  1. Set up a swimming pool / spa scavenger hunt for the kids.  Split those young folks into two teams, toss two of each item into the swimming pool, and keep a check list on the deck.  You can get creative with what you throw in and use spoons, coins, diving sticks, and more.
  2. If you don't already have a family recipe for guacamole, try out this one to add extra flavor to your evening:  In a small bowl, mix 3 avocados (peeled, pitted, and diced), 1 tbsp. of sour cream, 6 oz. of cream cheese, and 2 tbsp. of salsa.  In a second small bowl, mix salt, pepper, garlic salt, and onion powder (a dash of each) together.  Stir second mixture into the avocado mixture.  Cover and chill 30 minutes before serving.
  3. Decorate around the whole backyard living space!  This outdoor living area should be like an extension of the home itself, allowing you to entertain just the same.  With a barbecue, some streamers, and maybe even a piñata hanging over the deck, your Cinco de Mayo celebration can be unlike any other!
  4. Try making your own mango-guava batidos with this recipe! Combine 3 cups guava nectar, 1 cup milk, 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla, and 3 tbsp. sugar in a large bowl.  Add 3 cups frozen mango chunks.  Working in batches, puree in a blender until smooth and froth.  Divide among small glasses.
