    This will be a taster until I get my films developed and a helping hand from Dawnie to get them on here for a more detailed trip report.

    Highs:

    Weather was gorgeous
    Hotel was gorgeous
    Food and swimming pools all gorgeous
    Loved it and want to go back again.
    Glad we went for 3 weeks because the time just flew by.
    A little summer romance ensued for DD. His name is Ernesto and he was just so cute.
    Beach gorgeous
    Mexican people were just so lovely and humble and sweet
    Got sloshed one day at the pool bar by 10am... Lord :rolleyes008: only knows what was in those drinks!

    Lows:
    Had to come home
    Saw a McDonalds in Cancun as soon as we landed WTH?????
    Some Taxi drivers thought they had airplanes and I swear they tried to take off!
    When it rains it's a real doozie
    The Hotel grounds became very slippy when wet, I went down once and DD went down twice and I saw three people with broken legs by the time we left.
    Frippin mozzies everywhere... I got eaten alive.. last count I had 36 bites :(
    Because of the humidity mould grows on everything or it smells mouldy
    Put on some weight.

    Well, that is a teaser for sure! I'm really sorry you fell! :hug2: Don't worry about the weight, it was probably those fancy drinks. You'll take it off now that you are home.

    Looking forward to reading more and seeing the photos!

    Sounds like a great trip despite the lows!

    Don't worry I put on weight in the last few weeks too - and came home to DH proudly bragging that he'd lost some!

    Can't wait for more details! :yes:

    Given my history of injuries since I got older those falls would be a major turnoff for that particular resort for me. But glad you had a great time elsewise.

    So you fell over when it was wet or you fell over after those fancy drinks?

    Can't wait to hear more and see some pics!

    I was going to ask if you were wearing Crocs!! I was wearing my Crocs at the Boardwalk back in Feb and it was raining. Alysia was sure I was going to die since I kept slipping.
