Hallelujah posting for first time!!!!!! 10 days and counting, love the LGers, love Akumal, love the kind, gentle local Mayan population. Taking our 12 yr old son for 1st time to Akumal. Any suggestions besides YalKu for snorkeling locally, maybe a close cenote via taxi or collectivo??
yours or Mayan

So excited to join the rest of the crew, forgot to properly introduce ourselves. Tim and Leslie, Connecticut residents, visited Mayan Riviera since late 80's specifically Akumal. Absolutely LOVE it. Doesn't really seem to change, still that little sleepy, fishing village vibe, hope that never changes. Love snorkeling, sun worshipping, cultural visits, exploring, interacting with the locals, ok an occasional bebida, something along the lines Margarita, no sugar for me, for her, Stoli and club, gotta have the fruita. Decided the X-mas trip was due, damn the torpedoes, we're moving ahead. Trying to locate an old friend Juan Sandoval, used to work at the old Akumal Oasis, any help?

Hi Farmer Fred,

We'll be in Puerto Morelos but will be spending a few days at Akumal when you are there.  Maybe I'll where my Green & White Jersey!  I used to have a membership at the Quapelle Valley Golf Course!

I am Jane and my husband is Jim.
We live in Ontario, Canada
Our first trip to ABR was last year and we are scheduled again to go in April.
The snorkling is probably our favourite thing.
The Caipirinhas at the Moonrise are great.

We will be visiting next week for just 7 days and hope to make some Akumal acquaintances while we are there. 

I sincerely hope my fact finding about La Buena Vida is true and there is karaoke on Wednesday night.  If so, that's where you'll find me.  I'll be the one fighting for the microphone.  [:)]
