I agree. We just returned on 11/5. Some resorts are not open yet and some are not fully operational, i.e. ours did not have cable TV (but who cares?) and the pool was not ready until the day we left (of course!). Many places are still without phone service but other than that, you will find most all the bars and restaurants are in full swing, the diving and tours are up and running and besides lots of debris in places and still many displaced families, all is well on La Isla Bonita. The people are as friendly and charming as ever -- very thankful and basically undaunted by their recent thrashing.
