We have been back for a week now. Vacations are expensive even if you end up doing the all-inclusive deal.
Our flights, rides to and from the airport, hotel, and food we did through expedia and ended up costing $1031 for two weeks.
Medical insurance was $45.
I spent $620 while there!! Eeek! On what?!?!
Well $350 of it was on becoming open water SCUBA certified. That is good for a lifetime. I also did one additional dive which cost $40.
Then we did some day trips which ranged from $30 to $90 per person. We did a taxi tour of the city and cable ride up the mountain. We went snorkelling on Paradise Island. We did a plantation and a waterfall tour.
Then there were the other "extras" such as coconuts on the beach, drinks at a bar off the resort so we could watch hockey, cigars, rum, coffee, lunch while SCUBA diving, SCUBA pictures, cocao, mamajuana, and other souveniers for friends and family.
I bought an anklet for myself. A bottle of rum and a t-shirt for my dad. Some coffee, cocao, a bracelet, and a t-shirt for my mom. A bracelet for each of my roommates. I also bought some mamajuana to share with my family and another bottle for D. He doesn't know about this so I am going to give it to him for his birthday I think.
All in all the two-week trip cost $1696. Expensive sure, but it was an amazing trip :)
