Default Western Caribbean

Our ports will be Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Belize and Costa Maya. Does anyone know if there are jetskis to rent anywhere at these ports. Also, what are the best things to do at these ports. This is our first cruise and we're trying to get some ideas of some fun things to do.

The most unusual and fun tour in the Western Caribbean is Sting Ray City in Cayman. Not to be missed!!

Jet skiing in Cozumel is easy. Lots of great beaches, and jet skis and snorkeling, parasailing available at most of them.

Belize.. either the cave tubing, or snorkel tour to Cauy Caulker.

Costa Maya... maybe a tour to the Mayan ruins.

I agree with Kuki, Sting Ray City is not to be missed. We just did it and on a day when the ocean was rough so the Princess excursion was canceled. It ended up that we were the only boat out there! It was a chance of a lifetime!

We are hooked, but not booked Can't wait to cruise again!

I agree with them both - stingrays is not to be missed. We did that two years ago and are going there again in Jan. Cozumel we are doing the Sea Trek Helmets which is another not to be missed.

In the village of Mahahual,(2 miles from the Costa Maya boat dock,) they have parasailing, jet ski rental, snorkeling, and very, very, safe and delicious food at any of the restaurants. There are also beautiful beaches next to crystal blue water. There is also a big touristy mall at the actual pier that offers shopping, food, little shows, and a saltwater pool. The beach is rocky at the pier so you will need aqua shoes. You should drink bottled water wherever you choose to go but drinks and food are totally safe and out of this world. Oh yes, there are dive outfits in town also.
