    29 degrees this morning. Burrrr! 50 days until we feel the warm sun on our faces again. Very excited to start packing. Still debating on Club Mobay or not. I know it's not a lot of money considering the cost of the trip so i'm sure I will but All the mixed reviews makes me think twice. Also traveling with 2 other couples that don't think it will be worth it. I think we might just saw " meet you at the swim up bar" and go. LOL

    Can't wait for the cool Red Stripe in my hand

    Y'all are arriving on a Saturday. We used Club MoBay for arrival once and were very pleased with them. If Monica and Iwere to book a Saturday arrival again, we would use their service. We've only had two saturday arrivals in the past six visits. The first took us almost 3 hours to get thru Customs, immigration and finally onto our bus to CSA. Total time from arrival at Montego bay to check-in at CSA was between 5 to5 1/2 hours. The second time we used Club Mobay - it took us 15 minutes from the time we got our luggage to get thru customs, sign into the CSA lounge and then we were escorted to Timair for our trip to CSA. Total time from arrival at Montego bay to check-in at CSA was between 1 to 1 1/2 hours. That said, we are big fans of Club MoBay's departure service and use it every time. Monica and I will make sure that your drinks are waiting for you when you arrive on the 13th

Within an hour, I received an email confirmation. After processing the last 24 hours, I feel like it is a blessing in disguise. We love Swept Away! Now we need some information on the New Year's Eve celebration!

    Chris and Vanessa - welcome to the December meetup thread. I've added you to our list and will publish the next one around the first week of November. Bern & Bob (bern_ford) should be able to answer any questions you have about New Year's Eve.
    Please have a drink for us on New Years and we'll make sure to have one here in LA for all of our CSA family.
    Have a great time at CSA - we know you're going to love you new Jamaican "home".

    Steve & Melissa - Welcome to the December meetup thread. I've added you to the list (sorry about the delay). We also arrive on the 12th and hope to meet up with y'all. I read your earlier posts (even answered one) and remembered that you are a military retiree.

    Thanks for your service.

    Looking forward to sitting down, having a drink (or two), and swapping some stories with you.

    Hey everyone, My husband Eric and myself (Danielle) will be returning to CSA December 14-21. It will be our second visit to CSA (last 2011) and 3rd visit to couples resort (CN 2010). We've previously travelled on our anniversaries in November, but due to grad school we are now travelling in December. We have been to YS falls, ricks café, and Ivan's on prior trips. We are looking forward to a relaxing vacation (with red strip, patois pizza, pumpkin soup, and sweet potato chips and hummus) and possibly a day excursion or trip to the cliffs to watch the sunset and have drinks. Looking forward to landing in Jamaica in 47 days!! Ahh sounds so nice

    Well I have been so busy that I haven't been on the board much recently but will be more active as time to return home is fast approaching! Started my checklist, yes I know we don't leave until Dec 13th but there is so much to plan for, Christmas shopping must be done, present wrapped, start the pre tan (don't want to burn when the butt hits the chair and I can't get up otherwise known as sand gravity), any last minute tropical shopping and of course daydreaming of the beach, drinks, new and old friends and did I mention the beach?

    Let the countdown start- soon come.

    Mike and Monica- another Bob Marley shot? I will buy.

    Good morning from Charlotte everyone! The fiance' and I are booked on our first trip to Jamaica together for December 24th-29th. Christmas in paradise... Doesn't get any better than that! First time going to a Couples Resort, did Aruba for Thanksgiving last year and loved it. From the sounds of it CSA is going to blow us away. Looking forward to meeting everyone that will be there at the swim up bar as that is usually our location of choice when on vacation

    Here's to hoping the next 8 weeks fly by!!!!

    Hard to believe we are now down to T-43 days until our trip.... 46 days until our wedding on the beach. I was trying to talk my soon-to-be wife into allowing me to get married in swim trunks while holding a Red Stripe. Alas.... that didn't fly. I had my slacks and vest fitted yesterday Still working on the hop flower boutonniere though.

    Seems like just yesterday we were 1 year and counting. We will be travelling with 6 other couples which includes family. Can't wait for our 10 days at CSA....

    Hi Lincoln,

    Down to 32 days and we are trying to decide if we should purchase the Club Mobay pass. We are arriving on Saturday the 7th. For those of you who visit every December is the airport crazy on a Saturday? Thanks

    Afternoon?? If, so then probably so.... I wouldn't say it is crazy, but there definitely could be a long line.

    Monica and I used their service for a Saturday arrival and were glad we did. We've flown in to MBJ twice on saturdays and each time the airport was swamped. If we setup another trip where we have to arrive on a saturday, we will use them and TimAir. One and a half hours from arrival to checkin at CSA can't be beat.

    G&G , Mark & Erica, Danyell,
    Welcome to the December Meetup thread. I've added y'all to the list.

    I'll post the final list during the last week of November.

    CSA dec 2013 ver 7 wo_pics.xls

    Monica and I wish everyone a great Thanksgiving, and hope that your flight to Jamaica is on-time, your luggage is waiting for you at MBJ, the lines for Immigration and Customs are short, and that the room you want (with stocked mini-fridge) is ready when you arrive. If not, just remember you will soon be at "Home" where sand-gravity, Ultimate Chocolate, and all the other exceptional benefits of CSA will soon make your days and nights a vacation to remember (and repeat as soon as possible).

    We are looking forward to seeing everyone again and having a Bob Marley (or two) with old (and new) friends.

    36 days and counting!!!!

    Thanks Mike & Monica! I will make sure the Bob Marleys are ready for your arrival!

    Every year we take Airlink but it seems like the prices have gone up. $140 per person on their web site. Anyone have any suggestions on getting the best rate even if it means we take timair? We are checking in on Dec 6th.
    Thanks!

    Kelly & Adrian

    Thanks so much for doing that, can't wait as the days get closer. Should we put an invite out to others in a different thread? It would be fun to get a whole bus together but I don't know if that is possible. And it is getting cold here too

    If you can get enough people together, you can get your own bus off the regularly scheduled times. I don't know what the minimum number is, but you can email Lembert and ask.

    When we went it was definitely SRO, and the bus was way later than the pick up time they gave us. They really pack them in there. Getting your own group together would avoid that. Totally worth it though. Tip Lembert well!
