Well, What a great trip.
San Pedro..it is a 3rd world country, dont go with an attitude. The nices people anywhere! Always felt safe. Reminds me of the old west with it's dirt roads and dirt floors. SSOOO many restaurants and shops. Could get there by golf cart but I wouldn't...Take water ferry $10 a ride or catch a ride with Mo if you can. Can only guarantee a ride with Mo at 5 Pm if not to early for you. Did I mention that Mo is the BEST!!!
Portofino..What a view! On one of the best beaches, no you can't really swim unless you walk to end of pier but you won't care about that. The resort is simple and very well maintained. All 11 rooms are on the beach with unbelievable views. It has a nice cozy rest. and bar. Try the Blue beef or pasta with alfrado chicken!! Desserts mmmmm key lime pie, chocolate cake or apple custard mmm mmm good.
Activities..good book or Monica will have 2 or 3 outside options for you, all billed to your room, just show up at the dock at the prearranged time and your off for diving, fishing, snorkeling, ruins what ever you want from 2hours to all day!
I have been many places in this small world. Never have I bonded with the people and staff of a resort as I did here.
Staff.. Sherri(gm) was so nice, she gave me toys to play with Sadie! Monica (fdesk) if shes not married to Rafael by the next time I come, I will marry her, shes the best! Ms. Cynthia (AM Chef) will let you try the staff meal and greet you at 6am with coffee! The guys: Marcel, Marlin, Rafael and Elvi these guys are great, they look out for you and help in any way...always always with a smile!
Don't forget Mo, hes a stand up guy, I miss him already.
Sandra(A Belgium Beauty) is warm, friendly and a great host!
But the best staff member of Portofino is Sadie the wonder Lab. Sadie is truely the PR director there.
As you can see, The people really affected me. I miss them so much. Monica I love you!!!!
PS; Went out with BAD and they were great! Tracy, Craig and Chris were all very nice. Just a nice operation.
