For this trip, if I book single occupancy and a non-diving friend joins me later, will I be refunded the difference between single and double occupancy? Also, I assume if the trip sells out, my friend would still be able to book into my room since I was originally signed up as sole occupant-correct?

Hey Jeff gotta give you credit for being thorough hitting several forms of communications with me. Sorry I did not see this right away after replying the others.

 

YES if you book s/o and add another person you will be refunded the difference between d/o and s/o and they will be charged d/o and even if the trip is sold out her spot would be protected because she would be sharing your room.

 

I think that covers all of it. Let me know if I missed anything?  And actually this is quite common.  Thanks and I hope you join us! Kamala

Hi Eric! To answer your questions yes at this time there are a few spots left both D/O and S/O and you can sign up for a trip as late as the week before it starts but obviously there is no guarantee any spots will still be available. We are just entering the period where folks are looking at that time of year and already are seeing sign ups surging so our advice is to decide quickly and book your spot soon!

Hi!  I'm so excited about this trip!  I have a couple questions.  

 

1.  What is the daily schedule for yoga and diving?  What times do they start?  If we do three dives a day, is the 3rd dive after lunch?  Do we come in for lunch and go out again, or is lunch on the boat?

 

2.  For the costume party, is there a theme?  I noticed in the picture, everyone is pirates.    

 

3.  What is the best way to handle currency there?  Do they take US dollars?  Should I get Honduras $$ ahead of time?  I assume I wouldn't need much since it is all-inclusive, but for shopping and stuff. 

 

Thanks!

Hi Karin...thanks for the great questions. Here is the plan!

 

Q.  What is the daily schedule for yoga and diving?  What times do they start?  If we do three dives a day, is the 3rd dive after lunch?  Do we come in for lunch and go out again, or is lunch on the boat?

A. Yogo is in the early am before we start our day. We have a nice place at each resort to do the yogo out of the elements but still so you can see the beach and/or the ocean whenever possible.  After yogo we have breakfast and then head out for the first two dives. We come back for lunch and then head out for the 3rd dive after lunch Sometimes we can do another yoga session and/or wellness session and of course Happy Hour starts around 4 or 5 and then dinner a bit later around 7. 

 

Q. For the costume party, is there a theme?  I noticed in the picture, everyone is pirates.    

A Yes we have a theme which will be announced closer to the trip. We need 10 participants due to the size of prizes and usually the contest taps into your inner creativeness. For example we will often choose a letter of the alphabet and you create a costume based upon something that starts with that letter. So when we did "s" we had starwars characters, we had a seashell, we had a 'street person we had a superhero etc. 

 

Q. What is the best way to handle currency there?  Do they take US dollars?  Should I get Honduras $$ ahead of time?  I assume I wouldn't need much since it is all-inclusive, but for shopping and stuff. 

A. They accept US Dollars so no need to chg currency. We usually do a ton of last minute trip updates for everyone regarding all these matters but I am happy to answer some of them early. We will give you ideas about how much cash you will need closer to the trip but basically yes it covers any personal shopping, any meals off the resort (sometimes people like to head out and explore) and you'll need cash for tips. Tips for diving and resort services are not part of the pkg and can not be put on a credit card. However we do have a way for you to obtain add'l cash if you run short and that will be summarized in our Pre Trip Updates that start a couple of weeks before we depart.

 

I hope this answered all your questions. Thank you, Kamala
