...and hopefully Sex On The Beach...the DRINK...get your minds out of the gutter!!! (Ok, that wouldn't be bad either...) [:D]

I've heard that both are pretty good ....at least that's what I've heard!
I'm sure you'll have a great time there Julie.

1) redsoxman a.k.a. Rich Hubbard (although my wife Andrea logs in sometimes under this, so if it's a sappy post about Jimmy Buffet that's her, not me.

2) Los Osos in the beautiful Central Coast of California. Maybe you've heard of Morro Bay or San Luis Obispo? We're just about smack in the middle of LA and SF off of Highway 1.

3) Visited in '95, '97, '99, '01 and '02. Right when we were getting into the groove of going each year, my wife's birth-mom's husband died three months after our last visit. They went with us on every trip, so we're sort of in a transition stage right now. Hit Florida the last two years (nice, but not nearly as great as QR). Aruba is this year, then our good friends have us booked for Hawaii in '06 and Costa Rica in '07, so it looks like the earliest we'll be back will be '08. And if that happens, the wife has been making noises about going all the way down to Xcalak.

4) Favorite sea activity is laying on the beach.....

5) ....drinking an ice-cold Corona.

Mark in STL.. No, it wasn't me that posted photo of Chemuyil Bay
with all the tall palm. My computer skills are limited & I don't know
how to post pictures.
I wish whoever posted it will do so again!
Been offline for several days. My daughter had heart surgery 1/19

The name is Steph (and Brock who just has me ask questions).
We are from Salt Lake City, Go UTES.
We stayed at AI in Puerto Aventuras a couple of times. May will be our first trip to Akumal and HMB.
I love snorkeling, Xel Ha is great (without the crowds) and rallying around on the old beach cruisers.
Give me a nice cold cerveza with the occasional pina colada thrown in. I also really love a good Jaeger shot eery now and then. Do they have those in Mexico????

1. UGoGirl (aka Jean)
2. Maryland, USA
3. This will be my first visit!
4. Beach walking is my personal favorite, but I'm sure I'll find something new by the end of our trip.
5. Another new to find out!

This is a first for me in traveling ... My daughter went to Cancun 2 years ago and still talks about it, so when my husband won this all inclusive trip through his work -- needless to say, I'm excited and can't wait to experience Mexico. We're staying at the Riu Palace and the online pictures are gorgeous.

Any tips for a first-timer a definitely welcomed!
