Your average drink can cost between $15-$22.

But honestly, you can save money on alcohol by purchasing a bottle from the airport or at a gift shop inside the resort.

Our drink charges were not bad at all.

Guess it depends on how much of a ‘buzz’ you prefer. Lucky for our husbands; Jennifer, Thyna, and I are light-weight, daiquiri drinkers.

We really enjoy exploring new destinations together.

On most Caribbean getaways, we’re either exploring off-site or booking an exciting excursion. But this time, we didn’t bother to leave the resort.

One thing for sure — Baha Mar never failed to keep us busy!
