Just before Thanksgiving, Nick, my mom, my brother and I took a week off and headed for warmer weather - San Salvador Island to be exact, which is part of the Bahamas. After Nick got certified to dive, he had been wanting to go somewhere to get back into the water. So, when Club Med sent us deals, Columbus Isle seemed like the perfect destination to dive and relax! Our trip was right after Sandy, so the waters were really rough (and a bit chilly) and the weather was a bit rainy, but that did not stop us from having a fantastic time!
When staying at all-inclusive resorts, the food is always a concern (is it going to be good?) With Club Med there is always plenty of delicious food. My favorite part of the spread is always bread and dessert. The white chocolate bread is worth the trip alone! I mean, I literally had a piece at every meal - I could not help myself!
Although the weather was not great, it made for some amazing rainbows!
Nick, my brother and I went diving three different mornings and even though the water was cold, we were OK diving. Even better, is doesn't matter if its raining under the water! In fact, the rain drops sounded so cool under there.

We definitely had a wonderful trip, but we quickly had to come back to reality (if we ever left it) because we were moving later that week! Club Med offers great get-aways, many of which are a quick trip from Boston and always have the most beautiful beaches. If you are a diver, Club Med makes it super simple to get in as many dives as you want. If you have ever thought about diving, they have a great staff of instructors too!
