Kids participate in the pool opening, water ceremony each morning at the pool. They chant to bring the water gods to life. Its a cute little activity they do with the kids along with other water games that they play during the day. kids can go as high as the first set of large vines crossing the pyramid.

I Am Really Thinking About Trying Out This Resort For Spring Break 2009...any Thoughts...it Will Be Me, Dh, Dd(11), Ds(2). We Like Renting A Car So Busses Do Not Matter. Cabanas 8a, Maybe? This Seems Like An Enjoyable Resort For Sprink Break...the Lake, Pools, Boats, Bikes, Etc.

Great pictures, Buzz! Looking forward to our Aug/Sept trip!

I never saw an update on the 2008 Dining Plan. Are Pepper Market and Cafe Rix on the dining plan?

Thanks!

CSR has 4 conveniently located bus stops, one in each of the villages and one at the main building. None of the buildings are far from a bus stop.

The ranchos are the furthest from the main building so getting to the restaurants and lobby are far but there are 3 options. Use the Internal Shuttle System, take a bus to the main building or walk.

WALK
The distance around the whole lake is just under a mile (.97 miles).

Walking Distances
From El Centro moving clockwise around the lake path to:
Casitas 3 = .16 miles
Casitas 4 = .24 miles
Casitas 5 = .27 miles
Ranchos = .46 miles

From El Centro to the Dig Site, via the bridge near the Cabanas
= .35 miles

From El Centro moving counterclockwise around the lake to:
Cabanas 9B = .16 miles
Cabanas 9A/8B = .22 miles
Cabanas 8A = .31 miles
Rancho 7b = .35 miles

INTERNAL SHUTTLE
CSR offers an internal shuttle system to help guests get around the resort. The internal shuttle is now called the courtesy coach. CSR has a new extra long golf cart that is lime green. The courtesy coach only goes in one direction and will make flag stops along the route if there is room on the cart. It is being utilized by many guests.

I was sporadically getting email updates on the old thread. Hopefully, it will be more consistent with this one.

I'm looking forward to my trip 3/24-3/30 with DW, DS(11), and DD(8).

The courtesy shuttle and bell services are separate. One has nothing to do with the other. They also use different carts. Bell services is probably open 24/7.
