Yes, I have stayed in Cancun. Once. The water was beautiful and the sand was soft. Period. My basic philosophy of "Why not Cancun?" goes back to the quote by James Michener in my previous post: "If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home."
(Playa del Carmen (Mayan Riviera) Beach)Here is a link to a Travel & Leisure article from January 2006 that explains the difference between Cancun and the Mayan Riviera -- even going so far as to tag a new term that has really stuck in my mind: Eco Murder. Read the article HERE.

So, the So-Cal girl in me says, "Bonfire ring!" Right?
(My next thought: "Do they have marshmallows in Mexico?")
Good thing I took a closer look before I gathered the wood...That's right - a turtle nest! Very cool.
The nests outside of our condo did not hatch while we were there, but I did have the awesome experience of seeing some baby turtles digging out of their nest on one of my morning walks. Luckily a nice Mexican man and woman were gathering them up and putting them in water until they could release them later in the day (so the birds wouldn't eat them for breakfast!).
Note: No, this is NOT turtle soup!
Another Mexico memory to add to the stash of "I am different for having seen/experienced...in Mexico!"

Sometimes there is netting covering the dried palm leaves to protect the roof of the palapa from wind-damage.
