Hi there! I just want ed to say how excited I am to be going to CSA. It's my first time but my boyfriends third time. We are flying out March 12th after a tense time with Air Canada and the possibility of a strike!
If anyone has any hints/pointers I'd greatly appreciate them!
Thanks in advance.

*Take a pen to fill out imigration paperwork on the flight.
*Take some singles to tip the airport baggage handlers $2 per bag.
*Bring shorts and flip flops in your carry on to change into when you arrive in the Couples airport lounge for a more pleasant ride to the resort.
*Tip your driver to the resort as he is not a regular Couples employee. (No tipping on the resort)
*Pack plenty of sunscreen as the sun is always strong and it is expensive at the resort.
*Pack extra bathing suits as things take longer to dry.
*Book your catamaran trip early when you arrive.
*Make reservations for Feathers and Lemon Grass restaurants as early as you can after arriving.
*Take the resort tour as it is informative and you will meet some people right at the beginning of your stay.
*Don't try to book too much off resort activities because once at the resort you may not want to leave.
*Make sure your boyfriend has the proper clothes for the fancier restaurant. (Collared shirt, long pants, closed toe shoes...not sandals)
Smile a lot, practice saying things like Ya mon, Respect, and No problem mon, and leave your worries at home...you are in paradise.

Try the Martini Bar above the Palms for a pre-dinner cocktail. Take a night time stroll across the property. Wander the beach and check out the local vendors and flavors. And go snorkeling. It's easy, romantic and fun. CSA is the best. Enjoy.
