Well - I've been a member for a few years now so probably time for formal introductions.
BTW - LOVE this site! I frequently gaze with longing at the web cam pic's.
I am Kellee - husband is Mark.
We're from Redford, Michigan (Detroit suburb).
We've been to the RM 15 times since 2003 (went once-fell in love and keep coming back). We stay in the AI's and have been to the CAT, Dreams PA, Iberostar, Palladium, Sirenis, and Bahia. Have visited Akumal Bay every trip (via Collectivo) and finally now are staying at the ABR (apparently we are slow learners). Leaving two weeks from today for 8 nights at ABR (woo hoo).
Love to snorkel. Working on completing dive certification. Can't wait to see the turtles again! Hanging out the beach and chillin.
Hubby's fav drink = pinata. I love Mango Daq's (but am always open to suggestions).

Hello! My name is Seth and I live in the extreme southern tip of Texas, grew up on South Padre Island and now live on the main-land.

In 1991 my family took a trip to the Roo, we spent several weeks exploring the coast line and spent a few nights at the Villa DeRosa. I was 11 at the time and, having always loved marine life, fell in love with the Caribbean. Akumal was my first experience with sea turtle hatchlings! Since then I've made two road trips from Texas along the Gulf and up into the Yucatan but never made it back to Akumal. Last summer, frustrated by the inability to travel through Mexico, myself and some friends decided to fly to Cozumel. It was a great trip and I really got to spend some quality time in the water.

This year, after having taken four trips to the Roo, I kind of felt like I wanted to do something a little different for number five. I had my heart set on Baja, snorkeling looks really fantastic at Cabo Pulmo and having never experienced tropical Pacific I was really looking forward to a whole new assortment of marine life... but with my only window of opportunity to go being over the Christmas break (my dad and girlfriend are teachers), I was worried water temperature might not be optimal for my need to spend 8+ hours snorkeling both day and night. Thus I settled on returning to my roots! It'll be great re-visiting Akumal so many years later. We'll be staying four nights at La Iguana on Half Moon Bay and then making the trek down to Punta Allen where we're staying at Casa de Ascension for 5 nights.

We fly out from Brownsville, Texas to Cancun on December 18th and return on the 29th.

While we've had a few decent days here in South Texas where the water has gone clear (10+ feet ha!) and I've seen some lovely tropical fish (for here), I need my Caribbean fix and plan on spending every possible moment in the water.

This forum has been really great on helping me research and plan our trip, thank you all so much!

Got hooked on the board when I saw my upcoming trip going down the tubes when the hurricane looked like a Category II or III. Really appreciated the special efforts so many did to keep us all informed. So here is the information short and sweet.

1. name: Jerry Aiken (Jache)
2. place you live Seattle Washington
3. number of visits to Akumal/Riviera Maya: I have never been to the Riviera Maya, but am leaving on Friday for a couple of weeks. Traveling all over, Cancun, Tulum, Playa des Carmen, and Xcalek.
4. I am guessing snorkeling will be pretty high on the list as well as just chilling on the beach.
5. favorite vacation dirink? Wow! You drink on vacation?

Hope to have lots too report when I return from a pure first timers perspective. Thank for everyone who makes this board so great!
