I've been on Weight Watchers for about six months. During that time, we've taken three island vacations. Also during those vacation, I have completely ignored the fact that I am on WW. Ate whatever I wanted and drank the local beers. After each trip I had only gained about a pound. The secret seems to be walk, walk, walk. Early morning walks on the beach, walk to restaurants. Walk around the town you're visiting.

When we were in San Pedro in June (pre WW), we had great salads at the restaurant at the Sun Breeze Hotel, ??Blue Water Grill. (I've loaned all my books out.) Also, I'd bet you can get point friendly meals at the Thai restaurant. And grilled fish is available every where. I was pleasantly surprised to see that lots of restaurants serve baked potatoes. They can be point friendly if you don't put much butter and/or sour cream on them. Good variety of fruits for breakfast too.

A little less than three weeks until we're back in San Pedro, can't wait!!!! Jean

klcman: I'm on both diets..I eat only what both diets allow (at the same time) and I haven't lost any weight at all. I want my money back.

Papi's diner is very reasonably priced. It has fish and chicken that is very tasty, and what I liked about it is they always serve steamed vegetables. Brocolli, carrots, cauliflower, etc. I was able to find salads at most restuarants, but rarely the steamed veggies. So try Papi's diner. His lobster is to die for.
The best salads by far were at Sweet Basil's. But somebody said it was sold????? Does that mean it's not there anymore???? frown

Here is the beauty of WW: Order your lunch, dinner as usual (avoid fried foods) and split the portions in half. You can eat almost anything on WW by doing that. There are also bonus points each week. Tell her to eat modestly half the time and eat freely for special dinners. Then as Jean said - plan a nice walk down the beach and earn activity points.

The only area I cannot help you with is alcohol. I fear there is not much you can do about that if you drink.

It is a vacation - so I say dont worry about the diet for a week - relax and enjoy.

I was on weightwatchers while visiting AC last May. I came home and weighed in several pounds less. So the answer is yes, you can find great food for few points.

I'm with Debbie on Papi's diner. Great food, fresh veggies. You can't go wrong with seafood as long as it isn't fried.

FYI - I am now a lifetime member (means I have made my weight goal and kept it off for over 6 weeks) and have lost a whopping 112lbs (for those who knew me before, I am a shadow of my former self) laugh

Gela, wow you have won the battle. You go girl.

Key is walking in San Pedro, do not take the taxi or rent golf cart.
