Cozumel
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

On our own, we went to Mr. Sancho's and did the pay as you go option. The kids loved the waterpark area (note that these were all teenagers, and they still had a blast). Good snorkeling, really good food (especially the guacamole). A few people got a temporary tatoo for $25/each. The restrooms/shower/changing was very clean. Service was very attentive. The cab ride there is a little pricier than one would expect. $32 roundrip.

Great 2 tank dive at Anthony's Key Resort. Great service, even if it was a little rushed. Price was in line with all of the other independent bookings I looked in to, and I knew AKR would do a good job so I just went with them. The other members of our group went off to Mahogany Beach and weren't terribly impressed.

Canopy Zipline Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

cave-tubing.com was VERY well run, great service at almost half the price of the Carnival excursion. It was a very long day, though, and people should really keep that in mind. It was hard work for some members of our group. Had a shot of cashew wine before the excursion and a nice tamale dinner after, all for $70. The ziplining was great. Tubing was a little anticlimactic. Very crowed in spots, but but it thinned out.

To everyone in our 8-person group's surprise, we all loved this port. Half of the group went to Mahahual for shopping, meandering. The other half went to the beach and got some great snorkeling in. The village was great, very friendly. The vendors were definitely out in force, but "no thanks" was all it took. Great silversmith shop, bars, etc. But Carnival needs to rethink this port for this itinerary. A shore stop between 7-2 just doesn't make any sense. Especially after the stop in Belize, where many people do some relatively high-energy activities and end up wanting to sleep in a little later the next day. Still, a great stop.
