You will love this resort.. We just got back on mar 8/05 with a group of 10. We did not book the bay tour with signature. Try to book with Indio .. You can find him on the beach. He took us on a private boat for a cost of 50.00 american. We fished and went to an excusive beach where he cleaned the fish for us to eat.. It was amazing.. There is a bank machine at the hotel entrance. You can withdraw money there.. Do not change at hotel. They were not giving a good rate. Shopping in La Cusicita is better than Santa Cruz. Lots of good shops and flea markets.. The ocean in front of the hotel is great for swiming. Food is great. Lots to choose from. Go to the disco in the hotel. We spent a lot of time in there at night. Dont be afraid to go out off the property. There is lots to see.. Have a good time

We are thinking about a trip to this resort in early May. Any tips you receive about your trip and your impression of the resort once you return would be greatly appreciated!

This is a wonderful area and you will love it. You can read our review under the Gala resort, it has pics of the area, and shows the panga boat we went on to see the other beaches and go snorkeling. Both Santa Cruz and La Crucecita were interesting to visit. There is decent snorkeling on the east end of the beach by the rocks in front of the Gala. Have a great time!
