Besides "drinking and diving". Please help this is an educational joint.

I'll go first:

Drift through an ancient channel hand cut by the Maya thousands of years ago while gazing into the crystal clear water (as it was and has been for milleniums) as a chance encounter may occur with dolphins, manatees and crocodiles.

next...........

Rent a small hobie cat for a few hours and gently sail up and down the AC coast line. You'll lie in the sun while the waves splash you from time to time, wave at the boats that go by and look for the rays gliding underneath you in the clear turquoise sea... if the sun gets too hot, stop and hop off for a dip. What great way to sight see. mobunny cool

This is one of those exceptions to the rule. We went with Alphonso on the Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley trip. Check out the snorkling link from the main AC page and follow the links to the Shark Ray pics. Alphonso is a fantastic guide, and the sharks and rays swim right up to him.

OK, guys - "nothing" was too strong. But other than bars & the like and water-based activities there isn't a lot. That's not a criticism, at least not in the modern sense of that word, it's just stating what to us is obvious but to a new visitor may be far from obvious. You'd be surprised how many new visitors coming diving email us to ask where they can rent a car.

Breakfast on the beach. Very nice.

Exploring in your golf cart. Lotsa fun

Walking on the beach, looking at the waves break over the reef. Lovely.

KathyA- yes, yes, yes!! And he knows alot about everything you see. I couldn't retain half the info. We went out twice with Alphonso, once for Hol Chan at night - very cool snorkle.

P2 - It's a small island; if you don't like water activities, why would you choose to vacation on an island that doesn't present itself as having lots of other things to do besides dive/snorkle, fish, eat and drink? I am not trying to be argumentative. It's just that we did our research and got exactly what we were expecting and wanted. There were no surprises except for good ones. If I am going to spend the money for a vacation and use vacation time, I'm going to do the research or not go until I have the info I need. I know lots of people I would not recommend AC to because they don't like sand or don't want to get their hair and makeup messed up. I say leave the makeup home and wear a hat!

Sorry about the ramble - I was a good little girl scout - guess I still am!
