    Sounds like plenty to me. We don't ever stay that long, and spend quite a bit of time at the resort. That is over $200 per day, and will get you a lot of fun. The two of us usually don't spend about half that much per day.

    To spend all of that, I would expect that you would have to tip very well at the resort, eat out several nights, go out to the bars several times, and go on a couple of tours over the course of your trip.

    You can always bring some back, or just take less with you and use the ATM for more cash. Use the safe wisely if you are bringing $3000 cash.

    Sounds like lots to me. We don't do to many tours but, spent 500.00 US while we were there last month. We did Carlos N Charlies, Dady O's, Coco Bongos, and the booze cruise and the rest of the time was spent at BBG.
    Coco bongos = 40.00 US/person
    Jungle Tous = probably 150.00
    don't know about the others but, even tipping really good your probably fine.

    Should be plenty of cash...we stay for 2 weeks at a time and usually spend around 1000 Canadian...we don't usually bring cash though...just use our bank card and withdraw as we need it...if your card is on the interac/plus system usually not a problem.

    :D We it all depends on what you want to do and see.. We spend about $1000.00 for 9 days.. We hit clubs(prices are anywhere from $35.00 to $40.00 open bar)

    Tours are all different prices.. If you plan on doing lots of things I would say $1000.00 is good
