Do not go for any 'resort' with "bungalows", because you'll be stuck in a bug infested, bare bones kind of place that only has AC in the bedrooms.. the main room becomes unusable because it turns into an oven during the day. Frankly, i'd recommend other island in the caribbean if yer looking for long beaches and tropical environment.. the enviro here is southern california, basically. All dry, cactus filled and spiny. The terrain is volcanic in nature, so the shores are rocky.. lots of bluffs and such.

    The beaches, while warm and sunny for the most part, arent the best.. lots of rocks and dead coral, not a lot of sand. The reefs are good to snorkel in and such, but so far havent been utterly blown away by anything. I liked the beaches at Panama city in FL better.

    The food is generally tasty (oddly, even the fast food tastes better) and I havent had a bad meal as far as i can remember.

    Stay away from the snooty dutch restaurant, Der Tropen.. it aint that great anyhow

    Um.. what else. Service is generally painfully slow, there are no emission standards on cars so everything here belches black or blue rancid smoke (really gross) and there's a big ass, pollution belching oil refinery spewing crap into the air 24/7.. it mostly goes out to sea, but still.. it's a blight.

    Thanks Grim. I appreciate all the good feedback. I still might leave it off my list now that I know those suckers are there. We're also thinking about Turks and Caicos, Barbados, and St Barts. Know anything about those?

    not sure if it's too late to reply---

    but I live in Texas, and we have huge honkin' cockroaches all over the state. I SWEAR by Combat, those black plastic hexagonal things. I think Combat is made by Raid(?) They make different varieties, and one is specifically for large roaches. The fuckers are attracted to some poisonous bait in there, they don't just get stuck and die in glue (eww). The roach will take the poison back to the "nest" and kill the other fuckers too. You NEVER have to see them, no spray, no mess. For real -- if I see a big-ass roach and put about four of the things out in that area, no more roaches almost immediately. It ROCKS!

    ive been looking for traps, but they dont seem to sell them on the island.. just spray and crap like that, which is practically useless.

    Before i left for work, i unloaded a full can of roach killer in the crack behind the sink so that should hold me till i try the baking soda/sugar thing or take a flamethrower to the whole place.

    I heard the best spray to kill insects with is good ol' fashioned Aquanet. It dries quickly and plugs up all their little airholes in the process.

    What you need is 2 gallons of gasoline, a book of matches and a fast car. There's no hope, just burn the place down.
