Hi, I'm Frances, long time lurker on LG. Husband and I and 2 small kids moved to Canada 2 years ago from the UK. Big time travellers all over the world and given our location in Europe, Asia was a relatively small "hop". Have been to Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Hong Kong. Then moved to Canada to explore more westerly shores. Have now been to Belize and Akumal, currently booked for Cozumel in March 2012. Loving the LG website, used the booking section for Akumal last year, and they really helped us get some money back when the a/c unit at a special place packed in!!

I don't remember introducing myself... I've been lurking on this board for what seems like years now. :)
1. name or LG board name - Trudi - CheekyMonkey
2. place you live ie: state/territory/country  - Chicago IL
3. number of visits to Akumal/Riviera Maya and when you are going back - Well, I've been there 14 times, from Cancun to Tulum. Going back March 23rd.
4. favorite area activity - Hmmm that's like asking what my favorite song is. I'm a huge fan of the beach and the food so from tulum puebla to playa..it's a tough one!
5. favorite vacation drink - I'm a tecate / sol gal... an occasional Margarita here and there.

My first entry to the Blog. ( or any blog)
I am Steve from Colorado Springs, with my wife Marie.
visited Akumal 5 years ago, now coming back with some of our kids in 2 weeks!
We will stay a week at the Casa Gatos.
my favorite "bargain" tequila is Cazadores Reposado. Top shelf would be Don Julio.
Looking forward to time with our kids, snorkling, time with our 2 year old granddaughter on the beach, and sight seeing.
This trip, we plan a lot of Snorkling, and would like to try some Kayaking as well. Love to bike, and wander a bit as well.
Didn't make it to Talum last time, and will check that out as well.
Comments, or suggestions?
Thanks

Hello, all! PammieJean here at home in Houston. Stayed in Cancun 4 or 5 times and Playa del Carmen twice. Took a colectivo to Akumal last September and loved the snorkeling. Headed to Akumal annd ABR for a full week this September. (Need to figure out how to add the timeine.) Favorite activity? Sun, sand, swimming and snorkeling! Favorite drink? Hard to say. Love me a good margarita but am just as likely to kick back with a glass of vino.

Welcome to the forum pappa Steve. There are a bunch of us here from Colorado. You will get lots of good information but I would suggest that you ask your question as a new post rather than on this thread. That way more people will see it to answer your questions. Don't worry, we have a great group and they will be glad to help out a new member.

Hi Puppylove. If you want to create a brand-new thread, go to the forum you want to post in. Just above the list of topics you'll see a breadcrumb trail - "All forums>>[Riviera Maya]>>Akumal & Riviera Maya Forum". Just to the left of that you'll see a lighter blue "New Post" image. Click on that. Took me quite a while today to find it too.

If you just want to reply to someone else's thread, find a "post reply" link in the same place if you're reading a thread, or there's a "reply" link in the top right of each post.

1.) Name is Arkansasgurl
2.) DFW
3.) I have been to Mexico, more than 30 times.  I used to always go to Cozumel and fell in love with Riviera Maya a few years back.  Specifically, the Playa Maroma/Puerto Morelos area.  I also love the East side of Cozumel SO MUCH
4.) I am there as a beach enthusiast.  I love the beach and ocean, although I cannot swim.
5.) Tequila is my drink of choice.  I love a margarita, but almost everyone makes them too sweet.  Gotta be the right blend of tart/sour/sweet and enough tequila to suit my picky taste.
