1) "iheardthings"  is my favorite DeNiro quote from Saturday Night Live.
2) I met my husband in 2002 and we live in Oklahoma.
3) We haven't been to PDC yet but are planning to be there in April 2010!
4) We love to walk the beach and explore the towns, mainly a LOT of walking and looking
5) His favorite drink is a Miami Vice, me I like to experiment with the drinks but always wander back to a good ole cervesa....
We play classic rock music and save the money from our gigs to finance our vacations. We've been fortunate enough to do this almost every year (if home maintenance doesn't interfere) and I usually start planning the next trip as soon as the plane has landed at home.
My first vacation out of the states was to Cancun in May of 2000. Our first trip together was to Cancun in May of 2007. We've also been to Puerto Vallarta with friends in April of 2009.
I plan these trips not only for the R&R, but to spoil my husband for working his butt off all the time (it gives him back a little bit of the sanity that the j-o-b takes away). I can't wait to experience Playa del Carmen with him for the first time and look forward to hearing about all the cool things to eat, see and do!
 
On another note, I've read "elsewhere" that the Gran Porto Real is a high pressure time-share resort. This is one of the hotels we've considered staying at. Does anyone have any feedback on this?

Hey, I'm Beth
From Hartford, CT

My husband and I have been vacationing in Akumal for years, 6 or 7 times...losing count...We were married at the ABR in Feb 2008 with 96 of our closest friends and relatives. This year is the first year we will not be returning since we've started going, but we are already planning next year's trip.

We can't get enough of Akumal and absolutely love vacationing there. While I'm there I love to relax on the beach, but I especially enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving in the beautiful caribbean sea.

My favorite drink? An ice cold cervesa!

Next year we will be staying at beautiful Las Casitas in Akumal. We are counting down the days! [:D]

Let's stay right here and have another beer in Mexico....

OI!!
 
OK my name is Joe, I live in Alberta Canada.  Me casa is Ft. McMurray
I've been to the Playa 3 times with a couple days spent in Cancun for 1 of the trips.  First trip was in 06...its been a bit of a dry spell for me almost 2 years since I went there last.  Made 2 day trips to Akumal from Playa for snorkelling and just seeing it.  I read so much about it on the different boards I thought I should get in on the action.  going back on March 11.....I wish I could get my damn ticker to work.
LOVE IT ALL!!!!  It's such a sweet thing for me I basically loved it as soon as I walked through the airport in Cancun and started soaking up the rays and the smell of the ocean.  Snorkelling top notch, diving for sure, doing some day trips for whatever strikes my fancy, and actually taking a couple times a day and walking up and down the streets from the hotel in Playa....really like people watchin n shiz.
Almost didn't admit but I love all the different blender drinks down there...I wish I could remember them all!  But of course cerveza is at the top of my list....frostier the better.  [:)]

Cheers Joe
