    My husband and I will be going to GOV May 4th-May 9th and I am wondering if anyone that has recently been to GOV can shed some light on how intense the participation is on the theme nights and exactly how to dress (a lot on or a little on LOL) We have never been to Cancun or to an inclusive so we are just wanting to understand what to expect and what to pack! Thanks in advance!!

    Our friends who got back two weeks ago said only about three women dressed up one night, and they went back and changed into regular clothes. They also said the crowd at Coyote was more of a tank top and shorts group than a dress to impress group.

    We've been to several AIs, and it's usually anything goes at night. Some people love to dress up and flaunt it, and others feel like vacation=flip flops, period.
    So, I guess it's basically like any other vacation--just wear what you and your hubby enjoy the most. Bring options so you can with your mood each night.

    If you really want to make the theme happen, bring things you would be willing to lend to new friends--at TTR, there are always people who didn't know about themes but wish they could join in.

    I second what Laura said. Maybe you should write a book for newbies :aktion033:

    Take options and wear what you are comfortable and feeling for that night. You can change several times too. So just let loose, don't over think it, and have fun.

    We just returned a week ago and were very disappointed with the theme nights. No one dressed for the themes.
