    Been lurking too long, finally booked a trip to GP and going to get our feet wet - TTR and Desire are on the radar.. Lets see how the first experience goes -

    Any current feedback about GP would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    When will you be there? We will be there 16th-23rd. It will be our first visit to GP but we have been to the other two. We totally recommend both.

    Thanks very much, Donald.

    What are some samples of Pesos to carry, tip etc..

    And.. Is it difficult to get a day pass to temptations? We tried to book there but left it too late.. GP and Sens was our second choice and Desire if we drank a bottle of Cabo Wabo while bookin online!

    I order 100x 20 peso notes , and 50 x 50 peso notes ( about 425 CDN cost) from my personal bank .

    For large purchase and booking excursions I use my travel credit card .

    day or night passes for a couple is usually the same as a room at TTR .
