We just decided an hour ago that we are fed up with this Canadian winter and want to go somewhere exotic and hot, within our budget, and we found this on redtag.ca.
We're staying at the Sunsol Isla Caribe! Trip advisor has pretty decent reviews, of course there were a few who were unhappy but we are very easy to please, and just grateful to be going somewhere warm, so I think we'll be fine.
We are world travelers and are not afraid of public transit, new food, etc. We aren't normally "all inclusive" travelers, normally we're hostel stayers, so this is quite exciting.
What would you recommend for two late 20's first timers?
Are there nice towns near by, or perhaps Sunsol is located in a nice area? I am trying to gather some information but this is all a bit overwhelming considering how fast it's happening.
Also we love day trips but all of the companies I've googled seem to include flights/more than one day..... any recommendations? Can we rent things like bikes/snorkel gear easily?
We love jungles, oceans, cities, restaurants. We don't want to spend EVERY day on the beach so we'd like to find some other options :)
Also is it a good idea to just exchange US money at our resort?
Sorry for all the questions but an hour ago I had never even heard of MI ;) Oh by the way.... we leave February 5th!
