For those of you interested, my review of Fantasy Island is now posted under the reviews section of the website. Hola CaribbeanqueenI was just reading your review of Fantasy Island and I have a couple of questions.First of all I was wondering how you booked your vacation package? Did you do it yourself via internet or did you go through a Scuba Diving Holiday booking agent?.I booked my vacation through a Scuba Holiday booking agent but I would like to book another way if that is possible?! Can you get last minute packages and travel arrangements?.Did you leave the resort at all and go shopping into Coxen Hole or the West End?. If so how did you get there and what was the cost?.Thanks,Freedom Ryder 8-)…………….

We booked back in the fall (October I believe). For us, it’s not really practical to book last minute since two week holidays seem difficult to come by on sell-offs, and if they were available, the cost savings would probably be eaten up by the additional airfare we would have to pay to get to Toronto without an advance booking.We went shopping in Coxen Hole. imo, the best way to get from FI to CH is by walking out to the road, and getting a cab. You’ll get a good rate if you ask the driver "collectivo?" meaning he’ll take you to CH, but may pick up and drop off people along the way. We got lucky and were able to get a collectivo cab at the FI gatehouse, and got to CH for $5 for the two of us. On the way back from downtown CH, we bargained down to $10-could have probably got it for a little less, but we were satisfied with that amount. If you are travelling with another person, ensure that the fare you agree to is "por dos". It is best to go to CH on a cruise ship day as there are many sidewalk shops open (which we heard from another couple were closed on non-cruise ship days).There are two main grocery stores on the island which are ideal for picking up your duty free liquor, cigarettes, coffee etc to bring back. By far the better of the two is "Warren’s" in CH (the other being "Eldon’s" on the main road at the French Harbour turnoff). Warren’s had a larger selection and better prices. Our great "Find" was Honduran hot-sauce (about $0.35 for a small 90 ml bottle and $0.75 for a larger 150 ml bottle) for different varieties. Any other ?’s….just askSaludCaribbean Queen y Cerveza Man
