Calling home?

How do most guests of Staniel Cay Yacht Club communicate with family in the US? How reliable is the internet? Has anyone used face time with their iPhone and found it reliable? Is the internet free at the yacht club bar/restaurant? We are so looking forward to our trip but do need to be able to check in as often as possible with family. Any help will be appreciated.

Do you and your family text ? We found at SCYC and also in a couple other places in the out islands that we had no problem sending or receiving texts (had T-Mobile at that time) and that it was much, much cheaper and a flat fee like maybe 25 cents per text (where they are free at home with plan) .

Be sure to check with your phone carrier for the best ideas to avoid big fees.

Have a great trip.

The internet is not Hi Speed so Face Time may not be an option. You can purchase Internet access at the bar for $5 a day. E mail or text are your least expensive options.

SCYC has a payphone booth right on the property. You can purchase calling cards from the bartender there. I used that phone numerous times without any problems.

I used skype, as did other guests and we had no problems.
