Hi... I am late introducing myself....but

LG Name is AlaskanGringo.. Vicki
We live in Ketchikan, Alaska a small island of 15,000 people with 30 miles of road, as far south as you can go and still be called an Alaskan!
We have only been to Akumal once, just a month ago.....OMG.. feels like forever....We are going back in April, to do things we missed and find land to buy, I hope!
My favorite drink is Don Julio... sip it, slam it, mix it or share it! But, I didn't have time to try others... .so that will be my next mission, trying some of these favorites!
Favorite thing to do........Beach, Snorkel, Sunrises, Moon and star watching, talking to the Mayan people and drinking whenever I want, eating whenever I want, sleeping whenever and doing whatever whenever! This is a family board, right!

I just signed up on this forum. My family and I stayed at the Bahia Principe Akumal in June 2004 and are now hooked on the Mayan Riviera. I grew up I L.A. CA and the Pacific and have been to Puerta Vallarta. Forget that!! We love the Caribean and Mexico. Now that we have extended family interest, we have been looking into a Villa. Anyone out there have experience with this, and what are your thoughts???

Okay so there is a disappearing photo by your name Lori. It is of a Palm Tree and what looks like a long bridge. Where is that taken? Thanks so much.
(Really, people, I am quite sane. Haha)

Needabeach,
I closed the property about 4 months ago- quite a grueling process only because I didn't know what I was doing. Luckily my friend who knows the Boca Paila Penninsula knew about this property and helped me make a deal. There were a couple of realtors in the beginning who did not know what they were doing and tried to sell me Ejito land ( communal land )
Let me know what kind of land you are interested in- I will check it out next week.
I think the Sian Ka'an is the best place by far. It seems a long way down now..... That new bridge looks pretty big for just a dirt road.....
Anyway I know the process now.
I'll help in any way I can.

Hey Dan:
So curious. How long ago did you get your property? Anything of interest available that can be built on?? I know that Tulum has a lot of building permit problems..did you have any problems? Enlighten me oh wise property owner.

Jonesville, MI, 1 1/2 hours west of Detroit
I've been to Cozumel 3 times and Playa once in the mid 90s. Kathy and the kids (5 total, but only 3 still at home) will be traveling outside the USA for their first time in late October/early November.
Looking forward to the ruins, snorkeling/ diving, exploring, and meeting the Mayan people
I'm a tequila man, and Kathy will be nursing those ice cold cerveza
This is a great site, with wonderful people. We will be down Oct 29 thru Nov. 12, 2005. Hope to meet some of you then, and others on future trips.

Linda,

I am fascinated by your stories of the Riviera Maya before all the development. Thanks for sharing your stories. I really feel I missed out on something special not visiting the area 20 years ago.

It saddens me to read your account about how the Mayans were forced to move because of development. At times I wonder if their lives were improved or worsened by the massive invasion of tourists.

Was it you that posted a picture of Chemuyil Bay on this site quite some time ago when it was still lined with tall, curved palms? Chemuyil Bay is still beatiful, but it must have really been special before the palm blight. If it was you that posted the picture, please do so again.

Stillwater,Mn. And a cabin where it was quite cold when
we were there last weekend,minus 30 degrees...

Looking forward to my second trip to ABR in three weeks.
Love the snorkeling,and since have gotten my diving certificate.

I'm sure the blue water will be much warmer than the iron pit mines
of Northern Minnesota where I did my test out dive...

Can't wait to have a cocktail or two,as long as it's by the water...

1. Flash 03 (Annette from Iowa) Earned my name from my first trip to Mexico. (Too many Cervezas).
2. Eldora, Iowa
3. Went to Cozumel once and going to Akumal in 58 days!!!
4. When in Cozumel we rented Jeeps and visited the bars on the other side of the island. What I remember of it, was very fun.
5. I'm a beer woman at heart, but love the tropical drinks too.

March 20th can't come soon enough. Right now the weather is 23 with freezing rain. I was just introduced to your website and find it absolutely facinating the responses you get. See you in 58 days!!
