    Got it. Thank you. Got ahold of Senor Cruz and he’s picking us up tomorrow early and taking us to several. Thank you again.

    Google calls it "Point Esmeralda" (Punta Esmeralda en Espanol). I've seen it referred to as Playa Punta Esmeralda online, but I usually just call it Playa Esmeralda.

    Here's a labeled Google Map:

    A taxi can drive you right to Esmeralda, or just walk along 5th Ave or the beach to get there:

    My dear, if there’s one thing I’ve learned, no plan is ever set. :p

    That said, yes, I look forward to whatever the future brings. And I’m brushing it along in the direction I think it’s supposed to go. :D

    I always bristled at "5 year plans".

    I've finally developed one though:
    Don't get eaten by a bear.

    I'm pretty sure 5 year ago me and 5 year from now me agree with me on that goal.

    You are correct. He was terrific and we will use him again for the next trip. Very good man. A good resource as well.

    I had a really good thought provoking discussion with him roughly around social entropy and personal responsibility.

    Up to that point I had no idea there were perspectives that were non-Texan that had any merit at all.

    That one was too easy.

    Obviously everyone's entitled to their own wrong opinion.

    I met a friend last year in PDC. She lives in Veracruz Mexico. I will be moving to Latin America on December 9th. I'm going to spend 3 months in Veracruz before traveling south to Guatemala.

    Does anyone know if Veracruz has an enhanced magnetic presence that far from the impact place?

    Just got my tix for PDC this Dec! Son’s gonna miss some days of school but this is worth it... lots of cenote and sunrise beach time ahead :)

    In terms of recommendations, when we went last time, we loved Cenote Azul and the Yal-Ku Lagoon in Akumal.

    At about 1 minute in, there is an interesting first hand account of how Tulum effects his energy levels.

    Also I found that Cristal bottled water is sourced from cenote system so it makes a good choice while down there as it should be D depleted.

    After visiting many cenotes, Sac Actun is by far my favorite. It's the coldest (and most expensive).
