Hello all!
 
1. My name is Fumi.
2. I presently live in Los Angeles, Ca.
3. I used to live in Cancun and just moved back to California in Aug 2014 (yeah, I used to live in Paradise...). 
4. I'm a triathlete and the 70.3 Ironman is my favorite event (they hold it in Cozumel now but used to have it in Cancun). The swims are really great there too, including the Cruce Isla Mujeres, which is a 10k swim.
5. I have been, and always will be, a tequila drinker. Straight with a Fresca chaser. Never mixed. In a pinch, I'll have a michelada. 
 
If anyone has any questions about the area, I've got eight years of living experience in Cancun and used to work in a travel agency so feel free to ask!

1. name or LG board name - Maryf

2. place you live ie: state/territory/country - SFBay Area, CA

3. number of visits to Akumal/Riviera Maya and when you are going back - 8(?) times since 2000. Haven't found a place we like as well as ABR, so staying at Playa Caribe this time in April thru LG. Taking along our young adult kids this time, hoping to hook them, too! Starting this trip off with a few days in Mėrida -- a nice counterpoint to just chilling at the beach!

5. favorite vacation drink - Margs or a local cerveza

I haven't checked in in a long time.....I was a bit active under the name FrankO long ago but when the board was changed I changed my online name, too....it was a running joke at my then work.
I am a retired firefighter from SoCal and my wife and I are now raising our kids in Mexico. We lived on the beach in Nayarit in the small town of San Pancho for a year and a half and we now reside in San Miguel de Allende, GTO.
Schooling for our kids was a real priority and, when they were younger we were fine where we were.
We'd have loved to moved to the "other" coast but cost of living, accessibility to schools and affordable housing were drivers for us to move to the interior.
And, I have opportunities here in the solar sector that I was not finding in Nayarit.
Poco a poco.
My wife and I honeymooned and vacationed in Akumal and PDC a few times and we have always wanted to show our kids that area.
We will be there in April for two weeks!
Viva Mexico!

This thread is awesome- it's going to keep me busy for a few days :-)
1. Nichole
2. Hales Corners, WI
3. Oye...I am pretty sure I have lost count...probably 14 or 15 times?  Heading to Tulum in April (3-10)
4. I really love snorkeling, swimming, sunning, playing in the waves and sampling tequila  
5. Sol, with a pinch of salt and lime. Has to be the most refreshing drink on the planet. First time I had  it was in Matamoros furniture shopping about 8 years ago when we walked over the Rio Grande with my 5 year old in hand. Fresh Margarita is a close 2nd.

I've been lingering around here long enough I figured I should add my introduction:
  1. CivicDriver
  2. Milwaukee, WI
  3. We've been to Mexico four times since our first trip in 2010. We decided one day that we wanted to go on our first real vacation together to a beach somewhere. We were seriously considering Florida until we found Mexico was cheaper and easier. After that, we were hooked. We first stayed in Akumal in 2014 and are returning again in 2015.
  4. As much as I love snorkeling and swimming, nothing beats disconnecting from work/life, relaxing by the pool or beach, and having great food and drinks on our own schedule.
  5. Margarita on the rocks

Hey all, had to change my  user name to Laurajean, previously Laurainpa!!! (long story) So. Questions. Been to Cancun/RM 37 (?) times now? Started going when I was just a "kid", now we go every year, 2x a year when we get lucky. Stayed at all the AI's, NOW we smartened up and go the condo route (a villa now) (and ALWAYS book with Loco Gringo:)
 
Anyway, since I'm "new" again, I lost my post count, but nothing wrong with starting over!!! Will be heading back for two weeks or so on March 10th. Counting the days as always!!!! My count starts from the second I get home from the last trip!! It's been a balmy 2 degrees or so here, so yeah, I'm itching to get my toes in the sand and a drink in my hand!!!

smrardin - Sherrie
Western suburbs of Chicago
Once to Cancun (25 years ago) HATED it, then three years ago discovered RM and 4 times since. We'll be there again beginning 2/1 - this time to begin looking for retirement places. 
Favorite activity? Hmmmm, Mayan ruins for sure but followed closely by taking photos of the amazing wild life and God's beautiful creation. Oh, and we're foodies too. 
Favorite drink - beer (preferably dark) and for non-alcoholic  - cafe con leche
 
Seriously, Cancun almost ruined Mexico for me for life. Had it not been for a trip to Honduras a few years later, I am not sure I would ever have ventured back. But, we did and the ruins at Copan got into my brain and my heart and I have been fascinated with the Maya ever since. This trip I hope to check off Coba, Muyil, and if time allows, Chacchoben.
