Hi again. No news on flight changes until tomorrow, but I have a question about personal belongings during my Grand Cayman stingray excursion. We'll have at least a bag/purse and our S&S shoes, shorts, etc. Where does this stuff go when you're in the water?

Also, has anyone been to Island Village in Ocho Rios? We're not booked for an excursion and I haven't seen anybody talk about this place--it looks like a tourist-trap, but with nice landscaping. I'm up for that, but I've wondered why no one has mentioned it.

We have done the stingray tour twice in Cayman islands. You will leave your stuff on the boat that will take you out to the sandbar. The boat will stay with you the whole time so your stuff will be safe.

As for ocho rios we have been there twice. We usually do the dunns river falls and that's it this is not a nice island especially to walk around town. They are always coming up to you offering you drugs. I really don't like any island in jamaica.

We did the same as Charley. No one will touch your belongings on the stingray excursion. Some people will get off and on the vessel during the swim. But, all-in-all your things should be okay. If you feel more comfortable, do an inspection when you get back on the boat.

Do you feel you must must take your purse?

Others have said no one will touch your "stuff" and that's probably the case, but generally, when hubby and I go on snorkeling excursions, we take as little as possible. We have purchased "dry boxes" -- little plastic waterproof cases that have a cord so you can wear them around your neck. You can put your wallet in some of the larger ones, or the smaller ones will hold credit card/ID as well as cash and Sign and Sail cards. That way, the most anyone can abscond with are your towels and any clothing you've left under a palapa! (or maybe your camera if you haven't brought an underwater camera)

We've never had a problem with anything being stolen.....I don't know if we're just lucky or if that is the norm.

sorry! double post!

I think it's the norm;
I have never lost anything on an excursion and I've never heard of anyone I've traveled with losing anything.
