Nice...no dry suit for me. Gotta have warm water! I remember diving 3-5 dives every single day except one while I was there plus leading the snorkel tour at the lighthouse everyday. Pretty awesome but the body does take a beating. I do miss that underwater life.

Yay Rob oh Rob oh….I really get excited when I read your first post telling us that you’ll be in Playa soon, because that means so will we yippie ….. so this year we’re spending 8 days in Playa and 13 in Puerto Morelos …. thank- you sooo much for turning us on to this lovely little town and gorgeous beach …. We truly love both places Playa and PM for different reasons as each have their own pleasures to offer…anyway we’re anxious to have our daily drink in one hand, taco in the other and let’s not forget the p-a-r-t-y-i-n-g.... ay ay ay ya ya
