Hello all, I've been lurking around here for a bit and have had most of my questions answered just by reading old posts. I'm going to be heading down to AC on the 18th of Aug. for some much needed rest and relaxation after almost 7 months in the desert. Gonna be staying for about a week, maybe more, not sure yet. I've read that August is the "mauger" season, and that there is very little rain. Is this true?
Also, I'd really like to plan in one of those jungle zipline tours and some of the Mayan tours. Are these available on the Island, or is it something I'll have to make a day of to go to the mainland, or another island?
I also want to do some snorkeling on the reef. Do you have to have any special certifications to do this, or anything like that, or do the tour guides take care of it?
Now on to the important questions: Booze and unattached women
I'm assuming that the bars on the island are pretty well stocked, but can you get most drinks you'd find in the States? Or is it pretty much Beliken beer and local Rum (not that it matters much to me)?
After 7 months straight teetotaling in the desert, I'm looking to kick back and relax and just enjoy myself, and maybe find some company (preferably the bikini wearing kind) while I'm there.
Anybody who answers my questions, first round's on me.
