Long Pants for DInner Question.

Hi, we are headed out in 10 days - haven't been to PC for 10 years. Anyway for dinner my hubby wants to know if her can just wear blue jeans, or just Khakis?? We are staying at the Melia. Thanks!

Denim may be a little warm to wear

I'd go with khakis over jeans, just because, as FF said, denim may be a little sticky hot for the tropics, and khakis (Dockers style) have a more vacation-ish, tropical feel, I think. But, by no means does hubby have to wear dress trousers.

Isn't it nice to dress a little better for dinner? Bring the khakis.

My hubby usually wears long pants like khakis for dinner but at the Melia there were lots of guys wearing shorts.

They try to have a bit of a dress code but with all the people from all over the world they basically draw the line at beachwear or gym clothes. Be comfortable and be nice to the staff, I know many at the Melia and they work hard. Oh yeah be Canadian and be prepared to tip. You'll have a good time.

Jeans should never be worn to a nice dinner in my opinion.

Plus with the heat and humidity..
