Where do you buy your excursions for Progreso, Yucatan and Cozumel?

I have heard varying comments on buying excursions. Some people tell me they always buy them from the cruiseline (in my case, Carnival). Others say I should buy them from places (but they can't give me websites). Still others say to wait until I get in port and buy them then because they will be cheaper. Can someone please tell me what is best???

We have done the excursions sold on the ship and at our destination. There is a huge mark up with the cruise lines packages's not always safe with the locals. Try this site to check out some excursions.
Compare the prices and good luck!

Here is another good site that was recommended to me:

They also guarantee to get you back on the ship on time.

Regarding buying in port, that works for some excursions. But, for other excursions that are in high demand, definitely book them in advance as they might sell out.

thank you for the link. so far everything I have checked out is more expensive than booking through Carnival. I'm going to give it a couple more weeks and if I can't find anything cheaper elsewhere I'll go through them. I appreciate all suggestions, though!!!
