In case anyone thought I had drowned in the snow ::), we booked last minute to Cayo Coco on ACV and got a super deal with an oceanview.
Something to add to the currency exchange post:
There was no Cadeca at the resort and I was told, there were none in Cayo Coco at all now. Ouch. We got 94CUC/CDN $ Would not give a receipt and it was take it or leave it. Many afternoons, they ran out CUCs and you had to wait.
One day I walked up to reception at noonish, asked for $40. as we were headed to Playa Prohibita and the clerk is standing there with a handful of CUCs he’s counting and tells me in a straight face that there in no money. ??? ??? ??? ???
So I walk across the lobby to customer relations, ask nicely, then ask with more force, she says to go back to the reception and they suddenly ‘find’ enough money for me. :o :o :o :o
The store accepted Cdn. Mastercard but my card would not work. The clerk blamed it on my card but I had the same problem with a different one a year ago at the duty free. If the connection is bad, it times out and you get rejected.
I’ll do a full review when I get a chance. Interesting that the prices for next week have doubled from our cost. :o
