Yesterday we were almost here a week. Time flies when you are having fun.

Slept in a little before taking a ride to check out Indigo Beach. Waves were rough there and while the restaurant looked nice overlooking the ocean we decided not to stay and went to Dinghy Dock to split some wings.

There are several wing option sauces and size orders. We split 1 lb in an Asian sauce. They were tasty and cooked perfectly. I love their fish & chips but we are going out for a big dinner tonight so the wings were enough. We’ll go back for fish & chips and ribs.

By the way if you’re a UFC fan (we have a friend here who is) they are showing it at Pineapple Pete’s and Dinghy Dock.

Ten of us dined at Mario’s tonight.

Food was excellent as usual. The prix fixe is no longer an option, ala carte menu with several specials were offered last night. My grilled shrimp with crab risotto in a lobster sauce was so good. David had the salmon which he loved and our friends had a mix of steak or seafood dishes. David’s salmon dish was a special of the evening.

Porto Cupecoy was buzzing last night. They have a big bar somewhat in the center toward the back of the plaza playing some good tunes. I don't know if it was a private party but there was a crowd when we first arrived. It's a full service bar with a huge TV on the wall. Couldn't tell if it was a flat screen or projection. The place is called Steve'z.

Most of us moved on to Maho and gambled at Casino Royale. David and I both made a withdrawal. Which is always more fun than making a deposit.

You missed some very good food at Indigo Bay. When I was there (and will be again soon), the service was very nice. Nice report - thanks!

Where is Indigo Beach? We have been many times to SXM but haven't heard this name till today. Enjoy your reports.

Thank you. If you go up the mountain pass the lookout point you will see a sign for Indigo beach right by the first rotary. Follow the signs as the continue on your drive down the hill. There is a big parking lot. Most of the road is paved in the Indigo complex but the one leading to the parking area is not paved so it's fairly rocky.

On Airport rd after the airport on left hand side. If you passed the Texaco station you've gone too far. Next to the Casino .
