Live from the "Cat!"


Well we are here! Sun is shining, weather is hot, drinks are cold, life is good!

By the way for those of you that don't know, the "Cat" is what all us "Crazy Cat People" call the Catalonia Riviera Maya / Yucatan Beach!

Updates s they happen, & any questions, ask away!

Hey Pablo!

Well, I'm so jealous right now. I'm afraid I was out voted this year and our 7-year run to the Cat is over. :'-(

I know that you and Sue will have a fantastic time again and I'll be thinking about you constantly the next couple weeks. Please say hello to Gregorio and please order a happy donkey so that he doesn't forget how to make them.

Stephens' will be there in a couple of days so keep an eye on them - nothing but trouble you know. I suppose Mike is sitting next to you - hello to him too!

Hugs to Sue & have a great time.

Hope to see you next year!

Will you please update me on the temp of the pool? When we went in January a couple of years ago the pool was freezing. How bad is it now?

Wish we could have been there with you.

I have loved reading all the info you have posted - maps, tips, photos WOW.

We booked a Privileged Oceanview room Yucatan Feb 23 - Mar 4 and Still have not been able to find our if these rooms exist on that side or only on Maya Side.

Can you Help with this info? I would be most grateful. Thanks.

I'm certainly not a expert like Pablo but as you are from Canada and traveling with a Canadian tour op you can't, as far as I know, book the Maya side. Only the Yucatan side. Now you may be able to upgrade to the Maya side, not sure about that. I'm sure Pablo will chime in once he gets ogranized for the morning.
