We did our own thing in Cozumel, and selected La Choza restaurant for its good reviews, and La Choza greatly exceeded our expectations with delicious fried Red Snapper, Margaritas, and desserts. We had both the flan and the avocado pie, both of which we had read about, and greatly anticipated. Our host was third generation owner, and the restaurant was a true adventure in regional Mexican food.

We bought silver necklace from Sergios jewelers - very authentic and honest - and came highly recommended from La Choza owner.

We did River Wallace in Belize. Our guide, Ken, was a storehouse of knowledge. We ate a Belize wedding feast at the small village at the end of the 20 mile boat trip - the other guides and boat pilots were wonderful. Ken was a history major at the Belize college, and attended archeological symposiums, plus he grew up in this village on the river, so he was a storehouse of ecological and historical information. The bus that took us to the Altun Ha Mayan site was AAA rated -- modern and cool. We should have bought the local bottled water (iced cold) for a dollar, at the site -- it was hot.

Costa Maya was another port where you could catch a cab and get to the beach, enjoy a shaded lounge chair on the beach, eat Ceviche at Nohoch Kay restaurant (where the ship's officers all come to dine), and get excellent strawberry daiquiris.

Roatan (Mahogany Bay) was a great port where we struck out by local bus to Club Natale, where we enjoyed a pristine beach, snorkeling, kayaking in the mangroves, all for five U.S. dollars. The club trains Hondurans to work in the cruise and hospitality industries, so the people are really trying to please. We were treated like kings. The small restaurant and bar was great for a burger lunch, but the pool was exquisite and refreshing, swimming in cool water high on a hill overlooking the verdant beach - absolutely stunning. Only six people were on the beach, and a family was enjoying the beach, so it was quite a respite from the crowded beach where the ship docked.
