Making my first trip to AC in May. Been reading about shorts/t-shirt/barefeet. Staying at the Sundiver, and getting some ideas for dinning, and some of the restaurants, at least from their websites, appear to be a bit more formal than casual. Are shorts ok everywhere? What about T-shirts, I would think some of the restaurants, would require a little more?

T-shirts will do for any place on the island. Casual is the watchword.

OK guys, I'll let you in on a secret - even on vacation some of us females like to see our men looking swell. Part of being together in paradise is falling in love again. Restaurants don't require dressing up, but you'd be amazed what might happen after dinner if you do.
PS - by "dressing up" I mean docker-style shorts, a shirt with buttons and clean hair (shoes not required).

I'm with you, Diane. I like to dress for dinner while on vacation. I plan to take a few sundresses when I visit AC in April.

As I will be staying at Portofino, we will most likely have most of our dinners there. Will I look way out of place wearing a sundress?

I'm happy to leave the shoes at home!

Sundresses are perfecto. Also tank tops and tropical sarongs.
There are a few dynamite women's clothing stores here (fun beachy feminine things) - try a visit to Mambo Chill for starters.

Alright!! Sunshine, palm trees, snorkeling, rum drinks, and SHOPPING!! Sounds like paradise to me.

I especially like the "no shoes" idea. Can I go into any shop or restaurant shoeless? Are the streets in town clear of any broken glass, etc., that I won't need shoes when going into SP?

Can't wait to get to AC.

commmon signs on doors-

"No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem" - although I think the former applies only to those of the male gender (despite what Toad might wish for) wink

I actually feel better and "I" think look better in a sundress and no shoes. However I always wear slippers (flipflops) while there for many reasons. eek
