Hi all,

I'm leaving for my cruise tomorrow morning, and I have one last question about excursion. We booked for cave tubing at berlize and stingray city at grandcayman etc. I'm wondering if it is safe to keep money or anything in the van when we go cave tubing. It says that we have to leave our bag in the van and I think we should be carrying anything with us.

Is it safe??? Don't know what to do with the money. Let me know what you guys did.

they may tell you things will be safe in the van, but I wouldn't trust money there..my husband has a velcro closing leg pocket on his swim trunks, we have a waterproof plastic case that we put money and a credit card in it and he keeps it on him, I also have a waterproof container that hangs ina string around my neck that I can carry money, id's etc in. If cameras, clothes etc, get stolen that can be replaced. Money, credit cards and ID's while traveling a different story.

I agree about the money - keep all credit cards, ID and money on your person. You can use a hip pack and put money in a ziploc bag to help keep it dry (two bags, one inside the other, is even better.) Take only a few dollars with you onshore - $10-20 or so (per person), mostly in smaller bills, to use for tips for the tour guide and whatever you may want to buy for souvenirs. (I tend to buy postcards and a t-shirt, so I'm a cheap date! ) Leave all the other cash you have for the trip in your cabin safe.
Have fun!

I left a $500 camera and wallet in their locked van. No problem. When you think about it, how long would they stay in business if they started stealing from their customers? The other posts had great advice. Do what makes you feel comfortable. I never carry much cash on an excursion. You're going to have a GREAT time on both of those excursions
