    Were you able to book the Blue Hole Dive through the Hamanasi Resort? My fiancé and I will be staying there for our honeymoon and we booked the Reef and Rainforest package. They said that the Blue Hole dive is not guaranteed and we won’t know until we check in to see if there are enough divers for that location. Just curious as to how your experience was with booking it as the resort. Thanks!

      Hi Danielle! I believe we replied by email, but adding this here, just in case 🙂

      I booked my dive at the Blue Hole through Hamanasi. However, it’s a VERY long boat ride to the Blue Hole from Hamanasi (about 2-3 hours), because of that, it’s extremely weather-dependent. My schedule was pretty flexible during my stay there, so every morning I’d check-in to see if that was the day it was going to happen.

      If the Blue Hole is one of your number one things, the main town of is a place where lots of folks go out of, specifically for the Blue Hole. Definitely check on this!

      That said, you may want to consider either going there before or after you go to Hamanasi, so it’s closer to getting there and more likely to happen.

      I hope that helps!

🚨 Now sharing all of my favorite hotels in one spot! 🚨
I have thousands of articles on my travel blog, which is great, but can understandably feel overwhelming if you’re looking for something specific like hotel recommendations.

Which is why I’m super excited to let you know that I created a Travel Shop on the Expedia App where I’ll be sharing curated Collections from my travels to over 75 countries, with my favorite hotel stays, my own bucket list hotels, and getaway recommendations like “the best hotels for a girlfriend getaway”.

It’s so easy to navigate — you can book directly from the Expedia App or save to your profile for a future trip.

I’m working on adding Collections for everywhere I’ve traveled, so be sure to bookmark my Expedia Travel Shop so you can easily reference all of my hotel recommendations in one place.

I’m so excited to share that @the_baby_abroad family travel blog is now live! 👶🏼✈️
I’ll be sharing countless articles addressing the most common travel questions I got throughout my pregnancy, Oliver’s early travels, and now that he’s a BUSY toddler.

Of course, I’ll also be sharing all of my tips for flying with a little one, airline reviews (with kids in mind), comprehensive travel guides on the destinations we’ve traveled as a family, honest product reviews, and everything in between.

But what I’m most excited about is that this will be a community resource with tons of guest authors. Raising a child is such a unique experience for every family, and I personally love to see how ALL types of families travel.

My hope is that The Baby Abroad will become a resource that represents all types of families exploring the world with their kids at every stage of life.
I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along @the_baby_abroad! #thebabyabroad
