I have been on here for some time now as my wife and I took a trip with our best friends, and this forum had the best advice which made the trip more fun and helped us to save a lot of money.  I started a blog that offers information and tips on new places to visit, ways to travel economically, and tips related to snorkeling and scuba diving...which I LOVE to do!  Take a look and share your comments as more information helps everyone!  Also, if you need to find a great place to get snorkel/scuba gear, I have the perfect place...click on the Leisure Pro link below as this is where my brother and I get most of our gear.

Hola Loco's!
1. Screen name: Big Poppa
2. Live: California - 25 mi. west of Yosemite
3. Visits: Several visits since late 80's. First time here we stayed at what is now ABR - didn't need no stinking wristbands back then. Been here with family and friends for holidays last 5 years in a row. Got caught up in child raising and Hawaii vacations for a while and realized that Akumal is still the best spot for us. #6 year in a row coming up in a few weeks!
4. Fav activities have changed over the years - maybe age related? But always love: No schedule, warm weather, nice people, best beaches, caribbean - well you get the idea...
5. Drinks: Myself- Cerveza / Mrs. Poppa - tequila

"Yes, and all the muchachas, they call me Big Poppa
when I throw pesos their way" - Zac Brown Band

1. Screen name: LocoCaballista

2. Live: Oregon -- southeast of Portland

3. Visits: Many visits to Carribbean -- 3 times to Cozumel. One six-hour visit to RM (I HATE cruise ships and their limited beach time!!!!). Saw Akumal, knew I needed to return and sit on that beach for a week. Will get to finally do that in March 2012. I have a feeling it will become a habit.

4. Activities: Diving, snorkeling, swimming, boogie boarding, kayaking, burying kids in the sand.

5. Drinks: Diet Pepsi. Lots.

Hello, I am Chesley. I am a German teacher from near Dayton, Ohio. Getting ready for our first trip in 24 days--so excited I can't concentrate on anything else! My husband, 2 kids (1,6) and I are staying in PDC in a condo in the Naz Ti Ha condo complex and we are also staying two night on Coz. We can't wait to get there and explore! I think my favorite activity will be snorkeling and my favorite drink on vacation is GOING to be a margarita--not too sweet and on the rocks with LOTS of salt. Loving all the adivice and ideas on this site. I will be frequenting this site from now on!!

1. Board name: sandyfeet
2. Western Massachusetts
3. Yearly to Q. Roo with hubby since 1996. Once to Playa, then Akumal ever since.
4. Burying feet in the sand (1st item of business on arrival!), snorkeling, relaxing from busy jobs, walking beaches, gazing at the ocean, rejuvenating, enjoying quiet time in such a gorgeous and special place.
5. Akumal trips are our time to "recharge our batteries" and cleanse the aging bodies from busy-ness and stressful professions, thawing from MA winters, so alcohol is rarely in the plans - instead lots of fresh fruit juices and purified water...
