Hi Boneman. Welcome.
I can only speak for Cozumel and Belize.

The snorkeling in Belize is wonderful. I've snorkeled at Goff's Caye. Beautiful reefs, tropical fish, crystal clear waters, all set around a tiny island.

In Cozumel, I have snorkeled at Chankanaab Marine Park several times. I haven't been back since Wilma came through. Many on this site have stated that it hasn't been the same since. The snorkeling, as I remember it, was excellent.

I am sure you will get many more responses offering advice.

Have a great cruise.

Costa Maya is a definite beach day. Go right outside the port and grab a taxi or the little zebra bus taxi and go to Mahahual Beach. ($3 pp to get there). Once you're there walk straight ahead and see the "Cat's Meow". Find George or Barbara and then sit yourself down for some drinks,food and beach time. Tell George or Barbara that you want a beach massage and ask to have them get you someone really good. They will gladly do that. THEN you get to partake in a wonderful $20 (for 45 minute) massage that was almost as good as the massage therapist that I have been using for the last 15 years. It was a wonderful, wonderful, relaxing day and we didn't want to leave. We WILL return!

Santo Tomas is awful There simply is nothing to do. They have a nice visitors center there with shops and shows by the locals. Santo Tomas is a port...period! It's a shipping port...so not much there. We went to the Amatique Bay resort there...boring!!! Just not much to do.

Same thing with Costa Maya...boring!! Not much to do there. There is a make believe village they set up at Majajual which is a short $3 bus ride away. But it's pretty bland and very touristy.
