my wife and i did some snorkeling (and they do dive trips too) in Pamul, Mexico. it's about 45 minutes south of Playa Del Carmen, but north of the Mayan ruins of Tulum. most beautiful water i have ever seen in my life! it's called Scuba Mex. great people. they took just my wife and i out on some reefs just right off the beach and just down the beach. got REAL close to some barricuda, sponges, fish, etc. nothing fancy, but a good time w/ out a lot of the tourists and stuff. has a cool little cabana restaurant and bar on the beach too.

Sounds like a great time!

I don't...I try to keep them apart...

No problems here (knock on wood - so I used my head). It's been almost 9 years (in about 3 weeks) since my MI.

I've been to Cancun. I also visited the pyramid at Chitzen Itza and Tulum on my honeymoon. We went to Cozomel on another trip.

I've also been to Freeport and Nassau, Bahamas (seperate times) as well as 3 times to Jamaica.

Ever been to St. Croix? They have a huge 500 pound beer-drinking pig! It jumps up with it's front legs on the fence and takes the beer can from your hand. It cracks the can open with it's mouth and drinks the beer! Apparently they had to switch to NA beer since the last pig they had died from all the alcohol! They also sell this stuff called Mamma Wanna ( I think I spelled that right). Basically, it is Caribbean moonshine.
I also recommend the Cruzan Rum Factory tour. It costs a few bucks for the tour and then it's all you can drink!

Oh yeah, I also did some snorkeling. Too bad I left my hotel room key in my bathing suit pocket.....that was expensive....

Went on day trip south of Cancun with a company called Snorkeling Adventures. Beautiful reef and fish, great food, and private beach. The trip also came with all the cheap beer you can drink. I swear the beer tasted like it had been sitting in the hot sun for a year. I will recommend the snorkeling, but not the beer.

i was pleasantly suprised w/ the beer at our resort (Royal Hideaway). the Negra Modelo and Corona on tap where PDG. the sangria was WAY better though....maybe it was the sun, sand, and the water ??????

I've done the Cancun/Cozumel thing twice. You couldn't ask for a better time. Lot's of sunshine,sand,excellent eats. The fishing was red hot and I didn't even feel guilty about having daquiries for breakfast.

Funny thing is, Corona actually tasted good down there. I think they're shipping the crappy stuff up north and keeping the primo for the tourists. I noticed the locals were drinking Dos Equis mostly. Oh and Lots of Red Stripe (jamaican beer).

I'll go back someday when my kids are older.

There are some pretty decent beers in Mexico, Vienna-style lagers mostly, that don't seem to cross the border. Nothing super spectacular, but decent enough. During Christmas there is a special edition called Nochebuena (Good Night, also the word for poinsettia) which is around 7% and really nice. Ales and microbrews, however, are for the most part a no go. A couple years ago there was a new brewpub in Guadalajara that had pretty good beer, but the people just aren't interested and the last time I was down there it was out of business.
