Been lurking for a while, time for introductions! =)

1. Suz_and_Kirk (Susan & Kirk)
2. Lancaster, Ohio!
3. Never been to Mexico (Suz), but Kirk was there about 5 or 6 years ago.
4. We love the beach, and I'm looking forward to going snorkeling for the first time! Guess I need to practice in our pool over the summer, LOL!
5. Love pina coladas and sweet fruity drinks. Love Jamaica smiles!

We're making it an annual tradition to go somewhere warm during Christmas break. Last year (our first full year together as a couple) we went to Jamaica. SO fun to be somewhere warm and tropical when it's cold and yucky here in Ohio, LOL! This year, we'll be going to Akumal. Can't wait, the area looks beautiful!! =)

Hey all, just joined this forum, seems like a fun way to pass some time.

Name is Paco

From Chicago (North 'burbs)

I've been to Cancun area about 20 times since 1989...been to Riv Maya only 3 times, but really love the area. We're on our way back in about 3 weeks for a quick anniversary celebration 4 day, then in July for 10 days with our two kids...there first time to MX. I am jonesing for the overpriced little bar outside the exit from the airport where the busses are....breathe the tropical air, feel the heat and grab an ice cold XX and a tequila rocks. Ahhhh, 25 dollar round for the wife and I, but at last, Mexico.

LIke snorkel and scuba, love rotting on a beach or in a pool with a cold beer, and love my morning michelada...no guilt, it's vacation!!!

Actual favorite....I love a good margarita, a tequila sunrise is great, but really enjoy good reposado tequila on ice with a squeeze of limon and splash of soda...no soda? Hay no problema Amigo, con hielo solamente.





Love it in Mexico...more in Mexico on a beach

Jim700 - live in So California
Many since th early 1980"s - including Grand Oasis, Catlonia, Sandos Characol, Viva Wyndham Maya and Fiesta Americana (Cancun 1984) and now ABR this year. Lately one trip to Cancun and one to DR each year.
We enjoy the quiet beach under a palapa and good book with ocasional (2 per day) snorkling adventures. Shell collecting when we need exercise. Been to all the ruins ( all very interesting and good hikes to the top of the pyramids) before the tourist busses arrive.
Favorite drink is the Tequila sunrise - never had a bad one
