  1. Nice to get an update from you Diana. I am currently caught in Milwaukee because there is too much snow to get home today. Not that I’m complaining as it is our first wintery weather of the season, but it sure is different than your pictures!
    With a hug,

  3. Hi Diana! I’m sad to hear about San Miguel – but sadly not surprised to hear about an expat population that doesn’t assimilate very well. Where does your Yucatan adventure take you? Our favorite place is Xcalak. It’s 2.5 hours south of Tulum. There’s not much to it – but we’ve met some lovely people. I can connect you with some canadians that own a sweet little place called Sin Duda. The snorkeling of the beach is the best I’ve ever seen. (And I’ve traveled a lot). Also – a place called Mahahual- about an hour + north of Xcalak – is a big bigger but caters to a tourist crowd on the days a boat docks there..still a sweet little place off the beaten path. We stayed at a place called Mayan Beach Garden – Marsha runs it and is amazing – she knows a lot of the history – good/bad with expats that live there…just throwing that out in the event you’d like to venture a bit off the grid!

    1. I wish we could go more off the beaten path, Marnie. But we have time restraints and money restraints. We will be in Tulum most of the time, staying in kind of a dump in the middle of town. But we will go swimming in the cenotes, see the ruins, and hopefully spend a day in Merida. We’ll have fun! Thanks for the suggestions.
