Archery in Mexico // Akumal Beach Resort

Beginning of December my parents took Steve and I with them to Mexico!!!  We spent our vacation at Akumal Beach Resort... and guess what???? had a chance to shoot archery in Mexico!

My dad had talked about archery at the resort from one of their past trips (they had visited this resort before) so we were pretty excited to check it out.  When we arrived, we found out it actually had been shut down and closed because the staff instructor was no longer working at the resort! :(  A couple days later my dad actually convinced one of the staff to get out the archery gear and a couple bows for us and we were able to shoot for a couple hours (since we already knew what we were doing) as long as we kept quiet and on the down low. :)

Here's a few photos from our vacation in Mexico and our chance to use the archery range.  The equipment wasn't the greatest, it was a bit neglected and the bows had been left out in the heat, the draw length was too short for Steve, but we made the best of it ...and now we can say "we've shot archery in Mexico". Hah! :)

They will however be rebuilding an area of the resort and adding a new archery range... so we'll have to come back again!
