Atticus Reviewed by Allan Cogan

Atticus Cody is a 67 year old Colorado rancher. He’s a very successful straight-shooting kind of guy. He has a son, Scott, who is a painter, evidently talented.

When the story opens, Atticus has learned about Scott’s death, by suicide, in a place called Resurrección, near Cancun.

Busing From Cancun to Chichen Itza Discussion Thread Forum

I was wondering what type of bus service there is between Cancun and Chichen Itza, and if that service accomodates luggage. I'm thinking that I can possibly catch the tour bus from Chichen Itza to Club Oasis Akumal. Has anyone done this before? I would like to avoid renting a car. Also, I know there are several nice hotels at Chichen Itza, any suggestions? read more
