Nonetheless it sure is an honor to be part of a group of people who like to write and share whatever the heck adventures they are on! Happy travels!

Enjoying your blog...
Hola Sally, I love your positive attitude and yes, you are so right, there is sooooo much more to Playa del Carmen then the beaches. For the most part of my 3 months last winter it was the same and I am a real beach lover and its was sooo disappointing to see the murky water and piles of seagrass on the beaches. I truly believed it was only temporary and this too shall pass, now I'm not so convinced we will ever see the beaches and ocean clear up. This will really hurt tourism and I myself have been torn about returning this winter. Do I go or do I stay???? I think I will give it one more shot but will shorten my stay this year and only go for Jan/Feb. the coldest months in Canada, but if things with the beach don't improve I doubt I will return. I was sooooo discouraged and upset last winter and tried to make the most of it, but we are just so spoiled with all the beauty we have known in the past. I see you are checking out new restaurants and would like to know where the "spa" with all the pedicure chairs is located and the "long" pool???? Did you notice Titi Panini is closed?? The owners closed after hi season last year and are traveling in Canada and the US. They may stop in a see me I invited them. They plan on opening another location in Playa when they return in Nov. I hope you continue to enjoy your vacation even thou the beaches look so deserted......I am sure the natives are restless and businesses are concerned about the future of playa with dirty water and smelly beaches....

Wow, the water looks spectacularly calm! I imagine you are all having refreshments right about now and planning what to do about dinner. Have a blast!

We are ready to go
Up and ready to check-in early this morning with thunder & lightning in the background. Can I get checked-in without a power failure? Wow this WestJet web site isn t the easiest to do what you want quickly. Luckily, after a few clicks to no where the check-in was confirmed. Just in time, power interruption. Thankfully the power interruption was short. Anyway the weather this afternoon was ideal. So after cutting the lawn I vegged on the deck with a Corona to orient myself for our time in Playa. Pat was able to organise our neighbours, Debbie & Brandy, to water her flowers for two weeks. Now just a few hours before Vince comes calling at 6:00 AM to get us to the airport. Save some of that Dos Equis for tomorrow afternoon. Looking forward to our get together and another great vacation. Ray

Currency Exchange Question
Sal, looks like you guys are having a great time. Thought I would ask a question on what you recommend for obtaining Pesos. We usually exchange a little money to local currency when we travel, just to get us in to our destination and then we would withdraw from ABM once we get to Playa. For most of our expenses we just use credit card but just thought I would ask what your usual practice is, as you travel so often to Playa. Thanks, in advance, and enjoy another fantastic day away from the snow and cold :-)
