Pequeno Besar ( Little Kiss ) - Diana

We live in the farthest reaches of northwest Washington, on the edge of Olympic National Park aka "The National Rain Forest". The east end of our county gets 13 inches annual rainfall, the west end gets 12 FEET annual rainfall. Hence the allure of the Riviera. It's beautiful here, but we watch it with long underwear and a whole lot of microfleece on!

We had been going to Akumal annually, but last year was awarded a 7 day Carribean cruise....of which we continually berated the shortcomings of the BVI's and Bahamas compared to Akumal. By day 3, I had Happy Hour down pat, but wished daily that we were in RM.

Given where we live, fish and the pursuit thereof is a large center of our activities, and we follow thru in Akumal. We fish, snorkel, seek out the fish market at the south end of Tulum, try various fish dishes in various towns/cantinas, etc.
My second favorite thing is eating the tropical fruit. But I'm sure you knew this about me by now.
We are like Fullerzoo....off the beaten path, always find/have an adventure!

Favorite drinks...pina coladas, Mexican beer ( what the heck - try 'em all! ) and rum fortified smoothies!


This is a great board - it makes me feel in touch with the RM, even if I have to live it vicariously through someone elses trip report!

Counting down the days - 76 to go!

4. We're looking forward to snorkeling, but haven't done it previously. Sailing and kayaking, too.

Is this the Department of Homeland Security?
How did you find me here?
Didn't I fill out all the forms at the airport?
Darnit Marco, this spyware you sold me sucks.
Yea, yea I've arleady heard your "I killed a man in Reno, just to watch him die" routine Marco.
Go back to painting your toenails.
Whats this? Where am I from? Welllll, uh, Parts Unknown.
How many times to Mexico?
You mean legally right? How many times you got me down for?
Wait a minute. I want to talk to my lawyer. You got a peso for a call Marco?
You are not going to represent us Marco. Remember how much money it took to get us out of the last mess.
No,no. There was no property damage last time.
What do you mean 'just a little' Marco?
What arre you smoking? Keep your snorkle shut.
Never mind him he's had too many Petron shots.
Come with you? Uh, where we going? Downtown?
No, Marco. I don't think they are going to let us stop at a bar.
.....A little later.....Hey you guys, I got to go. Would you stop at that bar?

Hawk, You are too funny! You and I have the same warped sense of humor! Our minds work the same you and I. A typewriter ribbon of enchantemant and excitement running in one ear and out the other! And we couldn't/wouldn't be without it. I detect the same warped sense in other abiding here.

Ohhh Shirleybird...to be sure...soon you will be part of the most warped group that are similar to ...let's say cigarettes...or cocaine...You will get hooked by the warpedness and you will find yourself unable to work....locogringo.com will be on your computer and...sure, you will only look once in the morning and maybe once before lunch...and soon, you will be like Rose. posting non-stop STOP NOW....I can't give you better advice, perhaps Rose can. Oh yes, and the Hawk is so interesting (pbhaaaaa) and Marco Antonio is so sexy (well, yes, he is) But, they are all a smoke screen to entice you into this web of locogring.com.....run don't look back....or.....you will be one of us...

DMurray407 aka Deb
We will be going to Akumal on Tuesday (YAY!) for the 2nd time-the first time was in Aug 2002
We (that would be myself and hubby Rich) just enjoy hanging out and snorkeling.
My favorite drink is a nice cold Coka and Ricardo enjoys an occasional cervesa.

Needa & Rose...I too am an Akumalic. Hic up. Hic up. But I don't vow to give it up or even try to quit because I recognize who I am. AND I LOVE IT. 28 nights!!! Yes it's the sense of humor and comrades. How is the saying "One for all and all for one" We all believe and hope to return. Ancient tribal instincts?

Hawk,

If you didn't make me laugh so much, I'd hurt you!

You are too funny amigo. Now please don't tell 'em about that girl in Reno.

I remember your exact words!

"PUT DOWN THE TEQUILA AND MOVE AWAY FROM THE GIRL....."

Oh, BTW does Needa know about that week-long poker run?

Back next week ya'll.

1. mxco4me aka Terri

2. Superior, WI, on the shores of Lake Superior

3. This is my first visit to the Riveria area. I travel to Cozumel several times a year to visit friends and dive. This year we decided to give the Tulum area a try for a few days. The information you guys have provided has been wonderful.

4. Scuba diving in the morning and then spending a hot day on a hot beach with a hot man and a very cold beer. What can be better than that.

5. I think I'll have to say Sol. It's my favorite and I can't buy it here.

Going to Mexico and MR since 1989. Glory's first trip ever to Mex was to HMB 12 years ago and she fell in love with it. Now we own in Cozumel.
Snorkel, find a new beach/bar, be awed daily by the great views!
Usually a Pato Marg and Glory has the juice of the day
