Hi All, I've lurked on this board for a long time, and just now joined.  Here's my list:
1)BetznRich (for Betsy and Rich)
2)Minneapolis, MN (why, I don't know...)
3)This will be my 5th or 6th visit to the RM.  We are taking a short trip this time... Leaving Feb 11 and coming back on the 15th.  We are staying at Luna Azul on HMB.
4)Favorite activities?  Relaxing on the beach w a drink and book, snorkeling, exploring the area, enjoying the restaurants.  We've gone to Chichnitza (sp?) twice, and have gone fishing in the boats they have right there in Akumal bay.  This time we are planning to do a deep sea charter for a half day.
5)I drink tropical drinks (esp. margs) until I'm sick of 'em, and then go to one of my usual beverages, like vodka cranberry, and even an occasional beer.
 
Although I've been there several times, this will be Rich's first trip.  I am really excited to show him around.

Hi,
 As you can see I am new to this board.  My user name is beach gramma- my real name is Donna and I live in Fond du lac Wisconsin -- about 65 miles north of Milwaukee and 70 miles south of Green Bay--GO PACK.  This is my first trip to Akumal or anywhere in Mexico.  My husband and I went to one other AI in Punta Cana a few years ago.  ABR was recommended by the TA for its beach and laid back atmosphere. We will be there 2/26 -3/5. As for drinks I am open to suggestions. All I know is that anything tastes better on the beach.

Hi All

From Montréal
In 2010, I felt in love with Riviera Maya and visited it twice ( Barcelo Maya Beach and Palladium)
I like to snorkel, lay on the beach, visit the area (ruins, cenotes) and drink margaritas at Casa Cenote
I am planning another visit in 2011, with family members and maybe in a rental villa

NOTE: I may appear new to loco gringo, but I have actually been checking out the web cam every day for over two years now. I have really enjoyed the forums and since my wife and I are thinking of moving to Puerto Morelos or Akumal, I figured this would be a great way to connect with other ex-pats.

That is great.. it is wonderful to see all you lurkers diving in! As a relative noob, I am so glad to have found this site, this forum and these easy going yet incredibly helpful and friendly folks!
That is some serious webcam  lurking there Darryl/Laura lol It is just slowly filtering into my pea brain that an eventual retirement or at least some very serious snowbirding in that this neck of the woods may be something to work towards.
