Hello! I am planning to see the Stingray City sandbar in Grand Cayman. How much time do I need to allow to get off the ship? How long does it take to get to the departure location for Soto's or CAptain Marvin's?
Also, in Cozumel, how does Chankanaab Park compare to Paradise Beach? I have 3 children, so I want to choose a destination with plenty for them to do. Also, are there beach unbrella and chair rentals?
In Coz we liked Chankanaab very much. Plenty of chairs and palpalas (think I spelled it correctly) if you go there first thing off the ship. Equiptment rentals, lockers ,showers and food/drinks all available. Very nice day there.
Soto's meeting point is right at the end of the pier. We got in line early to get off the ship, we didn't wait for the announcement. We were in one of the first tenders and it didn't take long at all. If you're going during DST they will be an hour behind anyway (if you ship stays on ship time).
My kids loved Chankanaab Park. I haven't been to Paradise Beach so I can't compare the two.
Hope this helps.
