You do not get wristbands, but are allowed to visit from 10am until 4pm as part of the Trading Places program. You just need to register as a Romance Rewards member and sign-up for the day visit once you arrive.
However, you cannot participate in anything that requires reservations, such as horseback riding.
The swaping to CTI is called "Trading Places" You have to resgister for Romance Rewards, sing up a 24 hours in advance, it goes on Mon,Weds & Fridays from approx. 10 AM to 4 PM. Transporation is provided. Sorry to say you cannot take advantage of spa credits, cat cruise or horseback riding, You can eat and drink to your hearts content, enjoy the pools, go to the island,enjoy the beaches and use the excercise equipment.
If you decide you want to go back to CSS before 4 PM you have to pay for a cab
We did it last year and it was great!
We are staying at CSS in May and I was wondering how the day swap works with CTI. Do we get wrist bands that allow us to enjoy all of the all-inclusives at CTI?
We also would like to go horseback riding. Can we schedule this at CSS for CTI?
No wrist bands, you first enroll in the Romance Rewards program, then once you're at the resort schedule a Trading Places day, which runs on Mon, Wed, & Fri.
Since the TP day only goes from 10am to 4pm, I don't think you'll be able to take advantage of the horseback riding, as I believe this departs before you would arrive. The same thing in reverse with the cat cruise if you were by chance also interested in that as well, being the cruise would return too late and the van back to CSS will have already departed.
We're doing just the opposite during our stay at CTI - we plan on visiting CSS.
Reading is fundamental. It's just that for some, it's more mental than fun.
You do not get wrist bands and no, sorry you can not do the horseback riding. You are only allowed to the things that do not require a reservation and are on site. You are free to try out the island if you chose to, the pools, Jacuzzis, Patio, Pool Grill, Veggie Bar, Swim Up bar, & Main Bar.
