I like to go to every live music event on each island and dance as much as I can. (Sometimes for hours at a time.)
On the beach or by the pool, I wear small Brazilian bikinis and my husband got a tribal tatoo during one trip to Mexico.
He plans to grow dreads when we move to the islands hopefully in the next 10 years.
I'm 41 and my husband is 51.
We normally host a beach party at least once during every vacation, and everyone is invited to come - but especially people who just want to have a lot of fun, dance and listen to music.
It doesn't matter what they are wearing, how old or young they are, how they dance or how they look.
I like Margaritas, rum punches, or local beer.
We hope to continue the behavior described above even after they have to push us onto the dance floor in our wheelchairs.
Sounds like you enjoyed PC ParrotMom!
Did you give out all your Valentines?

Had picked up several Valentine pins and handed them to several the staff that I felt deserving...they were quite surprised. One person wore his for several days....Talk about moving to the islands... several people were talking about buying property in the Dominican Republic..if I were younger I might think of it...

That was a nice touch!
If you really think you would like to live there, now is the time.
There is always property for sale there, and the prices are much lower than most in the Caribbean - as I'm sure you know.
Hey, you only live once, and I say go for it!
Well, if nothing else, you can don your purple nail polish, swimsuit and red hat and terrorize the bronzed hotel staff of wherever it is you are vacationing

Sitting here in the middle of a blizzard expecting 15 to 20 inches anyhow...have put in my third dark wash.....don't you think I'd rather be somewhere else where it's 90 degrees... that's if you can fly out...and you can't from the East Coast

Hey ladies, I was wondering...what's your opinion/recommendation for a villa rental in DR? We will be traveling with four adults, six teens. We enjoy vacationing together, have done AI's in Mexico, but we'd love to rent a villa with cook, on our own. Any thoughts?

Don't know a darn thing about villas....but we have just come back from Sunscape....lots of friends who go together as a group....but it's sold out until the end of April.. Have not written my review yet, but can't say enough about the place, absolutely incredible

Joan,
There is a wonderful area with many villas right on the water with great snorkeling in Akumal Mexico.
It'a about an hour south of Cancun.
Look at locogringo.com.
Many of the villas have pools and you can arrange for cooks.
It's very safe and the villas are gorgeous.
Many Caribbean islands offer very nice villas but would be a bit more expensive than the Akumal area.
I would not stay outside the AI areas in the DR as there are safety concerns on that island.

Thanks to both of you! I wondered about the safety factor of DR. Have read several articles in Carib Travel & Life Mag about traveling around the countryside...looks like a beautiful country (especially as compared to Haiti) but...don't want my kids to be unsafe. Thanks again.
