Welcome Karen....

from another Canuck, Point Edward, ON. You can't get much closer than that! You will have a wonderful time! I think the most common reasons people get sick is the sudden change in climate (not going to happen for you guys), lots of booze (not always), different foods and lack of sleep. Let's face it. You aren't going to sleep the night before you leave and once you hit Playa you're going to go until you drop. Just take some immodium in case you get Montezuma's revenge (or whatever else works for you), drink lots of bottled water (I take some with me for the plane). I've never gotten sick in Mexico, but did in Spain and the Dominican.

Hi all,,Hola Muchachos,,perfect summer days here in Hamilton,,Ont.n No humidity,,what a relief..Just a month n a wee bit to go until we arrive in Playa,,Thnks for the immodium advice. Too funny about the D.J. Might be an angle I can use when I get there,,lol,,,is she a red head by any chance? I have been doing some clothes shopping,,All summer stuff is on sale now,,but my husb. is saying I should,nt. That I should wait n shop there..Says it should still be cheaper,,,hmmm,,a lighter suitcase makes more sense,,but I,m a bargain hunter,,and thngs r pretty cheap here,,,Also we were told that cabs are a really good way to do off the beaten track tours,,,that u can just wander thru the ruins un escorted,,and avoid fees,,etc. Any validity to this,,I have also been told that the area is relatively safe,,does that also hold,,for late in the eve..when we are 2 lost drunk gringos,,,lol,,Any how,,,nice to hear from u all,,and say hi to Karen Parron from me,,Adios amigos,,Karen
