    Wednesday, day 13.

    Today was an extended pool day. Later in the afternoon we parked the car at Eagle Beach and took a long walk.
    We decided to have dinner at the condo so we stopped at Daily Fish and picked some shrimp and wahoo. Today was just a relaxing venture.

    Thursday, day 14.

    Today we we looked at a condo at Wacamaya. The property seems appropriate for a short term vacation stay, but is to confined for us for long term.
    We ventured downtown for dinner at the Driftwood. It was our first time there and we enjoyed the atmosphere and dining experience. We would probably go there again.

    Friday, day 15.

    Today we looked at a condo in Palma Real. This is where we normally stay short term and we're quite comfortable here. We have our eye on a couple of units here, unfortunately none of them are for sale yet. We were headed to Baby Beach but we realized when we had reached the airport that we had forgotten our beach chairs and towels. We ran into Price Smart and picked up a few things and headed North. We stopped at the Glitz and made a small hit. At least the day wasn't a total loss.
    We stopped at Iguana Cantina for dinner. It's a nice open air venue over looking the square, which is also nice if there is entertainment taking place down below.

    Saturday, day 16.

    Another road trip to Baby Beach. The wife loves it hear because it's the only beach that she's comfortable enough to go in the water. Otherwise she won't go in over her ankles. Haha. We spent a good time of the day there and stopped at the Rum Reef to see how their construction was coming. The owner was there and let us look around. This place is going to be great. The infinity pool is done, bar and dining area. He hopes to be open beginning of next year. From there we stopped attend Glitz, again...I don't know how this women can make $20 on the slots last two hours! That sums up today's adventure. Had dinner in again.

    Sunday, day 17.

    Our last full day, so we tried to make the most of beach side. We went to Mathew's for lunch. Food and service we're very good. We
    said our goodbyes to our bartender and spent the rest of the day sitting and walking on the beach.
    For dinner we gave Sweat Peppers a try and didn't regret it. Another new place that we'll go back to. Headed back to the condo for a beverage and called it a night.

    awww. you are home!

    i am so glad that you shared your story with us here on the forum.

    you mentioned that your wife is only comfortable in the ocean at baby beach.
    how about at palm beach? the surf is pretty tame there...and shallow.

    thanks so much for taking the time on your vacation to share your experiences.

    i look forward to hearing if you move forward with a condo purchase.

    again, thanks

    Monday, travel day.

    We had a 3:25 flight, so we thought we'd catch a few more ray's poolside. Besides, we had some left
    over food and beverage to dispose of...
    Finished packing and gased up the rental. We always take a ride from the high rise to the low rise area on our final drive to the airport, trying to take in our last views of surf and sand. Ricky from Wheels2go was there promptly at 1:20 to meet us. We got our boarding passes and made our way to the gate. It took us 50 minutes to pass through everything. US Customs slowed us down the most. Our flight left 30 minutes late and we're now sitting at JFK, just finding out that our connecting flight is delayed an hour. Got to love it...Oh well, we're back in a couple of months. Can't wait to do it again!!!! And again!!!

    She can't swim and has a fear of being swept out to sea, so she feels protected by the reef. If she's happy then I'm happy.
    Thank you for the well wishes on the condo. If this one doesn't work out there will be another. No worries. Love that phrase!
