Zip line was Awesome!! Guides were great also, best excursion!

Cozumel, Mexico Did not visit port

Disappointed we did not get to visit this port due to weather, we were going to do ATV to Jade cavern, heard it was a great excursion and was sorry to miss it.

Went pretty smoothly, paid extra for priority disembark and embark, saw no special lines or areas to go to for this, waste of money.
