Bet there will not be too many days that you will not be able to snorkel. If your trip is canceled they will go the next day. No Problem.
We stay next door at Caribe Island and have been in the condos at Sunset. They are great and the resort has a great pool. Plus you can use the bar/restaurant.
Have a great time.

We just came back on Friday and did experience some of the wind you've heard about. It wasn't as bad as everyone made it out to be. On the really hot, sunny days you'll appreciate the breeze! As far as snorkeling goes, we did postphone our trip one day (since we had a whole week of chances ahead of us). We did go on a kind of breezy day to Hol Chan & Shark Ray Alley -- the visibility was perfect, no problems with currents or views. One recommendation is don't wait till the end of your trip to go on a snorkeling excursion. It was so amazing, but we waited till the end. If I would have known how much fun we'd have we would have gone two-to-three more times!

Hey merrymex, I'm right there with you in the yipeeeeeeee department. I only have one more day to wait. I wish I could get more excited but I'm trying to get all loose ends here at work tied up before I leave. I told my boss he was interfering with my pre-trip excitement. So I have to sneak on the board here and there this afternoon to get my anticipation going. Have a great trip!!!
