A couple of newbie questions...
Hi all!!! We're leaving in about a month for CSS and I'm trying to get as much info as possible. I'm so excited!!! =D I've already got a packing list going and everything!!!
So, my first question is how long is the ride from the airport to CSS? our plane doesn't get in until 8:30 =( so I wanted to know what time we would be getting to the resort about and if we'll have time to go swimming or get drinks before we're exhausted and it's time for bed. I've heard that lobster night is Wednesday night... I'm guessing we'll be missing that. sad.
My second question is how far ahead in advance you have to book activities (water skiing lessons, etc) and dinner reservations???
My third question is about night swimming at the beach. Does it happen? is there any lighting for it? I've heard there is night snorkeling there- do you have to sign up for it or can you just go grab the snorkel gear and go?
Anyways, thanks for these answers and any other helpful info you might want to share! CSS here we come!!!

as far as you getting to the resort, it all depends how long it takes you to get your luggage, clear customs, and get on the van. the ride to the resort is a good hour and a half. you stop halfway the use the bathrooms and buy a beer.
you should make your dinner reservations once you have checked in
although, some of the restaurants do'nt let you book that far ahead, and all are closed at least one night.
i've never seen anyone swim in the ocean at night but i've never
gone to the beach at night. my wife and i are going back in may
for our 5th time. YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

We are going to CSS for our first time next month as well.
From what I read, the ride from the airport to CSS is about 90 minutes.
I also heard Lobster night is Wednesday, but I've also read that lobster is not in season in April????

Yes, the ride is anywhere from 60-90 minutes. No worries, though! Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride through the country. The bus driver will be your tour guide.
