Hi cruisers...heading to costa maya on my 3/31-4/5 western carribbean with Jewel of the Seas...and would like to snorkel. I've been trying to research the best areas to snorkel off the beach, we are bringing our own equipment and wondered if anyone has tried Almaplena Beach...there is a Beach Day excursion offered on-board...they just say Jungle Beach Day...but don't specify which beach. Almaplena looks to be an all you can eat and drink spot for $59/person with free transportation from port...from what I see about the on-board excursion reservation, food is extra $$ at the beach they're offering....any informed opinions out there? Thanks!
Do a Google search for "Costa Maya reviews" and you will see lots of comments from another large cruise enthusiast site. $59 sounds like a lot of money for a trip to a beach, there are many cheaper. Do some reading first.
Costa Maya has lots of beaches with good snorkeling, as does Cozumel.:o
