ok planning our sept trip. It includes grand cayman and belize. I think we are going to snorkel in grand caymans at eden rock. anyone have comments on this?
no clue what to do in belize or roatan. we do love to snorkel. shopping...have no desire to do that. any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
Roatan is a snorkeling and diving paradise. We took an excursion on a sailboat that included snorkeling. There was a similar catamaran excursion offered. But we took a 1/2 hour bus ride to get there. I'm not sure how close the swimming areas are to the ship, someone else may know.
We snorkeled at Belize and it was fabulous. It is a LOOONG tender journey to the port so we figured to catch a boat going the other way to the reef. They brought us directly back to the ship as well. Been on shore and there is nothing in the town I need to see. This was a ship's excursion.

Mayan ruins in Belize if you are into Mayan culture....I took the Belize River and Mayan tour the last time I was there...saw Hollar Monkeys, manatees, lizards, lots of birds, crocs...to me, it was well worth the time and money....On Roatan I took the island tour...once you get into the countryside, it's beautiful.....you do have to run the gauntlet of taxis, and people selling everything....Happy Cruising...
The first time we went to Belize we went to Goff's Caye. It was truly beautiful, and could have been a sight for a Corona commercial. The only thing was you couldn't get a Corona or any other beer at that time. That was in 2002 though. Anyone been on the island recently?
Last year we just walked around and shopped. Not much fun for me. The Cave Tubing looks like fun, and has been highly recommended by many members here. So that is on my radar for this year.
We got rained out last year on Roatan, we had booked an excursion for Tabyana Beach. I don't know what to plan this year either.
