Looking for a lodging that is within walking distance to stores, one or two restaurants (for when I don't wanna cook!) and the water (either beach or shorefront) in the price range around $100 a night (10-11 day stay). And …. Yes I believe in Santa Claus : )
Reason I ask is - you might want to get a cup of coffee at this point, as I get quite wordy…..
My husband is a United Methodist Pastor and a total stress free R&R is what we try to do to maintain some sort of balance. We've gone to Ambergris Caye a couple of times (it’s getting tooooo busy) and Isla Mujeres once. Just looking for something different this year.
What we want is for life just to slow down to about a crawl. We usually cook our evening meal and a stroll through a grocery store is always in fun. (makes on not complain about the cost of food in Ohio)
We don't require 5 star lodging to be happy. Don't mind washing t's in the sink and hanging 'em up to dry. Do need a separate sitting and sleeping area.
Considering not renting a car, trying to see all that one should, just adds a tad bit of "doing too much" . Sometimes the first visit just needs to be simple. However this is subject to change after we get there and get familiar with our surroundings. I know that there are some gorgeous beaches that we won’t get to see without a car.
Planning on visiting the end of April , first of May-ish.
We had first looked at Vieque and someone suggest Culebra - and I’m soooo glad they did – it looks perfect.
Thanks in advance for your help.
