Take your time and think of other options. Read reviews from recents cruisers. Make sure to look at negative reviews with details in cleanliness. If you have any issues, address them with a manager on bird and not a supervisor. Managers wear black uniforms. They are a better help than just supervisors. If department managers can’t help then ask to speak to the general Manager, his name is Igor
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
We did the Mayan Temples at Chachoben, I think that’s how you spell it. Anyways, it was a total of 4 hours. 1 hour in each direction on a tour bus and 2 hours there. Make sure you wear sun tan lotion or spray and bug spray. Watch out for Mexican Black ants ( they bite and will put you in a hospital because they swarm). And red ants are bad too.
When we arrived back in Costa Maya port, we cruised the shops. Beware of everyone trying to reel you in to sell you tequila and silver. Do research on silver. And on gold. Lots of the gold is rhodium plated and you don’t want that.
Wait for Cozumel to buy tequila.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Beautiful port of call. Went on a he Celebrity Century out of Port Everglades in 1998. At that time as soon as you got off the ship the women around the ship would try and sell everyone dreadlocks (didn't matter if you were a man or woman). The beaches were amazing, Dunns River Falls was so much fun. We decided to get an all day cab driver (cost us like $50), his name was Vince I think. He drove a Lada 2103/2015. He took us all over. A friend of my moms bought some super potent liquor called Devils Soup (was like 180-190 proof), highly recommended to make your anal passages bleed. You will have more fun eating sugarless gummy bears from amazon.
George Town, Grand Cayman
I have been to Georgetown Grand Cayman 4 times with cruise ships. We have done Stingray snorkeling 1 time (yeh it was fun), but I think of Grand Cayman as a shopper's and bankers paradise. There is a lot of banks here and if you want high interest rates, you will find them here
Anything duty free should be purchased at Dufry right at the port. Beyond that, leave Cozumels port gates and wander the streets and do some shopping. Yes you can go to a pharmacy and stock up. It’s not illegal, no you don’t need a prescription for what they sell.
Don’t buy silver unless it’s stamped and they can prove it. Tequila shouldn’t cost anymore than $ 10-25 a bottle.
Don’t buy vanilla unless it comes in a glass bottle and has an ingredient label on the back. Vanilla in plastic bottle is made for making drinks and isn’t organic. It contains things you don’t want in your body.
If your looking for a good place to eat, look for a place called Machetes. We got 12 assorted tacos, like real authentic Mexican tacos and shrimp ceviche 1 beer and 1 soda for $44.
