    Hi girls - I noticed a post on here about booking "adventures" through the hotel or through the company directly. I realize the post is old, but thought I'd add my two cents for you all...When you book through your hotel, they are almost always charging you more than the company would itself, essentially allowing them to collect a fee for providing you this service. If you are trying to save a little money then go DIRECTLY to the source. Here's an example, while we were down for our site visit, my fiance and uncle decided to go deep sea fishing. Knowing how things work, they refused to let me book something in advance. So we all walked down to the marina one day for them to find a boat for themselves. They found a boat , grabbed one of the guides as he was getting off the boat, and negotiated and arranged a trip for the next day. The price they got was MUCH less than what I could have booked one for. The next day they got on the boat and the captain asked them how much they were charged. They told him and the captain said he charges $100 less if you book directly through him. In other words, the guide collected $100 for himself just for booking the trip for his own captain! We ran into this more than once...just an FYI!

      Our guys are planning either a fishing trip or golf trip the day before the wedding & the women...spa time of course : )

      We are also going to have some fun events like beach volleyball, happy hour, wine tasting etc that don't require extra fees because they are included in our resort fees
