TJ and Barb...could not believe it when we saw your pics! Fantastic! You stayed in the unit we did at the SS's last September! It sure did bring back wonderful memories. You did not mention our favorite restaurant in the area..Papi's Diner...right around the corner from SS's, by the bakery.. did you eat there? Did the neighborhood kids come around with food their Mom's cooked while they were in school? Did you eat burritos from the guy on the 3 wheeled bike? So glad you mentioned Celi's ..we loved it. Thanks for keeping our AC vacation alive! Felt like we were there again. Is Luis still working there? Thanks again!

OMG!

You guys were on the same shark ray alley trip as we were, I recognize you from the pictures! Our guide was Mike (Miguelo), and we had a adorable little local kid diving with us, deaf & mute, right ?
How funny.
And we too did a Altun Ha & Maruba trip, with Ricky from Searious, just not the same day, Ricki is hillarious.
Well, I came back two weeks ago, and going back in under two weeks . WoohOO!
