Our first port of call was in Falmouth, Jamaica. We ended up not booking our excursions until the night before our first port because we couldn't make up our mind. We ended up doing the Irie Mon Beach Break, which took up to Cornwall Beach. It was so perfect. The bus ride was about 30 mins but it was a very scenic ride, we saw the track the Usan Bolt ran on, which wasn't much of a track but cool to see and the Hope House and other tourist attractions. Upon arrival the hostess had bottled water or Jamaican Rum for us to drink and they had chairs and umbrellas. We rented scuba masks for the kids and got in the water. There was an aqua trampoline and climbing wall, but it was further out then my kids were interested in going, but would be great for teens and adults. They served a great lunch with jerk chicken, pork, corn, hush puppies, and fruits. There were only a handful of vendors and they stayed at there booths and didn't bother you much at all. It was the least intrusive of the three ports as far as vendors go, but I am sure that is because it is a private beach. There was a security guard and two life guards. There was also a place to get massages on the beach, we didn't partake but several did. There were only about 40 people total on the beach so it wasn't crowded at all. The bathroom and washroom facilities were large and clean.

4X4 Jeep Adventure Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Our next stop was in Grand Cayman. We did the 4x4 Jeep Adventure tour/beach break. A bus took us to Tiki Beach where we picked up our Jeep. Our guides were informative, funny, and great with the group. The jeeps were clean and in great shape. The tour itself was okay, but we thought it would be more off road type riding. Instead it was a lot of sight seeing. We wend to the North Reef and it was beautiful to see and walk around a little there. We also stopped in Hell and at the Tortuga's Rum Factory. It was neat to drive through the neighborhoods and on the the wrong side of the road. After the driving tour we went back to Tiki Beach. Lunch was not included so we had lunch and the bar there, then rented more snorkel gear and went to the beach. There were chairs but no umbrellas. There were no vendors, and we spent a few hours in the water the kids loved looking for fish around the coral.

Our final stop was in Cozumel. We did not do an excursion instead, we took a cab to the forum shops had lunch at Pancho's Backyard, shopped a little and then headed back to the boat. Somehow this still took about 4 hours.
