3. Going for the first time in 11 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Never even been to Mexico before (except Nogales for a day, which hardly counts). Thought I'd do it right the FIRST time! :-)
4. I don' t know yet but I'd say snorkeling is a safe bet. Unless I do really well fishing!
5. I'm with Grasshopper. Pineapple juice and coconut rum.

Claim to Fame: starting the LG get-together for the 27th at Lol Ha, which has now grown to mammoth proportions!!!

1 I'm Bill
2 Live in Western Massachusetts. Rural college town great place to live about 8 months of the year.
3 I've been to Mexico a lot but not much recently. I did a couple of trips in the mid 80s to Yucatan including Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Akumal, Coba, Tulum, Progresso and Merida . Closest I've been since is Cosamel a couple of years ago. February 19 we have a week in Akumal and 4 days in Merida with my wife and 15 year old daughter. I'm wondering how much the place has changed in the last 20 years.
4 The reason I think the area is great is because you get the combination of great snorkeling, beaches, jungle and ruins and if you get to Merida a great Mexican City. I'm also very interested in Fishing on my own or with locals in their pangas.
5 I love a real Margaritas not the frozen ice stuff but a strong one made with real limes, contreau, good tequila and served up like a martini.

Hi. I'm Jim from La Crosse, WI. Before the new list serve was set up, I communicated under the name Jim from Wisc. When I came back on after the change, I decided it sounded to derivative of Craig from Wisc., so I came up with something different.

My wife and I have traveled to Mexico 5 times. I'm 52, she is not. Once to Puerto Vallarta (which we enjoyed) and 4 times to the Roo. We never returned to PV or anywhere else on the Pacific Coast of Mexico because the beaches in the Roo are so white and stay cool (because made of ground coral) unlike the sand beaches on the Pacific, and because water cleanliness and visibility is so much better for snorkeling.

On our trips to the Roo, we stayed in Playa twice and in Akumal twice, although we spent time in Akumal when we stayed in Playa too. Our favorite activities are snorkeling, being out of the cold and snow doing whatever else we do, and exploring new places - restaurants, beaches, etc. We return in 11 days, 18 hours (using the countdown timer I got from reading on this list serve.

jimbo = Jim
Small town in south-central Wisconsin
Been to Cozumel twice, Playa del Carmen twice, and second stay at Akumal commences in 17 days and approximately 21 hours.
Snorkeling
It's a tie between a real margarita made with good tequila and fresh lime juice, a mojito, an anejo rum neat, an anejo tequila neat, El Presidente in a snifter, and on and on. It all tastes better on vacation.

1. bluesky78676 aka. mel
2. Wimberley, Texas (hour outside of Austin)
3. first time to Akumal was October 04...next trip? A.S.A.P.[8D]
4. snorkeling, hammock on the beach, exploring new beaches, restrants with sandy floors!, happy hour at La Buena Vida...
5. love the Pina Coladas at LBV and the margheritas at Cueva del Pescador, but also love Trida tequila-the slow sippin kind. Didn't sip any tequila while in Akumal....my toenails just grew back from a bad experience where a "friend" challenged me to shots of his "Pucker" vs. shots of "my" good tequila that he could not believe was good enough to sip. I learned a valuable lesson about mixing cheap, nasty liquors with good tequila! OUCH. I've been aprehensive ever since to get back into my sippin mode![:(]

Ann, maybe put the Lol Ha gathering on the LG calendar as an event. Makes it easier to know the time and place in case somebody missed the thread. Seeya,
