Caribbean discounts

In one month (August 14-17) Castaways will be flying to the sandy shores of Bolongo Bay Resort on St. Thomas for a fun filled four days of island relaxation, rum appreciation, and island hopping. There’s still time to book your Castaway package, but if you can’t make it I’ll be posting live photo updates during the event.

For those of you that are going here is the itinerary for the beach bash. Things are subject to change and please don’t feel obligate to do everything, just relax and enjoy the Virgin Islands. After all, that’s what being a Castaway is all about!

Friday’s day trip to Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands is completely optional and separate from the Bolongo Bay package. It’s something I’m putting together that I thought you guys might like. Passports are required to enter the BVI and the round-trip ferry ticket is $70. Don’t feel obligated to attend this excursion, it’s completely up to you.
