On our way on Thursday for our fourth trip to the Riviera Maya, fifth to Mexico.
My favourite drinks are caipirhina, paloma and a simple g&t. Hubby prefers a really good rum straight up and beer.

Tanda50=Tom and Annette.
We live in a coastal town in extreme Northern California.
Making our third trip to Akumal in November this year. We have also been to Puerto Vallarta.
Favorite thing is chilling by the ocean in Akumal with a cold cervesa or whatever somebody has just concocted in the blender.
2nd favorite is sitting in our boat at the lake (inland-out of the fog) with an ice cold cervesa.
I think I already addressed the favorite drink question above.

farmer_steve38 here from southern Minnesota. I have not been on this forum for quite some time so I need to reintroduce myself. I'm married, travel alone, 49 years old. March 15-22 will be my sixth trip to the Riv Maya area. I have stayed at the El Cozumel twice, the Occidential Grand,Grand Sirenis and this will be my second trip to the Iberostar Parasio Beach. As far as experiances I really have enjoyed the Xcret park, and the snorkel trips to Planacar reef. Bu ti look forward the most to the &35 massages in Playa! As good as the $150 resort ones!
If anyone is staying at the Iberostar March 15-22 and wouldn't mind meeting a new friend please drop me a note here or at yahoo as farmer_steve38 there too. Here is wishing all of you a great trip!

We've gotten so much good information from this forum since 2008. The forum lead me to ABR. We stayed at ABR in May 2008 just after the fire. It was one of the most amazing trips we've experienced.
We just returned from our first trip to the Grand Palladium, and we're looking forward to going back in October.

Ahhh, just saw this... I like to do everything backwards apparently...[:D]

Janet, will be travelling with my teen boy, hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and after the winter/spring we've had, I NEED sunshine and sand!! Have never been to Akumal. Traveled all over Mexico as a kid with my parents, but as an adult have only been to Mazatlan and PV. Favorite area activity... easy... anything outside, in or out of the water, as long as the sun is shining :)

Vacation drink... anything cold, wet and with alcohol! lol
