About the author posted by on March 28, 2009

I am a retired American living in Cancún, Mexico with my wife and our 3 dogs. One of them is a Yorkie -Poo we brought with us from the USA. The other two we rescued from the street here in  Cancún. We like sharing  our adventures in paradise with our readers. We hope that you find our blog interesting and informative. Perhaps if you ever consider living or visiting Cancún you might find some useful information here.

We invite you leave your comments so we can see how were doing.

Thank you……..CancúnTom, and CancúnSuz

    Ricardo, I have only been to Akumal a couple of times to snorkel and enjoy a few cocktails beach side. They have been embroiled in controversy over the access to the community and those wishing to charge a toll. Check for the situation before visiting Akumal.

  • Ricardo Mendoza says:

    Hi Tom,
    I was wondering if you had any recommendations about living in Akumal vs Cancun.

    Hey Cancún Tom and Cancún Suz! I came across your site because I have been looking for oil painting classes I could take this summer in Cancun. I’m an American citizen and my parents are from Mexico so Spanish is decent. I would really appreciate some more information on this painting class you attend. Maybe I could get an instructor’s email? Thank you either way!

    Hi Tom: Thanks for sharing your video link for me to use on our facebook site. Great web page! I am including it on my favourites.

  • Brian NJ says:

    Glad to see you both are still living the dream. (yeah I’m jealous). Last night across the local bar I see a guy who could be your twin. I left him your web address. I’m sure he had a big laugh later. Love coming to your web site daily. It makes me think of where I’d rather be. Keep up the great work!

  • CancunTom says:

    Sorry Lynn,
    Don’t know anything about that. Have a great time.

  • Lynn Chandler says:

    I just found your website and wanted to ask you for some advice. Our family is coming down to the Royal Sands May 8-15. My son, a soon to be graduate student in herpetology, is wanting to go “herping” in that area. Do you have any suggestions, any tour guides, any groups he could join? I really don’t want him to wander around alone.
    Thanks very much.
    Lynn Chandler

    Great Site. Thanks for the reviews. We come to Cancun every year in January since 2005 and a few times we also came down in April. We stay only at Royal Sands and this year we are trying (2) weeks at Phase 1 of the Royal Sands. We are also bringing a Cancun Tom with us and would love to have you and Suzi over to the sands with us some time. I know you could help us with new places to try for supper. Usually we eat at Captains Cove or at any Royal Resort Restaurants.
