    You have an exceptionally long flight so extending your stay is very good

    Shortest was 6 nights; longest 10 nights. I was ready to come home after that long one but maybe because it was the Marriott and I was tired of the crowds and crack-of-dawn treks down to the beach to reserve a palapa. Shortest was this past August at Manchebo. I could have stayed there a few more nights but cost was a big factor. But I loved it so much (which isn't much of a secret to anyone who read my trip reports! LOL!) i'm already planning to do the same number of nights next year. Pennies are being saved!

    Both my shortest and longest stays were too short. 2 weeks and 4 weeks respectively.

    My shortest was 4 nights on my own, we went for 5 nights over NYE one year and that is all I could afford at the Hyatt...our longest was 15 nights. Our ideal time is at least 12 nights but we take what we can get.

    Our shortest day was 1 week and our longest 13 days. I think 10-12 is really the best range for us. I can't imagine going back to just a week but we probably will have to next year if we go.

    The first couple of years we went for a week, knowing we wanted to stay longer. Then we met a guy at a bar that told us how to work II, so we were staying 2 weeks. Now that I'm playing the points game we are able to stay 3 weeks or more.

    Shortest stay was also my first visit, 4 days in August of 2010. I honestly thought I was going to be so bored that I would be eager to depart, not so, enjoyed my brief time so much that I realized four days was not enough. Longest stay was during my last visit back in September of 2018, twelve days. Felt so good when I reached day six and realized that I still had a good couple days left before I had to return home.

    Shortest stay was one week the we did ten days now we do two full weeks and an extra night because our first week is Saturday to Saturday the second is Sunday to Sunday I could stay longer but my wife does get fidgety halfway through the second week a few years ago we were walking the beach second to last day and got down to the tamarind and I almost had her convinced to go in and get a room so close but instead made the long walk back to la cabana to enjoy my last days

    "fidgety" is a very good word!
