    THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to write these fantastic tips!! We'll be there in 4 days (6/15-6/24) and I cannot wait! Second time to Jamaica (CN 2012) but first time at CSA, and I'm really looking forward to it. I've written down a long list of the wonderful things to try. I'm especially excited to kayak down to Long Bay Beach Park to see the wildlife. Woohoo!

    A couple tips that I can add:
    Get a coconut every morning. Drink it up, it's so delicious.
    Do not miss the Cat Cruise!! It was my favorite thing to do last time...don't be afraid to swim into the caves! Look up and you'll see tons of bats just chillin
    When it rains during the afternoon, the stingrays come out and swim very close to the shore. I got some great shots of them with my waterproof camera!
    If you find a seastar (they're there...just look down) place it very gently in your hand upside down and it will do a flip right in your palm.

    Enjoy!

    1)Unless you are in a group, no matter how "lame" you think the resort tour is, take it. It is short. There is the obvious reason to see all of the hidden gems that your guide will show you but the BEST part is you may meet some great people that you will see throughout your time at Couples. Great fun to see staff and guests that you know from the very first day.

    2)If you are up just after sunrise, take a long walk along the beach past the property line. The beach is still quiet and businesses and fishermen are just starting to come out. It is beautiful and quiet.

    another "secret": pick up the sweet potato chips and the hummus platter at Seagrapes and take it back to your room for a private happy hour. I always make sure to return the plates.

    These are great insightful tips. We are not returning until next year, although I am making my list early. Thanks.

    Is there a cigar bar at CSA or can you buy cigars at the resort or somewhere close? My husband like to have one from time to time.

    This might be too late of a response for you, but I think we purchased some at the gift shop. I think there are also vendors selling them on the beach.

    Do not buy cigars from the guys on the beach, hey are all fake Cubans. Buy from the gift shop only.

    Last year they had a table set up at the entrace to the dining area at dinner hour. My take is they are affiliated with the resort.

    This a legit offerring?

    dotandturd - Is that true? We have been 6 times and I have never once heard a whisper of a bowling alley on property. I wouldn't even know how to get to a basement in the great house...

    Fish Taco's at Seagrapes, yeah, they have self serve beer, and i have way too much if their self serve ice-cream... But boy-oh-boy, I wish all restaurants served those tacos. Better yet, I wish Seagrapes had them on the menu all the time
