Port Canaveral
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

-If you don't rent a car you're pretty much only stuck to coco beach. We rented a car ~$50 (budget rental co) the have a shuttle that takes you from the cruise terminal to budget rental building. From there we went to Downtown Disney (orlando) and spent maybe 4 hours there exploring. Lots of fun stuff with a free ferry that takes you around.

-Then we pickup up some Mediterranean from Sinnbads (SO GOOD) and had a picnic on coco beach until we had to go back. Having a car was great and gave lots of freedom.

- This place is INTENSE. Lots going on right off the bat. Make your way to the McDonalds and take the number 10 bus. Its a public transport bus but its only cost $1.25. It'll take you to cable beach where you can get a day pass with a resort ($30). We went with Melia and the grounds were BEAUTIFUL. We had access to Melias snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boat, etc.

-Also don't get drinks at the bar. You'll see a red umbrella far far down the beach. Ask for (Joey) He a local selling drinks out of coconuts and they are STRONG.

-We then took the 10 to the Fish Fry and went the restaurant that had an upstairs outside balcony. We ordered the conch fritters (tasty but filling) and the conch salad which was AMAZING. So so so good.

-Probably my favorite. We were gonna do the Pat & Diane excursion but it got canceled. We ended up taking a cab in Lucaya marketplace and shopped at the stalls. Everyone here was so friendly. We then went to the Grand Lucayan Resort and snuck into the their beach and enjoyed the sun for an hour or two.

- Find the Fresh Fruit Stand where you can watch the lady machete up a coconut where you can drink the water then shell make you a fresh fruit smoothie of your choice and fill it back up all for $8

- Never pay full price you can drop the price down almost as much as 50%

- If you want bead work and jewelry you can ask around because some shops make it by hand and some shops but its from who knows
