Port and Shore Excursions
For the second time in 2 years, we booked a cave-tubing, zipline tour with Nacho and Cynthia, a local couple who provide an excellent experience. I learned of NCQAdventures from Cruise Critic. I found them on Google and communicated via email beforehand. He picked us up at the pier terminal and gave us an interesting ride to the Jaguar Paw resort. The zipline is really fun and Ronnie and the others staffing are very patient and competent. We then floated through 2 caves with a guide and ended with a wonderful lunch in the resort, which is a true jungle retreat. Afterward, we got a personal tour around the grounds. I've done this exact same tour twice and highly recommend Nacho and Cynthia and this tour!
We were anxious to see Costa Maya rebuilt and it looks very similar to it's previous form. We did a catamaran, snorkel tour on the Mayan Wind, booked as a ship's excursion. We had actually taken this same boat from another ship 4-5 years ago and it was the same crew. The crew and the equipment were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed it again.
We found our favorite Cuban restaurant for lunch - El Sibone, and just did some shopping. We've visited Key West several times and always enjoy it.
