This trip was AWESOME. We didn't really know what to expect but all avenues of this trip exceeded our expectations. The price was far below the competitors and would have been willing to pay much more for everything that we got. Will do this again...More

A hat, sunblock, pants, and a closed shoe preferably with a heal. I would wear a shirt that shades your shoulders. I loved this experience both times I went.
