Just looks like an awesome time. :)
We loved it so much we had to go twice in a row!
WOW. This place is AMAZINGLY gorgeous. Did you go through a travel agent, or plan this on your own?
We planned it on our own. My Mom did lots of research.

They named it that because the ancient Mayans built a temple on the Island to honor the goddess of fertility, who was a woman.
Such beautiful waters. :)
That is a beautiful place... I know you guys had a blast!!
I need to find a way down there! Looks so beautiful!
And you and your Momma are two lovely ladies! =]
Thank you! Last year we went in April. It was a bit too hot. Feb is a much better time to go.
Gorgeous!! I miss the beautiful waters along the mayan riviera, and would go back in a heartbeat. Your mom is a beautiful lady! (and you look great too!)
Thanks! I think it's awesome how young my Mom looks for her age (she's in her mid 50's), especially considering she's had over 20 major surgeries! Gives me hope for the future.
She does look wonderful!! I didn't really think you had anything to worry about before seeing your mom, but you certainly do come from 'good stock'. ;)
She's the best. I feel so lucky to get to spend time with her. She's the best Mom I could imagine. It is such a gift to have a loving and trustworthy parent who you can admire and respect.
I would love to be able to spend time with my mom like this, but between my hectic life/kids and her job its next to impossible to get time alone. :( Makes me sad cause she's not in the best health (she's a type I diabetic and getting worse through the years, just just turned 62 yesterday) and I just don't see it happening.
Maybe you can plan to at least go to lunch with her and visit alone. Even a few times a year makes a big difference.
She lives in Utah and I'm in the DC area. Lunch is kinda out of the question. If we were closer, it would certainly happen, but we're not. I haven't seen her since 2006. (We do talk on the phone every day.)
What beautiful scenery!
What are you drinking out of a plastic bag?
It's this hilarious mixture of rice milk and cinnamon with a few other things. It's like a super rich chai shake. I only had a few sips before I was too full to finish. I had to try it because all of the locals were getting it. Craig said it has a special name starting with an H. It just cracked me up that all you get is a bag and a straw, and you have to hold the top and bottom to drink it. I always try to get what the locals are trying, because it's fun to enjoy new things. I wouldn't get that again though.
Horacha? (Probably spelled wrong.) If so I think I've seen it in cans at the grocery store.
It's so silly to serve it in a bag like that. *lol*
That sounds right! Even funnier, the guy had plastic cups right there, but still used the baggie method.
He probably just had the cups for the tourists who freaked out over the baggies. *lol*
It's called Horchata and they have recipes
for it too! It isn't really my thing though. I prefer an iced soy chai tea.
That's it! I thought I might be missing a letter or two. :) It definately sounds worth a taste.
