Calica is a gravel pit... seriously it is. So from there you can catch a cab to Playa Del Carman which has all of the places to eat, beach and shopping. You can also go to Xcaret (Eco park) which is wonderful. No need to book excursions for either. When I was there, cab ride was 15 minutes from either and cost $10.

I second the suggestion above that said to grab a cab and go into town. Calica really is a gravel pit, we were shocked to find that this was true. There are a few vendors right by where the ship pulls in, but we found them more expensive than those that were in town. Our first trip here we took a cab to the ruins and the second time we went into the town to shop. The beach here was also very nice and we enjoyed the cool off in the clear water with the nice soft sand. Whatever you decide to do, I honestly don't think you'd need an excursion here.
