    Have a fantastic time in Cancun! We're headed there for Christmas and it's totally been my motivation to stick with the plan ('though you wouldn't know it at the mo with how much junk I've had this weekend.

    Whereabouts are you staying? (no worries if you'd rather not say) Going to see any of the sights?

    Sounds very nice :) We're staying at the Palladium which is about an hour away from Cancun. We've been a few times before and like it so much that we keep going back.

    DS isn't big enough to do stuff like xcarat (and he's just learning to swim), but I'm pretty sure that when he can go there will be no stopping him. I'd like to go to Coba or Palenque but I'm not sure I want to take a whole day away from the beach to do it.
