Spoke to Marina Mike's late last night and the damage he had was from the wind to his palapas. At that time, flooding hadn't been a problem in the northern part of the city limits. The dock of the Aventuras XTC dive shop was still standing.

Whenever I get any more information I'll pass it on.

I am also worried about some friends in the Xcalak area. Has anyone heard from Tom Biller and Yamira? How about Dave Randall from Costa de Cocos?

Thanks

Talked to Tom's dad and heard that Tom and Yamira are OK. Also heard that Tierra Maya lost their dock and that there dive boat was OK.

Don't have any information about either Dave or Costa de Cocos and whether they evacuated or not.

I'll follow up whenever I hear something else and am going to try to find out if there was any flooding in the south part of town.

Hello Rich!

My name is Larry Louderback I have/had? the palapa on stilts next to Tierra Maya. I have tickets to return Oct 12. If you get a chance would you ask if I have anything to return too?

Thank you, Larry

We own property 5 miles north of Xcalak. Not worried about our land, just concerned for anyone who is there. Any more news of people and places would be appreciated. Sin Duda, Villas Caracol, Sandwood Villas, etc.?

Thanks to everyone for replies. I'm scheduled to travel to Cozumel on Thursday. Had planned on getting down to Xcalak on Friday but guess we'll be staying in Coz. We own Cielos Azules (property about 6 miles north of town)and I'll be trying to make contact. If I hear anything, I'll pass it on.

Hi Joel. Best wishes for your trip. I remember checking out the Cielos Azules website a year ago and seeing your photos of the clean up after Hurricane Mitch. Best of luck when you manage to get down there. And yes, any info you get would be great. Maybe I'll meet you on the beach someday.

Thanks.

Costa de Cocos
Just received this from Dave and Ilana at Costa de Cocos....

We are planning to stay on schedule and hope to open on Nov 1st. We have a
crew here of 12+ guys all working, we were in the process of remodeling and
expanding, so everything was put away....
We lost most of the dock, dive shop and wind generator. But we still have
all the equipment and enough of the pier to get in and out of the
boats...so I really dont see any problems. Not as pretty as it was before,
lost some sand and beach...but overall, not so bad.

thanks for your concern
Dave and Ilana
