My parents will be on Celebrity in Feb. and they're not going to snorkle. They'd love to hang out at tge 7 mile beach. Is paying $17 through Celebrity the only way to get onto the beach? And how much is the cab to go there?
Also, they're thinking of going to a beach in Ocho Rios and Cozumel. Any ideas for there considering that they're not into snorkling? I read about a hotel in Cozumel but I don't understand if it's free or not.
I wouldn't use the ships tour to the beach in Cayman. All of them use the same place and it isn't the best beach. Just grab a cab ( about $3-5pp ) and have them take you to the Westin or Marriott. The beaches in GC are all public and you can ask the hotel if you can use their chairs. I think they will all let you if you buy a drink or something. The beach is much nicer out that far.
Just returned from W. Caribbean cruise. Tell your parents about Chaakanab National Park. They can take a cab for about $8.00. Food & drinks available on beach, plus snorkeling if anyone with them is interested. Also, botanical gardens, beautiful lagoon with tropical fish, dolphins & sea lions, archeological site, etc. Wonderful place to spend a few hours of whole day. Judi
