Good to know about the sunscreen. I totally killed my costa rica trip with a terrible sunburn so will keep that in mind. Thanks for all the tips and the TR.
Enjoy. Have a great trip. I look forward to hearing how it went...

« Reply #43 on: April 17, 2014, 09:32:44 PM »
December Xmas/New Years 2014-2015 Westin Dawn for redeeming points requires
-minimum 7 night stay, total 92,000 points
-15% tax on rack rate, comes out to $650 ( I called twice and they said these are not a tax (taxes are included in points)
-$3400 charge on credit card the day of booking, which will be refunded, not sure when
-90 day cancellation policy, if cancel before 90 days, lose $3400
-resort fee $20 night, I understand this

is above new or standard during holiday weeks??

I stayed at the radisson blue, it was pretty nice. You can drive around the whole island in around an hour maybe slightly 1.5 hours if you do a circle around the whole island. Maho beach is great for plane watching.

I stayed at the Simpson Bay Resort and Marina, it was really nice.

The chabad there is awesome! They have a bit of kosher food (meat, cheeses, ice cream) that you can buy from them and may have shabbos meals. Call them in advance.

This thread makes me hate Sandy so much.

So what's good to do here? I am going for 5 days the beginning of November. I hear there is good snorkeling, scuba diving,  jet ski tours, and zip lining.  What else is there? Which beaches are the best? Are there hostels there that I can just show up and get a bed for say $20 a night? TIA!!!
Never got to go. And they didn't refund my ticket even though there was no way for me to get to NY as my flight was one of the first ones out after Sandy 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
