Any "20 something" year olds? - 03/30/05 03:14 AM

Hey there! I'm heading down April 18 before my friend arrives April 20. Always up for exploring the town/nightlife/meeting people. We're both excited and ready to live it up! I'll have two days to pass the time til she gets there... Anyone else on a fun, friends, 'excited to be on the beach' type of trip?

Hey! where are you from? where are you staying? I am in my 20's, and there is plenty to do there without your friend with you. You will meet people easily.

Hello Ke! I am living in Philadelphia. Will you be there at the same time? Have you been there before? That's great to hear that there is a fun scene...what else can you tell me?

Hi! Yes, I have been there quite a bit, and will not be back by April. You will meet plenty of tourists or locals, depends on what you're looking to do/ what you're looking for. The nights you'll be there alone are slower-Monday-as the clubs are not opened on these nights but you'll have a great time going to the bars on the beach meeting both tourists and locals on Monday nights. I think Mon nights is Crazy Kuncks night, you can also go to BCs, Cannibals, and Fidos...

Travelqueen,

Happy you remember me, you made me smile this morning. I do owe you that hug. One day I know we'll end up there at the same time!

I used to be in my late 20's, many would say I'm still in my late teens - mentally.

Ok, let's all meet at Fido's Fri. night the 15th. Teens (over 18 smile ), 20's, 30's, 40's... any age! R&J, come a few days earlier, huh? You won't regret it, I promise!!!!

I like your initiative travelqueen but unfortunately I am taking the MCAT April 16th so coming a few days earlier might be a problem. I'm already getting on a plane as soon as I can afterwards and am looking forward to that Margarita on the beach! Sorry I'll miss you.

JFabes- great that you'll be there. Is it your first time?

Thanks for the advice ke- are the clubs only open on the weekends? I'm not picky between the bars or clubs (especially since I have never been there) so as long as people are out every night I'll be happy.

Also- any advice on a dive trip. I'm debating between the Blue Hole or just a local trip (which would leave beach time) for the day before my friend arrives. From what I have heard the Blue Hole is quite a trip...so is it really a MUST SEE?

Simon B- As long as you used to be in your 20's! no age discrimination from me!

R & J - yes this will be my first time to AC. As far as diving the blue hole others have expressed their opinions that it is a dive for the more experienced diver and that the dive really isnt all that exciting, just a really deep dive. I have decided that this trip I will skip the blue hole dive and just do a few more local dives.

Thank you for the info jfabes. It does sound like it is really far for what it is but the intensity of it is what is drawing me to it. I've been certified for awhile but I am leaning towards your plan and just might stick with the local dives. I'll have to see if my curiousity gets the best of me.

It's not intense, it's just deep. And it's a full day, by the time you're done--5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Two other dives that day and, if you're with Amigos, lunch and an hour or so to tour the Red-footed Booby Bird Sanctuary after a pretty durn good meal on the island at Half Moon Caye. The other two dives are worth the trip, even if you choose to skip the deep dive at the BH. Many do. The snorkeling, according to the part of my crew who've done it at the BH, is wonderful.

But don't push it. There are lots of good dives just barely offshore that will leave you with plenty of beach (let's say "surface", just for kicks wink )time on the island. The dive operators will take great care of you and let you maximize your time.

Trust us all, you'll love it.

R&J & jfabes (not to discriminate the non 20's smile ), where are you staying?

Cat Mo, I heard it's about 2 hours travel time out to BH. Is this so? I'm still deciding whether or not to go esp. since we will have little time on the island... but I'm sure I'll be back for round 4! smile

Re: Any "20 something" year olds? - 03/31/05 03:40 AM

Two hours out on a really good day. Normally 2.5 or 3, actually...plus getting from your dock to theirs and back. The 12 hours I noted earlier is pretty standard.

travelqueen I will be staying at bananna beach 13th - 23rd

Re: Any "20 something" year olds? - 03/31/05 03:54 AM

Very cool! We'll be staying closer in than that (possibly Spindrift), but will run into you at Fido's I'm sure. Also, and I'll probably start a new post, I hear there's a new club south of town, closer to you. Thinking of checking it out...

Re: Any "20 something" year olds? - 03/31/05 04:34 AM

Travelqueen- I'm at Ramons 18-25th. Not sure where that is in relation to Banana Beach and Spindrift. Sounds like Fido's is the place to be!

Thank you for the Blue Hole info catatonic motivator. It sounds like a great trip but I may save it for another time. The 3 hour trip sounds rough at 5 am! I think I'll check out the local dives and get in some extra "surface" time!

Re: Any "20 something" year olds? - 03/31/05 07:08 AM

travelqueen, what is the new club? I was just in town in Feb. Is it really new??!!! Too bad we hadn't been chatting in Feb, we just missed each other!!

Re: Any "20 something" year olds? - 03/31/05 02:30 PM

ke- The club is called Barefoot Iguana, farther south, but evidently, it's an old club that has reopened. ...Not sure if I'll get there this time.

R&J- Ramon's is a cool spot/location! It'll be great! Forget the MCAT, join us a few days earlier!

travelqueen and others - sounds like fidos on the night of the 15th I will be there, just look for the midget with short brown hair (not really a midget bu short at 5'6")

Re: Any "20 something" year olds? - 03/31/05 04:46 PM

Fidos it is! I'm a tall 5'9" female (but I'm sure you got that!) with brown med-length hair. I'll be with a blond guy and brunette girl, newlyweds!
