We were reserved at CTI for the trip but yesterday we talked it over and decided that we wanted to get married and spend our honeymoon in Negril at CSA! I will miss not getting to swim with the Dolphins at Dolphin Cove in Ocho Rios, but I heard that possibly one is opening in Montego Bay? Has anyone else heard this? I haven't been able to Google anything but maybe I am looking in the wrong place.
Is anyone else going to be there during that time? We noticed someone is booked for a wedding right after ours so hopefully that someone is on the MB and reads this! SO SO SO excited! It is our first time to the Caribbean and we can't wait to relax in the warm sand. It would be a welcome change from living in Seattle.
Any advice from previous CSA Brides? We are probably only going to have the two of us there, so any advice would be welcomed. Thanks! 295 days and counting!
My hubby and I spent our honeymoon at CSA in May 2007 at the urging of my mother in law who is a travel agent. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT! CSA is beautiful, romantic, and very spread out so it doesn't feel full even if it is. The food is great and the staff is impeccable! We stayed in a beachfront verandah and it was perfect. I highly recommend a 3rd fl corner room if you are in the verandah section because it's private and the balcony is a smidge larger than the middle rooms.
(swimming with the dolphins is overrated) I did it in Mexico and I felt horrible after doing it, they are pent up in a small area and the water is not the cleanest, I just wanted to set them free.
As far as excursions/activities: I highly recommend the catamaran cruise, dinner on the beach, go and listen to the piano bar at night, have cocktails at patois as it is a BLAST at night. We did dinner at the rockhouse one night and I recommend it even though it is not included it's great!
I am thinking of booking our honeymoon from 31st aug for 2 weeks so may see you there. Do you know what the weather will be like over that period?? Im very excited, just want all the inns and outs before i booK!!
Wanda & EinWi- We are watching The Cove right now and I can say that neither of us want to support the cruelty to Dolphins that is currently going on. So we will hope to see them in their natural habitat and that will be enough for us!
JamacianMeCrazy & Laura- We will see you there! SO EXCITED! 225 days and counting until we are there!
jenpatrick- sorry we will miss you but Happy Birthday! And have a great trip! We know we will want to be staying instead of going back home..
We are planning on making our 4th trip to CSA Sep 3rd-11th. Last year we also saw dolphins while returning to CSA from one of our afternoon dive excursions. Obviously we love CSA and look forward to celebrating our anniversary there for many years to come. One of our favorite pasttimes is hanging out at the swim-up bar drinking pina coladas....
My future husband and I will be arriving on the 31st as well (overnight flight on the 30th from Seattle) to celebrate our honeymoon! We booked last week, I'm so excited! We will be there Aug 31-Sept 10
