Moving on to 2017
What an intelligent, broad, timely, kind and no-nonsense blog.It resonates with the feelings I've experienced recently. Any chance I get to back to Playa, well I will take it I've traveled to Europe, India, South East Asia, Africa, South America, the Caribbean and of course, the US. Outside of Mexico, there aren't many places I want to visit at this time, even though I have a ton of airline points. Your writing and words resonate with me on a very deep and personal level. I am so proud to have you as a sister; strong, passionate, kind, funny, articulate, tenacious, proud. That was an amazing blog. I would love to read another but if you also deserve to play and have fun so go for it. There is plenty of content to chew on, beautifully written and well done.....love ya Salsa. xoxo

Playa
There is no escape from life's curve balls Sal, but it seems there's a place where you can sit back and contemplate that life is not that bad after all. Enjoyed your blog. It is clear evidence that you have time on your hands...and sand between your toes! "Ah...the serenity" as they say in Oz!

Playa
Hi Dave, the fact I type 100 w/p/minute and an airport wait helps get blogs out! The mood & ambience in Playa is very upbeat - extra stops have been pulled out in light of recent events. I will cherish the serenity more than ever! Good to hear from you!

Hi Sally and Al..I was looking for updates on your new travel and could not find any. I wonder if you are blogging. I hope you are okay as well. I just hear news just now of what took place at Playa. Please keep me in your blogs. I simply love them as well as your photos. Big hugs. Happy Anniversary. xoxo

Not just looking...embracing
What a delight to read this blog that captures your excitement and emotions of embracing the wonders that opened in front of you. Too often the text of blogs are like too many portrait photos, where the subject is just looking but not engaging with the photographer's lens. This blog is a vivid example of what one misses if a blog is skimmed without reading the text. I feel it Sal...I get it...I relate to the vibe. Thank you for taking me there!

Not just looking...embracing
Dave you are the KING of blogs! I'm just a little cog in the wheel with my travel journey but so honored when I hear from you and Bob etc etc..! Your blogs from the 'internet scam romance', to your first trial as a lawyer, and 'how do we get out of this one' had me by the tail...I copied and sent them to my husband Al as I think we're made of the same cloth. I love your level of sarcasm, intuitiveness and deep emotion when you write. I'm learning from the masters on travel blog :)

Thank you
Thank you for your kind words, I do have others to share this "rocky road" with but it's still a heartache and always will be....... Sounds like you scored the granddaddy of deals.....just curious what is the regular cost of a stay at the Mayakoba and if you don't mind me asking what was the special price they were running?

Hola Sally
You have no idea how much I have been enjoying your blog.......last year I found myself getting jaded and taking all that the Mayan Riviera has to offer for granted and was even considering giving it a miss this winter after spending the last 15 winters I was getting restless and thinking I would search and seek out a "new paradise" but you have renewed my faith in all that I have loved about the Yucatan and now I can't wait to go back...... PS, your blogs have been very theraputic for me and have even put a smile on my face during my darkest hour........I suddenly lost my younger sister a few weeks ago and she was my sidekick and used to love joining me on my winter retreats to Playa, it will be hard to return this year without her......

Nature: Cheaper than Therapy
Hi Debbie, first of all my condolences in the loss of your sister. I know that darkness having lost my brother suddenly in 2010 & felt I could NOT come back here either. Like I profess, have your accommodations around here, but get out & partake in the nature part. It's endless as you know. PS the beaches are great this year. The sargassum which was troubling to all of the Caribbean is gone. This has had a huge upwing effect on the Riviera Maya; back to its old self. PS take care of yourself; grief is a rocky road. Hoping you can share the journey with others who loved your sister. Share the load. And thanks for your very lovely thoughtful comments. Sal :)

I've never read a more effusive blog...
they should hire you to promote their hotel. You've already written the script.

Our Big Mayan Adventure
Well thank you so much Bob/Home & Away. Coming from you, I feel very honored :) I actually did end up speaking to management over a glass of bubbly & they said I should promote the hotel!! :) I think they were humoring me, but nonetheless, it was a really cool adventure & while a bit out of my element for crowd & a resort, they really know what they are doing. I'd come back for sure (ahem especially if I got the same deal!)
