Hi everyone,

We are stopping at 4 ports, belize, roatan island, grand cayman, and cozumel. Just wondering which place is good for shore excursion and which is good for self tour.

It really depends on what you are interested in doing and the amount of time you are in port. Whenever you tender, time becomes a critical factor in your decision. (Belize, Cozumel and Grand Cayman are all tender ports). What kind of shore excursions were you interested in?

oh wow, all three are tender ports. Well we were thinking about some snokling, horse back riding, cave tubing ...etc...which one is the best for snokling?

Here are the links to my cruise reviews. All of those ports are covered in them. Keep in mind that Grand Cayman is a 2 minute tender ride, while Belize is probably 20 minutes...

Carmen,
All 3 of those ports offer good snorkeling. If you are interested in doing Cave Tubing - then that would be done in Belize, and I suggest you use Reggie. I did a special report on that excursion for Port Reviews: http://www.caribbeanportreviews.com/Belize51.htm
You might want to checkout the other information on all of your ports at that site as well.

However, in Belize there are also great snorkeling trips offered by the cruise lines that pick you up directly from the ship (no tendering involved) to transport you to the Belize Barrier Reef for snorkeling (Ambergris Caye, Shark/Ray Alley and Sergeant's Caye are all good).

Snorkel and Stingray City with one of the local tour operators in Grand Cayman is also another good option. I have used Captain Bryan with great success.

Nancy
