Take a cab, after you get to the turtle farm and pay your admission, put the car seat down along a wall, I can't imagine anyone taking it.

We constantly have car seat concerns when traveling. Just keep in mind that not all cabs in the Caribbean will have working seat belts -- they might, but you never know...
Good Luck!

For $15 per person I believe, we just took a taxi tour to a few main spots. The turtle farm, past 7 mile beach and to "Hell". It was a round trip ride from the pier and back and we were done in about 2 hours at the most. Maybe not even that long. The taxi driver got us in for a cheaper rate as a "tour" but that was last year and I don't remember the price. Sorry.

We're concerned about the same for our upcoming cruise. We're going to get a portable car seat from www.onestepahead.com called a tote n go. It's $30 but lightweight. I still need to order it. I've been checking out options & that's the best I could find.

TO KJF:
Thanks for your input -- I hadn't heard of portable car seats! I'd love to hear from you once you get it and put it into use to see if it was worth the investment.
Smooth sailing,
