All the wonderful food
- Feeling that blast of warm and humid Jamaican air as I walk out of the airport.
- The drive to Negril. Maybe stopping along the way and visit with the locals.
- That feeling when you pull up to CSA that you have truly arrived.
- Getting checked into the room and trying to decide what to do first.
- That first morning when you walk out onto the beach and take your first look around.
- That moment when you plunge your head under the warm Caribbean sea for the first time.
- Walking down the beach and soaking in that Negril vibe...stopping at the little locally owned bars and restaurants.
- Laying in the hammock on the veranda for an afternoon snooze.
- That pungent smell of burning creativity.
- Being disconnected from the world for a week (no tv, no cell phones, no computers, etc)
- Meeting other people
- Introducing others to the magic of CSA (we are bring along another couple with us this year)
- Chasing down hot jerk chicken with an ice cold Red Stripe.
- Listening to the travelling musicians on the beach.
- Banana-stuffed french toast for breakfast.
- Lobster tail for dinner on Saturday night.
Just the anticipation of our plane landing and arriving at the Couples lounge is so exciting for me. The bus ride is excruciating too. I too can't wait to experience everything csa has to offer in 145 sle

For me, its waking up, smoke a little, then hit the Hobie Cats SOLO, while the morning breeze is still nice...You can get those suckers moving real nice in the morning......Thats how I will be starting off my CSA second home trip Dec 1-7, Wooooooooooooooooooooooo
Getting there the day you arrive early. Rooms not ready yet. Go to the lobby bathroom change into shorts, go too the beach bar and get my first drink say hello to whoever is there and begin the adventure!
We'll be at CSA the same time as you, Nov 30 - Dec 8, for our fourth trip home. We love arriving, changing in the lobby rest room and hitting the bar at the Palms for our first hummingbirds. Then to Seagrapes for lunch with sweet potato chips/dip and a dip in the water. Of course a hobie cat ride is called for. Hope to see you there...
We do the same Steve, I just hope they are serving some fish tacos at Seagrapes, one of the VERY, VERY, and I mean VERY FEW things I dislike about Couples( or wish it was different ) is that Seagrapes does not serve them at all times, they're just that dam good., I feel empty, and a little shaded if I miss out.
Give me/us a shout out, I'll be that guy in the morning with cashed eyes and brown trunks Sailing( hobie cat) I like to think im sailing my boat out there.
To me it's waking up to a nice pot of coffee and pastry and sitting on the patio and taking it all in and realizing every morning this is what paradise feels and looks like!! Having a nice breafast and checking out what the drink special is at the beach bar and knowing you and all your friends will be tipping a few back today!! Just people watching and seeing all the smiles and hand holding and romance this resort and beautiful Country brings out in every couple!! This will be our first time returning to the same resort and we can't wait for CSA in May!!
