We are also going on the Carnival Legend March 26th. A friend of ours went on the same trip a couple of weeks ago and said not to book tours through the ship. There were supposedly lots of taxi/tour companies meeting the ships doing the same types of tours for FAR less than Carnival charges and were just as good. Not sure yet if we'll try this yet. She said get a group of 6-8 people together and go!

In Belize we took a water taxi to Caye Caulker and went snorkelling on our own from there. Only cost us 12 round trip for the taxi and the snorkelling was inexpensive. Better than a ship run tour.
Would definitely suggest this is the way to go. Neat experience.

The one piece of advise I hear is to definetly book tours whether private or ship for these ports. Don't venture out on your own. Belize, make sure the taxi license plate is green, thus lisenced by the state. Costa Rica there are private organized tours offered from a canopied stand with people in red shirts. Don't know anything about Colon accept to stay within the cruise port area only - don't wander outside the area. We hope to go Cave Tubing in Belize, take a Tortugero Canal tour at Limon and the Ocean to Ocean train tour to Panama City as we have been through the canal before. Best advise is get a copy of your ship's tours to compare what there is to do at each port. Carnival will fax them to you.

Whitewater rafting in Costa Rica is really great - best excursion we've ever been on. We didn't see any evidence of private tour operators at the pier in Puerto LImon, Costa Rica when were were there in January.
