Loved reading of your trip...Wow, sounds almost like my last time, brings all the memories back again. I totally agree w/the vendors for dinner (my personal fav), lobster omelets @ Lily's, Cholo's and Dready smile The night snorkel was awesome! And I absolutely love Geraldo & Justo and the cat. Glad you had such a great time!!
