Last year we did our first full immediate family cruise; me & DH, son & spouses, and the grands. We picked Cozumel for a beach day, went to Mr. Sanchos and had a wonderful time. Due to the weather, we missed the Mahogany Bay and Belize ports (both new ports for me & DH). Just so happened, the same itinerary fit the schedule for his birthday cruise in May, so I booked it again. We'd do the tours we had to cancel last year, but figured we go back to Mr. Sanchos. Last time I spent all my time with the granddaughters and let the kids really enjoy themselves. I figured this time DH and I would go & have a relaxing beach day all to ourselves.
Well, DH comes home from work last night, sits in the recliner, looks at me and politely says he doesn't think he wants to go to Mr. Sanchos this year. I hadn't even mentioned it , but after 35 years together...we think about the same things and even finish each others sentences. I didn't want to let on that I was a little disappointed and just nonchalantly ask why. He says he has such wonderful memories of the grands playing on the beach, the boys & wives having good time, and it just won't be the same without them. I looked at him and said - WTH? I wanted to slap him silly! LOL.
He mentioned getting a driver for the day and taking some time to see the island. I'm good with that and have started doing my research, and would love some input from my team of experts . I'd like to do a little shopping, experience some authentic eats (I'm not scared of a hole in the wall...sometimes they have the best food!), good bar(s), nice beach, and see a few sights & landmarks. Any & all suggestion are welcome. Many thanks!!
