    Try the banana stuffed French toast at patois. Go the grill and order the snapper sandwich and french fries. Smother the French fries in cheese sauce. Go to the Palms on Saturday night and try the lobster. Make sure to go to the bonfire and listen to Shiam. And, take out the hobie cat sailboats.

    We do look forward to the soups. The chilled soups are fabulous. The snapper sandwich at Sea Grapes is a great lunch. Fruit smoothies at the Palms at breakfast are a staple for us.

    Parker,

    Make sure you go to the Martini Bar. It is located upstairs at the Palms Restaurant. Also, you have to try snorkeling...if you haven't.....it is so relaxing and romantic. You are going to have a blast. CSA ROCKS!!!!

    You have made an excellent selection in resorts for your first trip to Jamaica. Since this is your first time to the island I will offer a little bit of "out of the ordinary" advice.

    DON'T listen to the stories about crime and violence on the island. We have been going to Jamaica for 22 years now and have never experienced anything negative in regards to this. The people are just wonderful, friendly people.

    DON't listen to anyone at the airport about being your tour company. Once through customs just keep walking until you see the Couples lounge. That is where you will get the information on your transfers.

    DO go with an open mind. It is a very poor country. What you will see on the bus ride to the resort needs to be regarded for what it is. Again, the people on the island are wonderful, hard working people who are just trying to live the best they can. Oh yeah, be ready for the ride of your life on the bus. It's can be a bit scary the first time, but the drivers are very good.

    DO take advantage of all the inclusions that CSA provides. They provide more than some of the other all-inclusive resorts. Like, the catamaran cruise, the trip to Margaritaville (which is walkable, but who wants to stumble back to the hotel), waterskiing, scuba, glass bottom boats, snorkeling, and on and on and on.

    DO wait to buy all your alcohol and/or cigaretts to take back home at the airport. The prices are really good at the airport on these things. Also remember, you can carry the alcohol on to the plane in JA, but if you transfer flights in the states, they will make you put it in your checked luggage after customs and immagration for your 2nd flight.

    DO take the orientation tour of the resort within a day or two. It shows you where everything is on the resort and provides a lot of useful information to help make your vacation all you want it to be.

    And last, but not least -- DON'T worry...DO be happy...you're in Jamaica and your staying at Couples Swept Away! It is AMAZING! Have a blast.

    You'll hear plenty of DO's so I'll give you a DON'T.

    DON'T wait a full year to book that return trip to your little piece of Heaven.
