Hello everyone...

It's been 3+ years since me and my gal have been to Playa. We just booked our vacation for February and we are very excited. Sun and sand between our toes, can't wait...

Growth. Incredible growth.
And sure you can walk 5th, but you may have to dodge the bullets.
Akumal? Ain't what it used to be. Major drama.

Hey we really love the PDC area and after vacationing on Isla Mujeres the past couple trips we decided to come back. Getting excited and according to our ticker we have to wait 102 days...

What?
There have been problems in Akumal.
There have been shootings on 5th.
But walking down 5th the other night - you’d never know there were any issues here.

You present a more doom and gloom, woe it will never be the same perspective than Babs presents.

Nothing is. ever. the same. For cryin' out loud, suck it up buttercup

Yeah, I'd LOVE to be on a 1990's early 2000 vacation just one more time in old PdcC. It isn't gong to be replicated. Glad I had the experience. Move on.
