Yesterday we decided it was finally time to check out Akumal. We’ve heard nothing but great things about it since we got here. It’s always been high on our list of things to do but for some reason a month had gone by and we still hadn’t gone. Well that changed yesterday and I’m pleased to announce that we all had a good time.
Before I get into it though, I suppose I should add a thing or two (or knowing me a hundred) about our three night escape to Tulum. I’m sure you got quite the earful in Cole’s post but he only talked about one day and we all know 5 year olds can never be quite trusted.

For the past few days we’ve had the opportunity to spend time with our Winnipeg friends Dave and Vanessa and their lovely little daughter Isabel. They decided they needed a getaway vacation and as luck would have it, they chose our little corner of the globe.
