We've all heard of those people. They get up at the break of dawn and go treasure hunting. Be we have never seriously seen anyone like this until we paid a visit to the Marriott Marco Island Resort Golf Club And Spa in Florida. Our man was on a serious treasure hunt. He had all the accoutrements of someone who was an EXPERT at digging for diamonds, pearls, or whatever could be lurking underneath the golden sand of this south Florida haven. Now, he wasn't a nuisance, (we don't think) even with his handy dandy shovel, headphones and all kinds of tools. We were intrigued! And we were wondering if he'd be creating pot holes in the lawn sand with his intense investigation. But nope, he seems to be a regular and no one bothers him much. And that seems to be the way of life on Marco Island in particular, which we kind of like and will talk about more soon.

We didn't interrupt him and ask him what kind of booty he's been lucky enough to behold (that was probably a mistake on our part), but that's because we were trying to respect his hustle. Also, we didn't want him to think we were going to muscle in on his turf!

So, what's the caption for this "Diggin' for Silver Dollars?" "They Call Me The Trezhure Huntah" "Beach Bounty Hunter"? Yeah, you can def do bettah.

There are no pigs in the pool at the Palm Bay Beach Club on Great Exuma in the Bahamas, but the staff will certainly point you in the right direction should you find yourself jaded by the traditional dip with dolphins. This is one of those moments where photography truly speaks louder than words.

But let's give it a go anyway.There's a pig in that there crystal-clear water, for chrissakes! But he doesn't seem to want to play with our guy here. So, what would you name this photo? Marco Pig Polo? Having A Hog Wild Time? Yeah, you probably can do better.

If you're looking to find the party at an all-inclusive hotel, the pool area and swim-up bar are good places to start. There's always that one couple that parties just a little harder than the rest of the bunch, and they're not hard to spot at these resorts, especially during the off-season when occupancy is low. You either love them or you hate them, that's for sure.

Take this couple we caught in action at the Barcelo Puerto Vallarta, for example. You know the drill - we need your help with a side-splitting caption. Does this gal have cold hands, or is her man just happy to see us? Seems like one hell of a Christmas card!

Check this photo taken during a visit to the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki. There was something going down as a Japanese film crew commanded part of the beach to capture a pop-star's video.

But this couple sunning on the beach here? Didn't raise an eyebrow. Didn't move their backpack not one bit to see what all the fuss was about.

We were torn between watching them bake (and ignore the boom) and figuring out who was was being filmed. We're so nosy, we admit it!

So do we name this photo "Jaded in Oahu"? "The Nap Trumps All"? Or can you do better?

It was the wild scampering on our thatched roof at the Viceroy Riviera Maya that sent us running around our villa, wondering WTF was on our roof. Was it on fire? A crazy Mexican thunderstorm? Did we drink too much the night before?

But it was none of these things. Suddenly the scampering stopped and turned to jungle canopy thrashing.

We finally identified the crazy: two spider monkeys hanging out above the outdoor shower. Fumbling for the camera, we snapped this pic of this gray-bearded Papa Boo. But what is he doing there?

This one's a toughie, because it touches on Hurricane Sandy and as much as we'd like to think "new week, new start", we're flummoxed. Plus we know people are still out there affected by this disaster. If we can put a name on this, it might help should we ever encounter it again. We'll explain.

You're captioning the above picture. But first, you must look at the one below. See the difference? We looked more than a few times to make sure we weren't seeing things.

Hurricane Sandy, Gangnam Style?

We found this pic during our day-long Hurricane Sandy coverage and it seems to go along with the theme, so we figure, "Why Not?" It's courtesy of Grand Life Hotels and they call it "Taking on Sandy the only way we know how, Gangnam Style."

Cute. But we think you can do better.

We snapped this pic during a trip to the St. Kitts Marriott Resort. This "colorful" gentleman took our breath away he was so Rainbow Brite! We learned he gives island tours, and serves a mean rum punch from the back of his truck. Even more interesting? He spray paints his beard different colors every week!

Now, we gave our guy the name "Tangerine Man", to match his bus, but we think you can do better!

Check this photo we took during a visit to the Barcelo Karmina Palace Deluxe in Manzanillo, Mexico. We spotted three "grown ups" playing in the pool, making a bit more noise than you're supposed to at a romantic, relaxing all-inclusive. But, they were having way more fun than other guests that day, so we went straight creeper/paparazzi on them and snapped a quick pic.

However, we're not sure whether to name this photo "Synchronized Swimming Gone Wrong" or "Tequila Takeover". Or, do you have something better?
