Paid $140 for entry to this "all-inclusive" park. We booked the excursion through our resort. Once we arrived we learned that all inclusive was really just ONE meal and from only one of a couple of the restaurants. We didnt have the choice of all...More

We are going in august with an 11 and 16 year old. Are daughter isn't a fan of snorkelling. We have been looking at tickets and it seems very expensive is it really worth the money as there are mixed reviews.
