Riveria Maya.  Yeah.
 
 
The Caribbean Expedition went well, and we are safely returned to the wet, damp melancholy that I like to call home.  We were able to get some good ideas of group activities for February, and specific events (Like fishing, golfing, etc) that peeps might be interested in...we'll send out that info soon.  There are plenty of opportunities for archaeological visits to Chichinitza, Tulum, and others, as well as snorkeling, scuba diving, trips to Cancun (about 1 hour away), etc, as well as just time to lay around and work on your Margarita and tanning skills.  NOTE:  February is peak season, with the resort booked 100%, so please book soon so that you don't get blocked out.  
I've put a smattering of photos from the trip online at the "Wedding..the Prelude" page.  That should help give a good idea of what to expect.  The scenery is beautiful, and while the whole Riveria Maya tourism scene is exploding, there is at least a lot of discussion about the importance of preserving the natural beauty of the area, as well as maintaining the cultural integrity of the Mayan people who still live that region.  For anyone interested in background details, there's some good reading at this site.
