Well, we leave in less than 36 hours. Since reading this board for the past few months, we have learned so much information from all of you. We consolidated all of your opinions into our top 10 list. While we are in AC, we will NOT forget the following:
10. Pack Safe Sea and Deet and cover even where the sun doesn't shine.
9. Rent a gas powered golf cart and explore the island.
8. Go to BC's BBQ on Sunday and meet other boarders shouting their names.
7. No shirt, no shoes, no problem.
6. Make a day trip to Caye Caulker.
5. Go to Elvi's, Caliente, Casa Picasso, Capricorn's, Ruby's, Estel's, Rasta Pasta, Blue Water Grill, Taste of Thailand, and visit all of the street vendors. (Okay, that means eating every 2 hours the entire trip, but we think we can do it!).
4. Have Belikins delivered to the room prior to arrival.
3. Save room for drinks at the Palapa Bar, Fido's, Barefoot Iguana, Jaguar's, Big Daddy's, and Coconuts. (Yes, we will be impaired most of our visit, but we owe it to all of you!).
2. Pack half of what you think you need and leave cute sandals at home!
1. I'm sure you are not surprised - Fish, BBQ, and snorkel for a full day with Capt. Bicho!!

If we have not learned our lessons for this trip, please remind us within the next 24 hours or it will be too late! Thank you so much for all of the information and we look forward to reporting back after we return.

11. Take extra underwear, especially bras.
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

seashell: I am curious as to why you suggest extra bras. They don't seem to me like ones who whould be doing a 60"s like protest.
But judging from their #3, they might want to bring extra panties. wink

Speakin of impaired, another question......what is the law down there concerning drinkin and drivin a golf cart? Where I live, you can get a DUI on a bicycle. My neighbor got arrested DUI for drinkin a beer while cutting grass on a ridin mower, in his front yard!

Relax as soon as you hit the ground and leave your hurries and worries at home. Meet the people, and eat things you don't normally eat. wander around a lot and see stuff. Smile at everyone. Don't waste any opportunities to enjoy yourself, you can get drunk anywhere in the world and you can sleep when you're old.
Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

It is against the San Pedro town ordinance to drink alcoholic beverages while driving a golf cart. It is also not the best idea to drive one while intoxicated. They have routine, random checks. Most frequently on Coconut Drive in front of the TMM offices at the lane that goes back to BC's. You must also have your drivers license with you.

Here's an older thread that has some more suggestions, but in particular explains the extra undies suggestion:
