A few questions: 1st time @ CSA!!!
My Husband and I are going to Jamaica for the first time, to CSA, to celebrate our 1 year anniversary this month=) (Sep. 20th)
We were wondering about a couple of things and love reading the message boards! We thought we should ask experienced CSA lovers what ideas they had to make the most out of our 6 day trip and to make this a memorable 1 year anniversary!?!
1) How are the off-resort excursions? We were thinking of the Black River Safari & Y.S. Falls Tour? How/when should you book them, and are there any that stand out from the crowd?
2)We will be arriving @ CSA around noon and were wondering how early check-in's work? Do they allow them, or would we just have to kill time before checking in?
3)Is there Kayaking and/or para-sailing in the area? If so, what are the costs?
4)What is the easiest way to get to Rick's Cafe? How far is it from CSA?
We would appreciate any input, and are VERY EXCITED to go to Jamaica!!! Only 9 more days!!!:D
Best wishes, CSA has it all, yet ...
If you like nature then the tours into the mountains: ie. Roaring River, may appeal and give you a better perspective on the countryside vs. the coastline.
When ariving a noon, take advantage of the great display of food at lunch and travel about light on the resort. Scope it out and then your room will be ready.
You will, I guarantee, find Elvis ("ShutUpAndFly") he'll take care of all your worldly needs on extra sports etc. He's on the beach.
Xtabi Resort on the road along the cliffs allows visitors to have a cocktail on their property ($$), use their steps down to the sea and explore their little caves and snorkel.
That is really different from the sevenmile beach zone!
Use the Cat Cruise ( sign up in advance to make your way out to the cliffs, WestEnd! Negril Center and the StrawMarket makes another venture.
As a repeater: now 14th time for me, it is easy to overlook many fun events of the past. Enjoy.
