12 yr Hiatus from PDC

Just returned from vacationing w/ family and friends in PDC where we stayed at the same place we did twelve years ago. I’ve promised myself to return much sooner and set up camp permanently, so I expect to be hangin around the forum.
Interesting how things change. Last visit the adults hit the town and left the children to be babysat at the “Kids Club” all night long.
This visit the adults were in bed early and the kids were out till sunrise!

Thank you all so much for your warm welcome!
We stayed at Sandos – formally Gala.
The most obvious change was the traffic. Clearly people had caught on to paradise and were moving to the area. We had pretty much kept up with the reports in and around Playa and had expected this.
Pulling into Playacar I recognized the entrance, however I didn’t recognized all the homes and condos, that part was new. I remember this area being kind of secluded.
5th has exploded! Still very appealing and relaxing to roam, just a lot more of it. Sometimes you prefer things not to change but all in all we were very impressed.
