Easy choices for me. Exploring the cunucu and the north shore. Getting into parts of the island that tourists rarely visit and meeting locals away from the resorts.

Smile Re: more questions

Cant beat a round of golf at Tierra Del Sol. Its one of the prettiest places on the island and you see a lot of wildlife not seen elsewhere. We even saw a couple of the burrowing owls that live out there once. I think I will post some of my photos of Tierra Del Sol on the album site if I can find the disk.

I like walking the streets behind the renaissance in downtown. Stopping and getting an ice cream and going into the stores. Its relaxing to just walk and having no stress and no where to be!

We are not beach people (please pick yourselves up off the ground ). We live on the water in Florida and I burn, and so many many of my friends have had cancerous stuff removed or pre-cancerous (as my sister says - the sun is not her friend) that I wear 50 spf at all times, etc. We have a beatiful VIEW of the ocean and beach. Sooooo we play golf, drive around the island, snorkel (Coolibar has great spf 50 swim shirts and swim pants), play bridge, go to the movies, read, read read, visit with friends and gamble.
