It did the same thing to me. I was whining earlier in the thread about needing three more posts. After 10 posts, you can PM.

lmackay (or anyone else who wants answer) - how does the snorkeling thing work. Do you bring your own stuff? Rent? If rent, how much?

If you booked an excursion, the snorkel stuff is usually free. You just go to a counter on the beach, sign out the stuff, and bring it back when you are done. It is supposedly sanitized...the way Mexico sanitizes you might want to at least wipe it down before you put it in your mouth! They usually have life jackets to check out for the kids. Some people bring the little floatie arms for their little ones.

Most of the beaches you pay to get into advertise that the snorkel stuff is included in the price. The water is a little cold. My kids are fine, but I am get chilly. Still worth it to see the colorful fish and sea horses!

We bring our own stuff. I bought the fins/mask and snorkel for around $12 each. Since it is February not sure if Walmart or Target have the items yet. Academy Sport store does.

Hope this helps. If they do rent to you they usually take American $$ so you don't have to worry about pesos. Oh....there are also many "peddlers" on the beach so be ready to say "No-gracias!". They sell everything from personalized bracelets to massages, sea shells, hair braids, etc. My kids still have the personalized bracelets and the massages are pretty cheap compared to the US! All take American $$.

I am so excited!!! Going to the Disney Outlet to see what fun stuff I can find!

The FE list works great. Thanks for putting it together... now this is forcing me to look through Pinterest for ideas, because my notebook full of ideas is obviously not enough

Matyka Kulp (a member of our facebook group for this cruise) should be contacting you soon Carla to be added to the FE list for us. Also, I'll update Post #1 with a link to the mini FE list for easy access, or for any more people who join us to be able to find.

So is anyone here planning on doing any of the tastings that are offered? Last time they offered Beer, Wine, Tequila & Margarita, Mojito, Martini and I can't remember what else. I've read some posts that suggest they offer a Mixology and then a Champagne tasting, but I don't remember that, so I'm eager to see what all they offer when we are there.

I think I spend more time looking for ideas than actually making them. It's just as fun!

I don't know anything about this but it sounds like something we'd like. Do you have to sign up/pay a fee in advance or can we decide last minute and just show up
