    Ok…here’s part two of our trip report.

    As I said before we were at Temptations for two weeks and we met a ton of people…..both through the forum and not. This is one of the main reasons we return every year…the people we meet and the staff. So here are the highlights….

    The Cancuncare Booze Cruise……this is the cruise organized by Steve (Hi Steve…it was great meeting you and Janet). The cruise was awesome. We met Steve in the lobby of the hotel on the 22nd (or should I say outside the lobby of the hotel…we were all waiting inside but Steve did not have a wristband so he could not go in….but I checked outside and he was waiting for us at the agreed time (a little nervous because he thought no one was there) We were then transported to the dock where the catamaran was waiting for us. We boarded and the festivities began. I think there were around 28 people and the crew quickly had the drinks flowing. Most of us had met in the pool previously but there were some that we had not met before. The boat itself was quite nice…lots of room…separate bathrooms for men and women…it stayed afloat…not much more I can say about the boat itself. The crew was fantastic. Once everyone had the never empty glass of liquor…everyone was given snorkeling gear for the first stop on the cruise. The cat anchored and everyone went snorkeling (almost everyone…..if you wanted to remain on board that was fine) the water was clear and we snorkeled part of the reef…it was good exercise as the current was quite strong….not sure how long we snorkeled though (45 min???)….kinda lost track of time….but it was back on board and back to sailing and drinking….it was quite warm that day so everyone was glad for the refreshing swim….our glasses were filled again and again..….we then sailed to North Beach on Isla Mujares. The Boat dropped us at the dock where there was an open bar waiting for us….We played a few games on the beach(where I lost in a beer drinking contest and had to renounce my Canadian citizenship) and then either relaxed in the shade or went swimming in the beautiful water off the beach. A lunch buffet was provided which I thought was quite good and we all had a bit to eat before we were off on the next portion of the tour. At this point one of the crew took whoever wanted to go shopping into town for a shopping tour or you could rent golf carts and tour the island with Steve….most people opted for the golf carts and we had quite a caravan. The carts were located right next to the beach and waiting for us. After a quick rules of the road lecture by Steve (this becomes important later) we were off…. We shared a cart with Sue and Jeremy (aka Jimmy Johnson) We toured through the downtown area and then made a pit stop at a small grocery for staples (beer and cigarettes). You can drink and drive while on the golf carts and we had a great time. We stopped at a couple of the lookouts and were awarded with fantastic views of the Caribbean ocean. One lookout had iguana’s running about…we continued on and drove around the whole island. It was nice to see and the scenery was awesome. While waiting for some of the caravan to catch up….Steve’s golf cart decided to take a closer look at the ditch and got stuck (remember the lecture LOL) but we managed to lift it back on the road and we were off…..once the golf cart tour was done we had a short walk to the dock where the boat was waiting for us….again the crew quickly had us all outfitted with liquor and we began our trip back…..The cruise back was a lot of fun…there was dancing, singing, bodyshots, a strip show by one of the crew, and just a real good time. There was not enough wind for the spinnaker swing…but we stopped and a bunch of us just went swimming…the boat then returned us to the dock at Temptations….It was a great day and I think everyone had a really good time…I know I did. I have been on both cruises to the island…the one done at the hotel and the one done by Steve and in my opinion Steve’s wins hands down….It is well organized….you get to meet the people from the forum you have been chatting with….Steve and Janet are great hosts. The hotel trip is a little more on your own..once you get to the island..the golf carts are not organized and it seemed like there was more of a push to shop at the market they chose. I highly recommend Steve’s trip if you get the opportunity.

    We went out to a few of the clubs while we were there and we always go with the hotel….they provide you with the entrance fee, open bar, bus ride to the club, no waiting in line, and a vip area in the club….all you need to do is find your own way back to the hotel when you decide to call it a night…or a morning as the case may be….Coco Bongo’s is a must do if you have never been…We have gone six times now and never tire of the show. Coco Bongo’s is part Vegas stage show/part dance club and always a really good time. (Larry and Lori, Roy and Joanne, Titsy and her sister, and their Canadian girlfriends) Got to partying with Jose and T (it was her last night out and being from the same town we had to fill her in with the goings on back home) Got in at 5:30 am that night….We also went to the City and Dady’O…this was our first time at the City and it was a good time also (drank all night with DJ Rafi and Jose a couple from the UK and Titsy and the Canadian girls…got back at 4:30 that night) although it is more of a regular dance club they do put on a couple of small shows. The club itself is huge but with the VIP area reserved for us there was no problem with seating. At this club and Dady’O there were bottles of vodka/tequila/and jugs of beer on our tables and we just mixed our own drinks. The service at the City and Dady’O was great we had dedicated waiters and they took very good care of us. We had been to Dady’O before but Jeremey and Sue won open bar at the casino night contest so we haaaad to join them (our arms were twisted pretty hard LOL). We also went to Senor Frogs (I won open bar there during the day at the pool for the paper airplane contest) We started out the night with a bunch of people from the booze cruise going but most of the them became ill (I think I mentioned before a lot of people seemed to get this same ailment that put them out of action for a couple of days) but we did have a couple of people join in and we had a great time (Selena and Dale.. you guys can dance!!) Lalo was a blast and we met one of the old entertainment girls there as well. We always have a good time at the Frog and go every year….If you haven’t been it is a dance/restaurant/bar/club. The have contests (wet T/and others) good music/ a waterslide that empties into the lagoon. We took cabs back to the hotel after all our club nights usually $10 to 15 depending on what time of the morning it was (at 4 or 5 in the am you don’t really want to barter). We also had to go for pizza at Domino’s after Dady’O along with half the tourists in Cancun. Cheeseburgers at the hotel every other night!!

    We participated in a lot of the games at the sexy pool and in Nice shoes….and again I won’t go into huge detail because I don’t want to ruin it for those who haven’t played but here are some of our titles for the two weeks

    Horseshoe Champion (Twice) Craig and I also beat Chino’s but it was.nt a tourneament day. I also beat Omar one day to his total surprise….but was’nt able to beat Chinos again…lost 30 bucks to him during the week but I am sure he cheats LOL. Poor Marcus was robbed in a couple of our games…..

    Paper airplane Champion…..won open bar to senor Frog’s for that

    Crazy Darts Champion…..I Look soooooo hot in a yellow thong LOL

    Karen was Miss Humper….she humped out the Gorgeia girls (Selena and Tammy)(Sorry ladies ....Canadian’s know there humping)

    Played in the Love and marriage, Trivia, bodyshots, bellyflop, beer drinking and other games but were beat out……if we wer’nt playing the games we were cheering people on….Ironman Marcus and Mr. Temptations Jeremy were also proud of there wins. Karen also tried the sensual fitness class and now has a new respect for those pole dancers!! She was also treated to a massage by Chinos when she was the only one who showed up for the stretching class. She also did the water areobics all week and the dirty spanish class

    We also played Wild Tequila Vollyball twice and had a lot of fun. Karen was on the losing team (Chino's) both time and had to suffer throught the ice water. We also had a good laugh at Marcus after Jemma threw his swimsuit in the ocean.

    I played basketball and other sports as well....just to break up the drinking a little.

    We had a good time in Nice Shoes during the shows Casino night (nice Crown Bag Jeremy) was fun. Did'nt win a lot of booty bucks...but managed to bid on a hat. The Quest managed to leave Karen without a skirt/panties for most of the night and it was fun participating...Mario had a good time looking throught the pictures on my Camera (I reallly thought I deleted those LOL). Marcus was our captain the second week and he and Jemma kept our team in the game...but we lost by a point. The new Dance shows were really good and Kareoke night was a blast. They held it in Nice shoes one week and the Alternative the next week...I think it was better in the Alternative a little more intimate.

    I did a few of the watersports (don't forget about those guys (Jose, Louis, and Manuel are great) took out a kayak for a couple of hours and Karen did some windsurfing.

    We had a great time in Mexico at Temptaions again and will return at our first opportunity. The staff was fantastic and the people we met were great. A shout out to those whose names I remember and apologies to those I forget....Sue and Jeremy, Marcus and Jemma, Roy and Joanne, Lori and Larry, Selena and Dale, Jim and Chanda, Matt and Tammy, Craig and Emmy, John and Donna, Duane and Brenda, Nick and Deb, Thats Me (Renaldo), Wayne and Jeanie, Tunalion, mcajun, funlover, cancunfunlovers, Dave and Lanetta, mas4fun, Roger and Barbie. A big hello and thank you to the staff....Chinos, Lalo, Jose, Louis, T, Yankee, Omar, Daddy Mario, Manuel Pablo, Oliver, Viktor, Javier, Daniel, Herbert, Ladilslao, Yesidia, Gilbert, and so many others that made our stay fantastic.

    Well a little long so I'll end it here...will get some pics up as time permits, PM us if you want some of yourself and we'll do our best to get them to you....Take care everyone and we'll see you next trip.....Wade and Karen

    WOW!!!!!!! Great trip report...We had a blast as well and were very glad to have met you. Who knows maybe we'll be there again when you return as well in the future.

    By the way Wade, if your situtation is still there, John is still there if you need him...LOL :lol: :lol:

    That's what going there is all about, meeting great people from all over. That's why we're heading back this Sept. (Hey, Cal & Michelle).

    For those of you who have never been, every word they said is true about the staff, entertainment and the people that go.

    Take Care and hope next time our dates run into each other. Look forward to seeing pictures when you put them up.

    John & Donna

    What an amazing 2 weeks! Hopefully we'll have as much fun during our 5 day stay (T minus 39 hours before we take-off), and maybe win a few t-shirts as well...
