Costa Maya
Beach Break Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Nohoch Kay beach break: Super relaxing, beautiful beach away from the masses of people piled up at many of the other beach breaks down the road from us. It was a private, clean beach with super great food all included. The owner, Jaime, and his staff went out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. They kept the snacks and drinks coming all day, and everything was included in the price, with the exception of the massages available on the beach which my hubby took advantage of and thought he'd died and gone to heaven! We highly recommend Nohoch Kay Beach club.

Belize: Cave Tubing with - Terrific excursion! Gerson, our guide was so knowledgeable and entertaining. He really took good care of us and had nice equipment to use and very comfortable tubes. The caves were amazing and beautiful and it was really fun to float inside the caves. The caves were busy with tourists, but our guide really went out of his way to make sure we got the best tour possible and make it a terrific experience,. Lunch was included and was very nice as well. Had a ton of fun, but we did hike nearly 40 minutes carrying tubes, so good water shoes are a must!

Roatan: Upachaya Resort snokeling tour- Beautiful, Private resort w/ PADI certified Dive Master, 10 people in our group and really great snorkeling. We went to a beautiful little reef, and also a drop off, but because of water conditions could not see anything at the drop off. Our guide found some great areas filled with star fish and we were able to handle them and he took photos of us with them.He was very knowledgeable about the area and was able to point out where octopus lived and was great at spotting exotic fish like Lion and Scorpion fish to photograph. He was also very calm & patient with some first time snorkelers in our group. We had a great lunch provided provided back at the resort and got back in time to do a little shopping in port. I'm rating our experience a 4 only because we were unable to do the drop off snorkeling and there was not another reef option to do in it's place.

Cozumel: Shore Off road adventure. This was the most expensive excursion we booked and the most commercial. They were very efficient and took good care of us and we had a lot of fun off roading on the beach and looking at the very small Mayan ruin they took us to. The buggy's ran a little ( a lot!)rough even on paved roads as they had seen a lot of action, but it was all part of the experience. Lunch was also included and was also very good at the El Cid resort where we were allowed to swim and hang out for free after our excursion was done. Unexpectedly they threw in a tour of one of the local tequila factories for free which added on another 40 minutes to the tour we did not really want. You were stuck going to the factory whether you wanted to or not. For some on our group that was a plus, but for us it was a waste of time, and we were hungry, and wanted to get back to the hotel for lunch, so because of that I'm rating this excursion a 4.
