The park was beautiful and well-maintained and there was a full itinerary of activities that were included as part of the all inclusive pass, or you could just opt-out of them and lay on the beach and drink. You did not have a server, which saved money on tips, but also meant that you were always walking back and forth between the bar and beach area. They would only give you one drink at a time and the beers were small and the margaritas tasted like sugar syrup. The beach area is very small, but you can enter the water through any of the various staircases that are used for snorkeling. The snorkeling tour with Alex was really good. We spent awhile in the water and got to see tons of tropical fish, coral formations, and underwater statues. It was a great opportunity for people new to snorkeling or scared of the open ocean to get a glimpse of life under the sea. The park was pretty big and not all of the drink stands and activities were included in the all-inclusvie pass, so I found that a little confusing. I ended up paying an extra $16 for margaritas from one of the vendors. They were really, REALLY good and I got to the keep the hand-painted cup that they were served in, but had i known before i ordered them that there was an additional change, I probably would not have. The tequila tasting and guac cooking lesson were great, also.
