Wednesday, April 18, 2007

We all know that there is a lot to see and do in the general Akumal area, to say nothing about along the Riviera Maya and out to the Yucatan and beyond.  But, Wednesday, April 18, 2007, just seemed to be one very special, event filled day, with everything happeneing within 2 kilometers of Akumal ground zero, the Lol Ha Beach Bar.  Of course, the presence of Ryan Fredette, his parents, and their friends, the Firths, - they all arrived in Akumal the day before on the 17th - just made it all that more special and entertaining.

Here's some of the highlights from an Akumal day that included
* CEA's presentation of the Akumal Bay Management Program
* The Akumal Council finally having the Fidecaribe building turned over to it
* Relaxing in and around Casa Colibri in South Akumal
* Happy Hour at the Lol Ha Beach Bar
* Grand Opening of the "new" Mini Market, El Pueblito
* Salsa dance lessons, led by Sybille
* The famous flamenco show at the Lol Ha Restaurant, and
* Karoke at La Buena Vida.
