JazzGal Thanks for all your recommendations!
We are going to add these to our list!

Tijon - also lots of fun making your own perfume/scent (not just for ladies!)

Passaat - do not miss a sail on the Passaat; they offer half-day sails, sunset sails, and dinner sails. Others will recommend other sailing experiences, but this is my favorite.

My pleasure. I like your countdown! My next trip is still a few months away.

Jazzgal, Our trip is August 5-19th. Our first 10 days are at Club O, until they close for the season. We have nothing booked for the 15th thru the 19th. We are thinking about touring the place you put a link to (Mecasa). If we do that, we will let you know what we think.

Thanks. I'm booked there for November. The pictures are very nice, and it has great reviews.

You will quickly learn that SXM is small and you can be anywhere on the island with your rental car in a very short time.
Enjoy, welcome aboard!

Sale & Pepe is the best Italian restaurant on the island. When you're leaving Pelican Key, take a left onto Welfare Rd by Burger King. The restaurant is on the left after Market Garden. I live on Billy Folly Road, pretty close to where you'll be staying. You'll be within walking distance of The Hideaway restaurant at LaVista resort. Nice romantic atmosphere. Enjoy!

I think that would be an energetic walk to say the least.

Not at all. He is staying about five houses down from LaVista.

RE: La Patrona at SBR. We stayed there for 2 weeks of our 3 week visit & tried La Patrona twice, were not happy. Breakfast was lackluster, lunch was just OK. Service was the worst we experienced in SXM...multiple people taking our order, food not coming out as we had ordered, overpriced for the so-so quality. While the view is spectacular, I believe you can make a better choice. Enjoy your trip & anniversary. Have fun getting out of your comfort zone at Orient beach...remember, you'll never be with those other people again (maybe!)!

I am really thankful for all of the suggestions. I am printing these places out and I will hopefully be able to review our trip when we get back.
