Hey all! Looking for suggestions on the best places to snorkel in the Western Carribean. We will be on Carnival Legend in March going to Cozumel, Isla Rotan, Cayman and Belize. I have heard that you can snorkel at the Money Bar in Cozumel with out booking an excursion? Is the snorkeling there any good? Any suggestions would help...thanks.In order of preference: Roatan (it's world class), Coz (not far behind), Belize, Cayman.
I thought roatan from shore was spectacular. Have not snorkeled Belize but am planning to on my next cruise which has Belize on the itinerary. Grand cayman has good snorkeling from shore. And coz I prefer to do via boatAgree. First visit I took the ship's "tour" to Tabyana Beach. I was certain it couldn't be topped until last time when I snorkeled at Fantasea Resort. It was even better.
Stevesan - I thought I would send this message again since I sent it some time ago and you may have missed it.I, too, enjoyed Tabyana. Especially liked booking thru the ship because there was a shuttle bus round tripping every half hour.
We love Tabyana in Roatan for snorkeling. Why is Fantasy island better than Tabyana? We will be returning to Roatan in December. We always go back to Tabyana because it is so great, but since you have been to both, I would appreciate a comparison so that maybe you will convince me to try Fantasy rather than returning to Tabyana.
