SHORTCUTS TO OUR TOUR GUIDE SYSTEM SECTION HEADING
A traditional tour guide system comprises devices such as microphones and wireless receivers. Physical resorts like Sandals or Rio, their process may involve an audio tour guide arrangement. It requires the guide or interpreter to talk into a microphone while visitors listen to the commentary via a headphone or headset. Unlike a typical audio tour guide structure, islsnac has implemented a written virtual guide for our online guests to follow. Continue reading and participate in what may be your first digital tour guide experience.

THE TRANSCRIBED TOUR GUIDE SYSTEM
The homepage of the Islsnac online shopping getaway is referred to as the resort's main entrance or main lobby. There will be slight variations in how the Islsnac site is presented to you based on the device used. i.e. mobile, desktop, or tablet.
Let us commence the tour from the resort main entrance:
The resort's main entrance (homepage) was designed to access most of our website features with one to two clicks. But first, let me explain the broad overview of the fun environment of our virtual Caribbean resort. We have a lot in store for you!
Islsnac resort consists of five amenities, three are available for use, and two are under construction. Our available amenities for shopping are a Caribbean supermarket, Caribbean bakery, and the gift souvenir store. Our spa and fitness services will be up and operational soon. Stay tuned.
The main lobby may immediately dazzle your eyes with our rotating carousels of five rectangular boxes. Each box represents the amenities we provide. The beautiful color photos are not only in place for their visual effects and appeal, but also for easy access to whichever amenity products/services you would like to explore. Simply hover your cursor on each photo to identify the amenity. If you are not able to hover, the photos will provide a self-explanatory visual of the amenity it represents. For example: “the photo of the gentleman wearing the blue shirt and delivering Caribbean groceries to a home”. Clicking that box will lead you to the Caribbean supermarket main page. Go see for yourself and TRY IT NOW.
Above the rotating carousel on both mobile and desktop are the site main featured menu items and the resort's main heading introduction. Follow me. Continue reading. Let us take a closer look at the features above the rotating carousel.
Navigational tricks on multiple devices:
On the homepage (the resort main entrance) you will be greeted happily with the words: “Caribbean Online Shopping Resort”, “Caribbean goodies, Jamaican food, and more! Snacation Reimagined!”. These are our main headline to jumpstart your virtual Caribbean shopping.
For seasoned snacationers that are already familiar with our site, please go directly to the search box, the topmost part of all site pages, and type what you may be searching. For example, if you type the phrase Jamaica drink as a query in the search box, a dropdown list is revealed. The dropdown gives options to click a category of choice that matches your query. The possible category topics to choose from in the dropdown, are products, pages, or blog posts about your search term or phrase. In this example, Jamaica drink is your search term. With the many options available, you will be directed to a page where you will be shown our Jamaica drink information to make a purchase, view a recipe, or articles for your research purposes. Both the newbies (visitors who are not yet a snacationer) and seasoned snacationers (site members and loyal shoppers). Go see for yourself and TRY IT NOW
