I want to hear your most hilarious OMG! moment on vacation!

I want some good laughs people! yours or someone elses! i will go first. we returning to PLAYA this June, we first visited in December 2009 and stayed at the RIU PALACE MEXICO. While it was a lovely hotel we mainly hung out at the RIU TEQUILA and the RIU YUCATAN at night and met more people our age (30-40). one night we met a couple whom we decided to have dinner with and sat down to have drinks with at the RIU YUCATAN. After about a half hour about talking about where we come from, occupations, etc, the wife tells me how she "sneaks" into THE RIU PALACE MEXICO ( she isnt supposed to be allowed in a PALACE ) by hiding her different colored wrist band with her purse or sweater. i kinda started to feel uncomfortable, but my hubby was chatting with her husband, so while i was trying to change the subject, she said she had to use the ladies room. so then after making small talk, the wife comes out of the bathroom comes back to our table and says " look at the stuff i got to take home out of the bathroom! i dont have to buy souveniers for the kids back at home!!!" i was mortified as i saw her take little turtle, iguanas and other mexican trinket decorations (that were on the bathroom sink ) out of her pockets to show her husband! my hubby and i gave each other that look and we high tailed it outta there! OMG! OKAY PEOPLE, let me hear what you got !!!!

OK, you want drunk-in-a-foreign-land stories? I spent a month in Colombia when I was 20, visiting the family of a foreign exchange student who had stayed with us for a year. On New Year's Eve we were in Pandi, a small farming town in the mountains outside of Bogota. My exchange sister's brothers introduce me to Aguardiente, an anise-flavored beverage (similar to Sambucco) that they said no Norte Americano could drink. I finished an entire bottle, along with many other beverages.

I vaguely recall that the walk back up the mountain road to the family farm involved me on my hands and knees at one point. My accommodations consisted of an outdoor hammock, hung directly above the table where the family took their meals. I climbed in, only to waken a few hours later, incredibly thirsty. I found a bottle of Coke but no opener. Desparate, I whacked the bottle against a tree to break off the top, gritted my teeth and drank it down in one long chug. I was back in hammock within moments.

I was embarrassed to see the family eating below me when I finally slept it off, and by the light I could tell it wasn't breakfast. I slinked into the chair next to my exchange sister and asked under my breath why she hadn't woken me up earlier. She put down her fork, looked at me, and said: "I try to wake you up for breakfast. I try to wake you up for lunch. I try to wake you up for dinner. I try to wake you up for breakfast. I try to wake you up for lunch. Now is dinner again. Are you hungry?" It was dinner time, January 2!

After spending a large part of the day drinking at one of the bars, making new friends and general socializing of the liquid kind! We decided we better go back to the room for a nap and rest before dinner....my bf and i staretd walking back and due to his inability to walk in a straight line he fell into the swimming pool (fully clothed).....as he fell in i shreaked causing everyone to look at the fully clothed idiot that fell in the pool......the water sobered him up, so he swam over to the pool bar and got a beer before getting out.....everyone cheered

You have to picture this one. My husband and I stayed in an emerald at the Valentin. Huge jacuzzi with windows that are mirrored on the outside so people can't see in. It takes a while to fill. I was putting shower gel in under the faucet but, there weren't enough bubbles. I kept adding more and my husband was using his foot to stir them up a bit. He was wondering if the mirrored windows work in the evening so luckily he went out on the balcony and sure enough he could see me in all my glory adding more shower gel. He came in and we closed the blind and sat down. When he turned off the water the jets went on automatically. Imagine what happens with the bubbles! We had to jump up and raise the 3 blinds enough that the fabric wouldn't get wet but, people couldn't see in. Our drinks were full of bubbles. The votive candles were crackling and I thought they were going to burst. We were laughing so hard we were choking on bubbles. So much for romance.

We stayed at Xcaret, and changed rooms mid vacation. The new room did not have a TV remote control, so hubby called for a new one - "Si Senior - we will bring one right up". Well about a half an hour later - we forgot all about the zapper, and while we were getting busy in the shower, there is a knock at the door hubby yells come in and leave it on the table. I'm mortified as the bathroom door is wide open, so I rush out naked to close the door before anyone sees us (me) naked. Forgot to mention that I was holding the hand held shower head and the water was on full tilt, and that I brought it out with me. (Must have been thinking I'd spray him so he couldn't see me naked). One minor flood, a new zapper and about 30 min of non-stop laughter - this story never gets old. We now refer to the Mexican shower stalls with the seat as "Sexico Showers"

These are great! My now hubby and i had only been dating for about a month when we decided to go to Cancun at the last minute. the only flight out at the last minute was leaving at 4pm, we get to the airport and our flight gets delayed for 3 hours..so we go to the airport lounge...many cocktails later we finally make it to Mexico around 10pm. Should have really just gone to bed at this point but since we had just started dating wanted to show what a "trooper" I am.

We end up at the resort bar and I am naturally a friendly person but lay on a couple of layers of Tequila, then everyone one I meet is my new best friend, this couple sitting next to us is chatting us up and we are getting on very well, then they suggest we all go swimming..it's probably midnight at this point..I am like yeah swimming lets go how fun...my then BF does not seem as enthusiastic as i am but in my stupor I am sure I did not notice...I stumble out of the bar and start to head out for a swim.. My Bf pulls me aside and says..you realize they are swingers don't you? I am like naww there just really nice! But at this point I am like ok lets go back to room and go to sleep....Yeah they were swingers! We had to duck them the rest of our trip!!

We had gone to Puerto Vallarta and arrived in the late evening. The next day we were to hit the ground running to see the sights. Hubby was scheduled to go scuba diving. My niece and I along with our 4 year old was scheduled to go on a tour to San Sebastian. We took a taxi from our hotel not realizing that the place we needed to be was only about 3 blocks away to go on our tour.

As we get to our destination to go on the tour. I am paying the taxi driver. My 15 year old niece and son have already gotten out of the taxi. Just was the taxi pulls away, I look at my son and ask where is your backpack?

The look of panic on his face as tears beginning to roll down his face. He then starts to cry because his most beloved "stuffy beanie dog" is in the backpack that was left in the taxI. We have 10 minutes until our tour bus arrives. My husband is still at our hotel and not answering his cell phone.

I literally try to run after the taxi but by this time all the yellow taxis look the same. I then run back to the hotel to the front desk. And ask them if they can inquire as to which taxi company they had called for us. I then finally get ahold of my husband who says he will go to the taxi office. He is sent to the wrong taxi office and then has to go to another one.He does finallly find the taxi driver that had our backpack.

All in the name of very faded and very well loved little stuffed animal that my son has had since he was born. And yes, we have several of the same stuffies named Sniffer but the other ones were in Oregon.

Oh the things we do as parents for our children! And yes my son still travels with Sniffer. That dog has been on 3 trips to Mexico, all over Oregon, Washington, and California and Las Vegas over the years.

One of my funny story's was from this last trip we took in Feb. Sorry men, this may be a tmi post !!

My daughter and I went on a Snorkeling tour to Akumal and had a great time and met some nice people. On the way back to our resort they were dropping other people off at their resort. The one couple got out of the van and started walking up the steps to their resort and I just happened to glance at the wrong spot and the lady had a tampon cord hanging from you know where !!

She was only wearing a bikini with no coverup. I was mortified !!

So happy it was not me !!

I am a widow. I was staying at a popular resort in Playacar. A young man came in the room every day at the same time for three days asking me if I wanted "serviso." Every day I said, "No, I don't want a beer (cervesa) ;I just want towels and water. It was only when he came in and closed the blinds on the third day that I realized what he was asking me. I wonder how many cabana boys actually make money asking women if they want "serviso."
