We traveled to Almaplena aboard the Carnival Dream. I'll admit, the cab ride was a little scary due to traveling so far into the middle of nowhere. OMG! was the ride worth it!!!!!!
Upon our arrival we were greeted immediately and asked when we wanted to go back. Um, do we have to?!?! We were brought inside and shown where the bar and dining area were as well as the showers and restrooms. Then we were shown the beach chairs and were told to pick anywhere we like. The next question was "what would you like to drink!!"
We picked chairs right on the water and our drinks arrived, and arrived, and arrived and...well you get the picture. When it was time for lunch they called us up to eat and provided us with some of the best food we've ever eaten, and oh yeah, more drinks!
We snorkeled the reefs which were huge and beautiful. I was very impressed with the snorkeling and would say it was the best of our trip. The staff was so friendly and went out of their way to make us as comfortable as possible. WE WILL BE BACK!!!
