Everyone there was great, and by the time we left, I'd felt like I'd made friends... More

We took the catamuran out of Ocean Blue and Sands Resort. Just the ride was worth the money. The snorkeling was amazing. Make sure to stuff a water bottle full of bread. Once you squeeze some bread into the water you are instantly surrounded by beautiful fish. The sandbar stop was so much fun. We learned how fun a plastic... More

The trip itself was wonderful and beautiful, food was really good too. The time in the water was really nice. The only complaint would be was the organization on transportation in getting us there.
