Packing clothes for Mexican vacation

I am a 49 y/o woman traveling for Xmas to Akumal (near Cancun) with my family and my extended family. We are staying in condos right on the beach and I want to pack comfortable clothes/shoes but still look good. What besides swimsuits and cover-ups and hat should I take? What shoes? I have Keen water sandals but they do fill up with sand on the beach and are probably mainly for river shoes when you need to walk on rocks. I also have black teva flip flops. Not the most flattering at all! We will be snorkeling, reading on the beach, walking, sightseeing going to restaurants, playing with young nieces and nephews. Thank you!

Do I continue vacationing with alcoholic in denial?

My aging parents have a cabin on a lake. It is about a $3,000,000 property with all the ammenities. My kids LOVE going to this place. I grew up going to this spot for vacations. I am now grown and have my own family and am questioning going to this spot for our vacations. We have gone every year for many years. My father is an alcoholic---the type that drinks and rages or just stews silently in a rage if things are not pleasing to him. He does not drink himself into a stupor though. He put himself in rehab but did not complete the program saying he is not an alcoholic. My question is about spending time at the cabin for my immediate families' vacations. [more inside]
