It's great to see you taking this on again!. Am looking forward to your pics and description of the adventures you encounter! ESPECIALLY the next 2 days while we're clearing snow and running last minute errands!

We started out as usual…overnight at the Fairmont at YVR. Uneventful day with Westjet en route and the usual tedious CUN routine. Playa Info driver was there on schedule and had us on the highway within minutes.



Got into town around 19:30 and dropped our bags at the hotel…this year we are the Casa de Gopala on Calle 2 but more on that later. We changed into warm weather clothes and went to Las Brisas for some fish tacos. The town seems very busy this year…every table was full at Las Brisas and many who came by could not get a seat. The tacos were great and we headed off to the Dirt Martini as mouse wanted a chocolate martini...











We hung out there for the rest of the night and then made our way home and had a very restfull first
night in Playa del Carmen......sonofdob

Looking forward to your report. We had a drink with you and Deb & Don last year a Dirty Martini. Unfortunately this year we won't be in Playa, so sad. I'll have to live vicariously thru your report but we'll be back next year.

Looking forward to your report. We never met last year (I missed you by a short while at the Luna Blue) but I did meet the Faruba's and a few others that night.

Unfortunately no Playa (or any trip) for us this Feb.
