We did the Bob Marley tour in Ocho Rios. We had a blast.

In Cozumel, it's very easy to go past the main shopping area to the taxi stand. You can ask for an island tour, or ask them to drop you in town. Last time, we asked the driver to show us the areas of the island that he thought were the best. The "back" side of the island is breathtaking--little development and some beautiful scenery. The beaches on that side aren't good for swimming, though.

In Grand Cayman, we did the turtle farm and Hell. That was fun as well.

Ocho Rios. I remember walking up the riverbed with a tour. You don't really need the tour to walk up a river - just dress appropriately with shoes or sandals that can take a soaking (you never know what you might wind up stepping on). I originally thought the name had something to do with "eight rivers" - turns out it's a spanishfication of a local indigenous idiom. Gorgeous.

In Cozumel we general just go shopping or to the beach or both. In Grand Cayman we take a tour of the island. In Ochos Rios we go to the beach. We have been to these islands so many times that there is rarely anything new to check out.

In Cozumel we did a beach/shopping excursion, the beach part was good, food prices high. The shopping part was LOTS of walking and our guide took strides that could have given Ulson Bolt a run for his money. This time, I think we are going to Mr. Sanchos, but have not fully decided, might just shop around the port.

In Ochos Rios, last time we took the 10 Best of Ochos Rios, very informative and learned many things about Jamaica, this time shopping round the port.

Caymans, last time we did the Amphibious Bus, loved it! this time we are going to a beach and let the guys snorkel.

Hope you have a great time!
