Friend and I, both men, are going for the first time from the 20th to the 25th. Seems like a fun place and we aren't going with any expectations but to relax and enjoy the weather

Any tips, advice, suggestions? Anyone going to be down there that weekend/week?

Hang out on the nude beach--it's social! Hang out near the bar. Make a reservation at the Japanese restaurant and you'll be seated with 6 others = instant social interaction. Join in the sports and games to meet people easily and naturally.

Go to the nude beach your first day. If you wait until later in the trip to check it out, you will be kicking yourself for all the time lost.

Also - there always seems to be lots of NY/NJ people there. Wear a hat with your team logo on it and you'll have a bunch of new instant friends.

These are all good tips. To add to it, my personal experience has been that you never quite know what will be a conversation starter with some people. In my case (being from Brooklyn), one night I wore a t-shirt that had "Brooklyn" emblazoned across the front; this turned out to be quite the ice-breaker (with current Brooklynites, former Brooklynites and the "Brooklyn-curious"). Also, I tend to read quite a bit on my trips; over the years, there have been quite a few people who have stopped to ask me about the book I'm reading and you never know when this will strike up a new friendship. And when I get a deep tan, there've been some envious people who ask me for my secret (genetics).

My top tips: Bring lip balm w/ sunscreen. Do the snorkel boat trip(s). Offer to fetch beverages for your neighbors at the pool or on the beach. Pace yourself and avoid the dreaded 2nd day hangover. Get the lamb chops at Pastafari (or the filet). Walk the beach in the morning and chat with the local vendors.

I would suggest reading the trip reports. I wrote one for my first trip, as a single guy, just this past June. My tips would be to just be respectful, friendly, and outgoing. As well as the tips the others are sharing. Enjoy your virgin trip!

Ditto what Kyle said. As long as you're relaxed, respectful and friendly, you'll have no trouble chatting with folks and enjoying your vaca in the beautiful tropical locale.
2 other tips: Join the various games on the beach and (if you'd like) the contests at dinner time. They're all very entertaining and enjoyable by all. And... the catamaran cruise is one other top recommendation from dozens of friends.

Maybe post you info on the Facebook Group 'Hedo Couples for Singles' or whatever it is. Maybe a few couples will adopt you prior to your stay.
