Happy Guest Comments on their Cell Phone Rental Experience

This just in from some fine folks who needed a USA telephone number while visiting Merida to check out (and ultimately invest in) some real estate. I was happy to help out and got them their phone and US telephone number for the duration of their trip. Here's what they wrote:

I highly recommend renting a cell phone for your trip to the Merida area from William Lawson. We rented from him during our 10 day stay in February and could not have been more pleased. We reserved the phone with them prior to the trip and he met us at our hotel when we arrived to deliver the phone and answer any questions we had about usage. He came to us to when we were ready to return it. The price was great (calls were 25 cents a minute), it had a US phone number making it easy for our family in the US to contact us, and the customer service was outstanding. A great experience for a great trip!

So, if you need a phone for an upcoming trip for business or pleasure, let me know and we'll set you up with one for as long as you need.The advantages are:
  • a) easy to dial from USA or Canada as it is a US number
  • b) free to call from the USA and parts of Canada as it is a US number
  • c) cheaper than pay as you go plans on local phones (25 cents vs 60 cents or more per minute for long distance calls to the US)
  • d) complete flexibility in that you can rent it for 5 days, 5 weeks or 5 months (5 is a random number, it doesn't have to be 5!!)

Dzibilchaltun Group Tour

Today, a group tour of Dzibilchaltun with some friendly Canadians who have spent some time in Progreso these last few weeks. Their "all-inclusive" tour included a comfortable air conditioned van and driver, door to door service, all entrance fees to the site, the best guide in Dzibilchaltun, plenty of drinks (including a chilled bottle of Chilean Chardonnay) and of course, my fabulous company. This particular tour lasted 4 hours.

Below are some photos of this latest William Lawson tour, now available for larger groups as well as one on one private excursions.

Happy Guest Comments!

Some guests from Tennessee had this to say about their recent excursion to the Chunkanaan cenotes:

Well, here we are back in the States after another fun adventure in Cancun, what a great time we had everywhere. Can't wait to return. Thank you so much for such a great day, the write-up is fantastic! You are a great writer. You made our day memorable, as you can tell we all have different levels of adventure in us and the day was perfect for all of us. We will surely pass your info on to anyone we speak with who is visiting the area.

Thanks again and hopefully our paths will cross again soon!

The Marathon Puuc Route Tour

Starting in Merida at 8 AM, TSG (The Software Guy) and I headed out into the Puuc. First stop, Uxmal, where he took a number of photos and had a guide show him the sights of the site. After about 2 hours there, we visited all the ruins along the Puuc route and had a great time exploring the jungle routes. Especially interesting for me was the Temple of the Witch (previous video post) which I had never seen before.

Here are some of the photos taken by Yours Truly. Enjoy!
