You helped me pick a villa awhile ago for a trip my wife and I are taking in April. We decided to stay at Seacrest Villa on Tranquility Bay, just south of Cocodimama. We will be there for 7 days.
I've seen lots of restaurant reviews on here so I won't just ask for recommendations, but I can't quite decide how to plan the food strategy for this trip. We would rather travel light and will not be bringing in our own food. We were hoping to strike a balance between making our own meals, definitely for breakfast most days, and also enjoying eating out some. We want this to be a relaxing vacation, so we aren't looking to cook elaborate meals but also don't want to have to leave the house anytime we are hungry.
Right now, I figure that we will go to the grocery store to get food for breakfast and lunches we can take with us to the beach if we leave (sandwiches, etc.), and plan on eating out most nights. I was somewhat concerned, however, with whether we might get a little lost trekking around at night and it also seems that a lot of restaurants are open for lunch but not dinner.
Does anyone have some good advice on the optimal strategy for what we are looking for? Any insight would be much appreciated!
