How about snorkeling with the Sting Rays in Grand Cayman, its one of the best excursions you can do??

As for zip lining, I did one in Jamaica that was really good, never just a few feet off the ground. I know they are turning up all over these days, but that one was worth it, didn't know they offer it in Cozumel and Grand Cayman.

Cozumel offers great Parasailing, single and double, the flight provides a great view of the island and the Mayan Riviera Mainland...it is availale to pre-book Parasailing, there is a lot of demand...good luck!

Don't think you will find horses in the water at Cayman or Cozumel - never heard of it there.

We just got back from Grand Cayman (june 1st) and did the sting rays. We used Captain Marvins and they were amazing. They went to two other snorkeling areas than the ship's excursion and was cheaper.

Even if you don't go with Captian Marvins, make sure you go to the sting ray island. It was the highlight of my trip. It can't be described.
