Lee,

we are going to cozumel too!

i haven't been there, only puerto vallarta and cabo so far.

We are staying at the cozumel palace.

Planned first day just settle in, book our tours at hotel, dinner, hang out, sex :) and sleep.

Going diving second day. (me a resort course in the morning. Ken is already certified, so he is doing a deep dive that morning, and then we meet up for a "shallow" baby dive together in the afternoon at Paradise Reef after i finish my resort scuba course). Then nap, Dinner, hang out, sex :)

Third day doing snorkling with dolphins at chakanaab Nt'l park in morning. Then pool, dinner, sex :) (not necessarily in that order ;)

Fourth day planning to go over to mainland and doing Tulum Mayan ruins and the beach there. I think we get back late, so maybe just dinner, no sex (:

Fifth day, open, maybe snorkel/scuba off shore? or do more town, or go to east side for beaches. or sex. who knows :)

do you have any day plans for your cruise stop at cozumel?

Hey ~ Tanya & Ken,

 

Whew…. Where has the time gone?  I’m thinking you are on your trip as I’m thinking of you…..  Threads keep coming and then the next thing I know they are on page 2 and 3…. 

 

I really enjoyed your post and hope every “detail” was accomplished… hee hee…. tongue

Will definitely love to hear back about your “side’” trips… 

 

I think it’s wonderful that the two of you just got away for a little “together” time… Was this trip planned before diagnosis or after?  Interested in knowing. 

 

I hope it was a dream come true for both of you ~ to just get away and decompress from all the “pressures”……  and be fresh when you come back to again move forward in your fight!

Thank you so much for allowing us to walk beside you on this journey…

 

How did you rate the Cozumel Palace?

Did you enjoy the ruins?  We sure did…. Really took us back in time?

How was Ken’s scuba dive??  WOW ~ this would be awesome for sure…..  :-)  

 

How was the snorkeling with the dolphins at Chakanaab Nat’l Park?   

In our booklet…. It has several… Dolphin Encouter, Dolphin Interactive Program, Dolphin Swim & Snorkel Adventure, Dolphin Swim Experience. 

Would be interested in knowing which one you went on!!

 

Cozumel: We’ve signed up for the Segway Adventure & Snorkel.  We even bought our own snorkel/mask/fins…. To take with us!!  We plan to do more in the future so decided to get them.

 

Costa Maya: We’ve signed up for Beach Snorkel Adventure

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you ~ as time permits.

 

Keeping you extra close in thoughts and prayers for a safe trip.

In Friendship ~ Lee & Buddy

Hi bluebird,

We are back! Had a wonderful time.

to answer a few questions. We didn't plan it until after diagnosis. With all the snow, prostate cancer gloom and all that just booked it on spur of the moment.

We loved the cozumel palace, great rooms, excellent service, big jacuzzi in rooms. Everything was perfect.

Ruins were hot, but was worth it. And the scenery was spectacular at tulum.

We both did scuba at paradise reef. Was beautiful. Snorkeling was great too - we did several of those. The reefs haven't fully recovered, but are just coming back. so have to look closely to see where they are growing, but lots of fishes everywhere.

We did swim and snorkel with the dolphins at chankanaab, was great.

now back to reality and back to a focus on upcoming surgery. Hope you have a great time on your cruise!
