Once again, Carnival exceeded all of my expectations as we set sail for our second cruise in the Caribbean! This year we went to Grand Cayman Islands, Honduras, Belize, and Mexico!
Grand Caymans: We booked an excursion to go swim with the sting rays at StingRay City with a company called Aquarius, our tour guide being Mario. They did a great job of telling us all about the sting rays, letting us interact with them and making sure they were being kept safe as we took pictures. The sting rays were like giant puppies! We also got to snorkel at a reef site and they served us Rum punch on the way back to the port! For sure go with this company if you ever find yourself in the beautiful Grand Caymans! Honduras: best excursion ever, swimming with dolphins! It was so incredible I made a separate post just for it that you can read HERE.
Belize: Cave tubing with Butts Up! I’ll admit, from our port to the cave it was an hour drive plus a 30 minute hike. However, once we were there it was totally worth it! The tour guides actually carried our tubes the whole way and guided our group with ease through the National Park of Belize. In the caves there were bats flying around, monkeys hanging out in trees, and the coolest plants/fruits growing wildly in the jungle. This was definitely different from our usual tropical excursions but well worth it exploring inland Belize! Cozumel: The last port on our cruise was Mexico and I thought we would take it easy with a beach day at Paradise Beach. It was a 8$ taxi from the port to the beach, and drinks and food were reasonably priced. I would for sure go back the next time we’re in Mexico!
