4 weeks until Grand Sirenis, who else is going.

More snow fluttering in the air today as winter drags on so I couldn't help but have a look at the Lol Ha web cam and it looked amazing. Been waiting for our return to the Grand Sirenis for too long now but finally our 2 weeks in the sun(hopefully)is less than a month away. Who else is heading there and anyone else going from Glasgow, drinks are on me, I insist:-)

Very sneaky but okay, planning a whole day and a couple of half days at Akumal so I will dust off my wallet and.........gulp.......buy some drinks:-)

I will have wifi on my phone for the duration of our stay so I'm sure we can sort something out, seriously can't wait to get back to Akumal.

Barry, how are you planning in getting to Akumal? I am debating on whether to leave resort while at GS.

Why would you not leave the resort

The past kidnapping attempts on Barry and his entourage are greatly exaggerated

Taxis, colectivos are the 2 most popular

I'm sure there are better kidnapping options than me due to my size and weight, I sure as hell wouldn't want to have to carry me.

Seriously though I personally am only planning on visiting Akumal a few times, the only reason for this is it's too damn hot for me to be wandering around some of the places that I would love to visit. Did Tulum ruins last year and it near killed me. The women folk are planning a trip to Cozumel but I don't do boats so that's me out of that one.

Collectivo is the cheapest option to Akumal but we will be using a taxi purely for ease of use and saves a walk to and from the highway.

Barry.

p.s. are you going in May?
