I tried to plan this vacation 2 years ago and had issues with getting commitments from people. When I finally had to give up, we decided when we planned this vacation, we'd do it on our own but we would let everyone know when we were going and where we were staying. If they chose to be there at the same time, then all the better. My sister and her boyfriend decided to join us.
One night, we were at Sr. Frogs (ONLY because it was raining) and I swear, one of the waiters looked just like my husband's cousin's husband. He wasn't. At the hotel another guest reminded me of one of the neighbors who live close to my ILs cabin. It wasn't him either. It seemed like everywhere I went, people looked familiar to me.
So, on Tuesday morning as we were just settling into our beach chairs, I really shouldn't have been surprised when I glanced over my shoulder and saw a couple who looked like my in laws...walking towards us. I glanced again and it WAS my in laws walking towards us. They had planned their trip to overlap with ours so that they could surprise us. And surprise us they did.
They were staying at a different hotel but we managed to spend a little time with them, which only added to our Mexican experience. Because, you know...paradise really is meant to be shared.
