multiple times to Mazatlan and Xtapa. Most recently, 2 times to Xpu-ha and the last time to Akumal. Going back for the second time (Tankah) this winter at the end of March.

#4 I like road less traveled. Exploring the unknown jungle path. Snorkeling the edge of the reef. Searching for a place to fish. I'm out at dawn and in bed early. My trips usually turn into self guided eco-tours.

#5 Anything in moderation - I need to be up at dawn the next morning!!

Hi!

Christie aka footballmom (2 teenage football players in the family)

small town S of Portland, OR on the way to the Oregon Coast

2 visits to Akumal, 1 to Puerto Vallarta, a possible return with the girlfriends in the fall but not till 2006 with the hubby. Everyday in my mind and via Loco Gringo.

I love snorkeling HMB and Akumal Bay, and visiting with the wonderful Riviera Mayan people. The are the friendliest people on earth.

Can't beat a Lol Ha Margarita! A cold Sol in the heat of the afternoon is good too!
