Gaelen...loved your trip report!! We too loved Mango's and Fido's. I too sympathize about screaming kids poolside. It can ruin a romantic moment, you're right. The funny thing is, we thought that AC/San Pedro was not as developed as we thought it would be. We thought it was going to be like Cancun, but were pleasantly surprised. You're right though, it will probably get more developed as years go by...sigh! We first went to CAye caulker, but it was too darn hot (many trees had been knocked down from hurricane, and you couldn't find ANY shade!) Also, we couldn't find any decent accomodations in our price range. On AC, we stayed at Ruby''s and LOVED IT! And the folks we met there and at Mango's were awesome! Yes, I agree about the dogs; it was even worse on the mainland. I guess my point is that whether you enjoy a particular place is so much based on luck...who you meet, luck with accomodations, weather, etc. We would definelty go back in a heartbeat!
