P&J: You are not the only one that still envisions themselves sipping rum punch or a belikin with your toes in the sand! I've been to AC two years in a row both times in June. Things were AWESOME both times
. There are many threads that will be able to fill you in on any changes (and there have been a lot in the 2 years I've been going) that have occurred since you were last there.
As for your para-sailing mishap; I thought things like that only happened to my husband. He was up on a very windy day (not in Belize) the tow rope broke and the clip smacked him in the forehead. He landed in the water and was towed by the chute/wind up again and across a busy street. No more para-sailing that day.
Back to AC: I personally can not wait to return. Hope you will be able to make the journey with your child soon. We travel with ours, he is 13 and absolutely loves it. In the mean time, get your fix by reading the board and chatting with others.
