My wife and I are going on our 2nd cruise aboard the Mariner of the Seas. We're going to Ochio Rios, Grand Cayman,and Cozumel. We're not much on group tours, we like to go on our own. Any suggestions, neat places, excellent places to eat, anyone has been to,stuff like that. Are the Hard Rock Cafes' close buy or do we need transportation.
Thanks

The hard Rock cafes in GC and Cozumel are very close. In GC, it is about a two block walk south from the tender dock you can't miss it. In Cozumel if you dock at the Punta Longosta pier, its in the shopping area across from the pier enterance. I'm not sure where the Mariner docks in Cozumel (our Mariner cruise was eastern Caribbean) So you may need to take a taxi ride to get to it. I'm sure someone else can let you know.

I'm not going to recommend anything for an on your own in Jamacia since I have never done it on our own. But everything in GC can be done on your own but be prepared for being in a large group if you want to do the normal tourist stuff since the ships excursions go to those places also. But 7 mile beach is easy to do on your own if you just want to hang out on the beach. You can find many bar/grills that will serve you on the beach while you relaxe.

You can easily do Cozumel on your own too, but you'll need to provide more details as to the type of things you want to do before we can help.

I don't know about Ochio Rios, but Cozumel has a mile or so of shops and then more behind the ones on the main drag....You can't hit them all in one day.....also in Cozumel, if you are into Mayan Ruins...Tulume is a wonderful place to spend the afternoon...Happy Cruising....

In Cozumel, there is a great minature golf place 3 blocks from the waterfront. We were sort of burnt out on the 'group' things, and I had found this on the internet. It was beautiful, relaxing, great fun, and quiet. They don't advertise on the 'cruise' places, so they get people there just by word of mouth. The owner, Scott, will recommend places to eat also. We had a wonderful lunch just down the street. If you google Cozumel mini golf, you can find the exact directions. I wish we were headed that direction, but we're off to the Eastern Caribbean in December and I'm sure we will find something to do!
