The "I wish I would have thought of that" thread

Have you been to Couples in the past and seen something that someone else had brought with them and thought "I wish I would have thought of that"? For example, we throw in a dozen or so of the Crystal Light type drink pouches that are made to mix with a bottle of water for those times when you're not ready for alcohol and soda just doesn't sound good. We always have people tell us they wish they would have thought of that. Any other ideas out there?

Can you get rum cream in the U.S.?

First trip to CTI and keep reading about rum cream. Bringing liquor back is somewhat of a nuisance with customs so I was wondering if large liquor chains in the U.S. typically carry it.

I wish I had known...

Most everybody comes back from their first trip and says, "I wish I had known...." or "Why didn't somebody tell me...."

This is my request of those of you who have been - experienced - and now know. What is it you wish someone had told you before you went.

Thank you in advance, and I'm sooo looking forward to 8/2 and our first stay at CSS!

Just booked CSA for the week starting 3 October. Interesting the price difference, day to day. Example; rates on Thursday were much higher than Fridays. Guessing airlines??

CSS questions

Hi, we've been to CN x2 and love it. We're considering trying CSS but, I had a couple of questions:

1) Can I take my Open Water Scuba certification at CSS?
2) We love the beach and the ocean. We prefer being in the ocean water rather than the pools. I know the Ocho Rios beaches aren't the same as Negril but, can we still go in the ocean easily at CSS (without water shoes)?

Thanks in advance,

jet ski ban lifted Friday July 18

The island-wide jet ski ban has been lifted as of Friday July 18.

Sigh. Oh well, at least they (Maritime Authority of Jamaica) appear to be putting in some restrictions.
Licensing, restricting the number/location of launch sites, requiring operator training, etc.
Still have the importation ban for now.

Wish we could've visited when the ban was in place - sounds lovely to have zero jet skis.
