    Hi Patty! Thank you so much for sharing your trip reports. Seeing the videos was really helpful. As much as we like the idea of lunch under the palapas and being super close to the water, I think we are leaning toward the condo. Right now we can rent J101 for about 1000 less than what it would cost to stay at MBR. That's really more than 6 days worth of spending money for food and xmas presents I plan to buy. Plus as you noted, with a LO, the space of a condo will probably be nice. And since we head to Boston for Xmas right after, I will probably appreciate being able to wash all our clothes beforehand. Okay - can you tell I am trying to rationalize my decision?

    Heres a link about BVBC. Its only 8KM south of PDC.

    Funny, I have been emailing them for more information on their rooms and yes they are slow. Ouch indeed $30. But good idea to ask, I will do the same for Las Palapas. Have you been to the Blue Venado Beach Club or inside the Punta Venado Eco park? Last time in PDC, DH became friends with some cyclists who were just then developing and have now opened a MT Bike track inside the park. He wants to bike and we are hoping that the beach is a nice area for me and the LO to hang out while he does.

    Hey Patty. Oh the back and forth. We are now again reconsidering a condo at Natz ti Ha as I found some that might work for us cost wise. But my DH has a picture in his head laying under a palapa eating tacos. Its not something we need everyday, but do you know if we can use the beach chairs at either Las Palapas or Mahekal if we order lunch/drinks? Thanks!

    One more thing....if you decide to stay at Mahekal, note that the Aventura section is the best for avoiding the noise from Mamita's. Both times we stayed, we stayed in the Gardenview (cheapest) section and while we LOVED the room and that section in general, we did hear the th thumping from Mamita's and it was loud enough that we had to sleep with earplugs. The Aventura section is farther north on the property and the noise from Mamita's isn't nearly as bad. BTW, also not bad at Natz ti Ha, which is located directly behind Mahekal's Aventura section.

    I posted a response on the discussion board to your question about Mahekal vs. Las Palapas, but I wanted to also tell you (privately, without blasting it on the board) that you can negotiate on price on the Natz to Ha condos. When we booked, I emailed the owners of several units units individually to ask if they had any special rates during the dates we wanted to visit and more than one of the owners offered me a significant discount. Granted, we are visiting in low season but you never know.
