GM, on the other hand, had never been past the borders of Nogales, Tijuana & Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco). Fell in love with the Riviera Maya & going back with Rodri in March 2005!

1. Name = Douglas Evans (Svenski is nickname from snow ski instructing)
2. Place you live: Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
3. Number of visits to Akumal/Riviera Maya and when you are going back: Going there in November 2005 (2 weeks)
4. Favorite area activity: Snorkelling, drinks under a palapa, talking with the locals
5. Favorite vacation drink: All cerveza's, Margaritas.

I enjoyed the posts here so much, I just had to sign up.

Alice, I have been to Puerto Vallarta several times, and I enjoyed seeing the school in "Old Town". It is my desire to obtain books on primary reading and the sciences, and donate them to the local schools. Our next trip is to Puerto Morelos in November of 2005 (staying at a friends guest house - he lives there in the winter) and I was wondering if primary reading books in English are any good to donate to the schools? I may be able to find some in Spanish but it will take more effort.

It is a long range goal to live in the area for a few winter months each year myself, and I would consider doing some basic science demonstrations or lectures to the kids at the school (free of course). I have done some of this already in schools up here. I have discussed this idea with my wife and she is thrilled, but we could use some direction on what to bring with us in the way of books. Seeing your post on the subject was enough for me to sign up! Thanks!

DenAnn - Dennis & Ann Dore
Hubbards, Nova Scotia,Canada
First time to ABR (11 days & counting) We've also been to Dominican Republic (twice).
Cuba, Puerto Rico, Cozumel and Playa del Carmen
We love to snorkel, which is why we chose Akumal as we had heard great things about it.
We also love exploring the beach and surrounding area and lazing under a palappa with a frosty drink and a good book.
Favorite drink, pina colada, banana mama, whatever.

Way too much snow here, need sun and heat!

How rude of me to just stop by and start posting without saying hello!!
My name is Whitney and I live in So. Cal.
We first found PDC about 4 years ago, and compared to Cancun, it was HEAVEN. But that was 4 years ago.
On that 1st trip we found Akumal and I just about fell apart. TODAY THIS is HEAVEN!!
So we've been about 5 times in the last three years. We are hoping to buy something there too.
As far as beaches go I love Tulum beaches the most, wide and short walks to the beach, but I also enjoy electricty in the morning, so Akumal is about my fav. I can relax for HOURS upon end there, like nowhere else.
We do a LOT of ruins. Feel free to ask....esp about Ek Balam..WOW. But my favorite thing is all about a sunburned back from snorkeling :o)
and then a burger and pina colada at Lol Ha.
What a great board! What a great site!!
Whitney

It's not what you know, it's who you are.
