Greetings all. I have been following the boards for a few months now and have come up with my itinerary for our 8 day trip. About us: We are 31 year old professionals that enjoy adventure, nightlife, and great food. We enjoy immersing ourselves in the local culture and do not partake in cruises or all-inclusives. Please review and critique at your leisure and let me know if I'm either missing anything or am stretching myself too thin. Thanks in advance, I look forward to your feedback.
