Hi all,

 

Just hoping you could look this over and let me know whether the info looks right and/or whether we've forgotten anything! I think we've been staring at it for so long that we've lost all perspective. =)

 

Any input much appreciated!!

It looks great! That reminds me I needed to get some eco friendly sunscreen. I wanted to buy some for everyone, but it was pricey. Now the snorkeling trip will be in a cenote so I don't think we'd need to worry about it. It that right? It's just about coral isn't it?

 

Our guests are only staying 3nights so I don't think anyone else will have time to snorkel in the ocean. I'll get a bottle for us & another to share incase someone is snorkeling.

Thanks for the feedback!

 

I wanted to get eco-friendly sunscreen for everyone too, but was having the same affordability issues. I was considering buying a box of individual packets through smartshield.com and just placing a couple in each OOT bag in order to make sure they have at least one or two applications.

 

As for cenotes versus ocean snorkeling, that's a good question. Cenotes are part of a vast underground network of rivers, and all that freshwater does run straight to the ocean so all the chemicals travel. But the nice thing about cenotes is that they're often quite shady, so sunscreen might not be as necessary. In fact, I've often used (and recommended) just an extra-large t-shirt to cover backs and shoulders--the areas most exposed when snorkeling.

 

Funny that your guests might not do any ocean swimming. That's always the first thing I do when I get to a seaside hotel: drop all luggage, throw on swimsuit, and walk-almost-run to the water. =)

they will definitly swim in the ocean. I guess I thought the sunscreen was just for snorkeling because you were getting closer to the coral. I've never read to use it when you just get in the ocean. I guess I will need to look some stuff up.

the cenotes will be right after the coba trip so we'll definitly be wearing sunscreen all day.

LOL. Good question, but we were actually going Shakespearean. (That'll teach us!)

From dictionary.com:
verb (used without object)
1.to hasten; speed; go in haste.
–verb (used with object)
2.to hasten (oneself): Hie yourself down to this once-in-a-lifetime sale!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
