Default Playa del Carmen, Mexico

We just returned from our annual incentive trip where we take the top in our sales force on a vacation. This year's destination was Playa del Carmen, Mexico. We hadn't been there since 2008 and a lot had changed but a lot remained the same -fortunately.

It was also the first time we had an opportunity to dive with our youngest daughter -we're all certified now so that's one more thing we are able to enjoy as a family. Below are some of the better pictures.

I really envy your family, leistb. I would love to dive, but have drowning fears that go back to childhood. I feel like there's much I will miss out on because of that fear. So much going on under the surface of the water.

Awesome pictures.

Nice dive photos! Honestly though, the Parrot Fish one just makes me hungry. Kinda like when I see photos of lobsters. They are a very pretty fish to look at, but also a very tasty fish to eat.

Thanks, rb! It's a tricky thing for some... if there's any kind of hesitation it can take a fun experience and make it miserable and that defeats the whole purpose. There is a lot to see though and sometimes there's a lot to see with a snorkel in two feet of water!

Thanks, Antropologo! Lobsters are my kryptonite! I can eat those till I'm sick!
