AKUMAL, MEXICO           

     I discovered Akumal many years ago on trip to Cancun and was deeply struck by the beautiful and  tranquil setting in this tiny little seaside village!  It’s two bays with white sand, palm lined beaches were just begging to be painted!  After a few visits, I started putting together a group each year to share this great place while learning the art of visual journaling in watercolor Observing the beauty of the place through the act of painting allows one a greater appreciation of all its wonders, large and small! Just imagine sitting on a pristine white sand beach, painting under a palm tree; having happy hour under a palapa; Returning to your home away from home: a gorgeous private villa on the ocean with pool and gardens! That’s the trip in a nutshell with a few wild nuts thrown in when desired : *Snorkeling on the reef right off our shores * Visit to a Mayan ruins  * Yalku Lagoon * Sea Kayaking * Cenote swimming *   Open to beginners and advance artist. Spouses and friends welcome too.
