Having Trouble Deciding.......

Between an AI and renting a condo in PDC. We have only done one AI in Jamaica and while it was nice we thought we might like to try something different this time.

Can someone tell me approximately what we should budget for food, we will probably eat most dinners out, seafood, steak, Italian and of course Mexican. I would quite happily stay in and cook for ourselves but my husband would rather go out. I have read that beer etc is quite reasonable to buy so that is not an issue.

Also is shrimp and lobster readily available to purchase in PDC?

Any input would be appreciated.

Take into consideration if you are cooking you will need spices etc. Do you realy want to do all that on vacation?? Even though you said you will eat dinner out mostly, it still seems like alot of work for you. Make a list of things you think you will want for breakfast, lunch and snacks and then see if its worth it to rent the condo or just do a small hotel in town instead.
