Just curious what everyone's 2nd trip to Hedo was like. We started with TTR, but after doing the Boobs Cruise quickly realized we wanted something more (exciting, open, liberating, etc.)...and something with more space/scenery than TTR. Hedo quickly became a MUST VISIT and we booked our trip. Unfortunately my wife tore her ACL playing basketball 3 weeks before our trip. She was so excited for the trip that she elected to schedule her surgery for after we got back (100% her idea) so we could still go (my wife is pretty incredible...and much tougher than I am, ha). We definitely made the best of the situation, made great friends, and learned A LOT!

Now we have round 2 coming up - 12/13 through 12/19 and we're curious about how the 2nd trip was different than the first for everyone. Obviously we'll be more active this trip with 4 functioning ACLs, but we can't help but think that this trip is going to be off the charts fun. My wife joined me in getting PADI certified since our last trip so we're also pumped to throw diving into the morning mix before we get rowdy for the day 😉. We know we'll be entering day 1 with more confidence and somewhat knowing the ropes, but is there anything else we should know or do as we transition from rookie status this year? Thanks, all!!!

Probibly the best lesson I learned from my first trip was to pace myself. Too much booze and sun, by Wednesday I crashed, and lost that day.
I was also putting on 10 lbs. after every trip - turned out half of that was from the Rum Cream. eek
And I have also streamlined what goes into my suitcase. Packing half the clothes and twice the money works well for Hedo. (I also take duct tape, some rope and a power bar).


All in all, I'd rather be a hippy.

So, apparently, this is all about tying up someone and force-feeding them protein, then duct taping their mouth shut so they can't spit it out. Some seriously kinky $h*t going on here, which naturally earns my full endorsement. Also, embarrassed that I never thought of it myself.

Our 2nd trip was superb. Much more confident and relaxed the 2nd time around. The pacing comment is a good one... first trip was 4-5am most every nite.... 2nd trip was 3-4am. smile

The diving is a great activity. Good to take advantage of the free daily dives before that becomes a thing of the past in August. We've often brought rope and duct tape in years past.. mostly to hang beach balls and other decorations.... Enjoy!

TTR?

My second visit to Hedo was much more successful than my first. On my first (as a single guy), I was just looking for a relaxing beach vacation. My travel agent had never been to Hedo and didn't know much about it, but recommended it on the strength of an Apple Vacations brochure. I went, and was kind of shell shocked by the intensity of it all!

But I went back the next year (still as a single guy), this time fully knowing what to expect, and had a much better time. Thirty trips later, I've never looked back!
