Overall it was excellent! We did the ruins of tulum with lunch, in Cozumel which was amaIng. We where a little rushed throughout the whole ordeal which was a bummer and we also didn't have enough time to shop or do anything other than the excursion . We also did the stingray city and turtle farm in the Cayman Islands which all the kids loved. Make sure you bring snacks because the excursion does not offer any type of food and it lasts all day. The turtle farm is neat for little kids , however my 13 year old wasn't too impressed and we couldn't get lunch and it took forever just to get a drink. Jamaica was my least favorite. As soon as you get off the boat you are being hounded by locals to get a cab or buy something and even after you say "no" they still follow you. We ended up at margaritaville and that's where we stayed until it was time to get back on the boat. Overall it was amazing time and I would still do it all over again .
