    Tours Plaza?

    This is the second time I have used Tours Plaza and Gerry! We took this tour in February 2018 and out of ten of us only two of us had been on a previous tour with Gerry. They loved the tour. Gerry was prompt. We told him what we would like to see and also if he suggested anything. We went to the chocolate factory, learned about the difference in tequila and sampled and then to the Mayan Ruins. He was fun and informative. He ended the tour with singing a song to us. He has an absolute beautiful voice and the song was beautiful. It was such a nice touch to a perfect tour. Gerry was mindful of ship times. Really folks, if you want a great tour at a great price then I would use Tours Plaza when in Cozumel.

    What are the best Grand Cayman excursions?

    I read a review here and booked. I am so happy I did...it was wonderful and very economical. We got a bus ride to the boat which was fun. The driver was informative and witty. We then boarded the ship and were Capt Mark and his two mates took us out to an area we could snorkle. I didn't totally get the hang of it but its not because they didn't try. With their assistance I was able to finally do it. My daughter took right off and had a fabulous snorkling experience. Then onto the stingrays. What a wonderful experience. All three got in the water with us and introduced us to these creatures. They had a fondness of each and everyone. It was wonderful. I held one, got a good luck kiss and fed one. It was amazing. My aunt doesn't like water so she chose to stay on the boat but they made a point of bringing one close for her to see. This was a chance of a lifetime and all six of us felt very fortunate that we had chose Moby Dick to share it with.

    Belize City and Honduras any input please....

    We just returned from our cruise on the Carnival Liberty. First off...loved the ship and everywhere we went. We booked a private tour through Victor Bodden. It was inexpensive..$25 a piece and we had him for over three hours. I liked that he asked us what interested us and then made sure that we saw and did everything we wanted. We toured the whole island and stopped at the butterfly farm. Now there weren't hardly any butterflies but that was okay...the rest of the place was great. We interacted with the monkeys...Ho Ho and Louie. I held a baby monkey and we were given a tour of the rest of the animals. Wonderful! You cannot beat this tour, if you wanted to go to the beach or the zipline, he would have taken us there. Now when it comes to Belize, you cannot beat cavetubing.bz with Vitalino Reyes. This was my second experience with cavetubing.bz and both times were extraordinary. For $50, they pick you up at the ship, take you on about a 30-45 min drive. They give you info about their country and are very pleasant. You then are given a helmet and a tube and start on a walk through the jungle. Its not strenuous. We stopped often and they talked about plant life and the jungle. Wonderful. We arrived at the river where they helped you in and then guided you through the caverns. It was remarkable. We arrived back and then were fed a meal by Vitalino's family. The food was great and so was the rum punch which there was an abundance of if you chose to partake. This second trip we added the zipline to it for an additional $25. So for $75, we got zipline, cavetubing, and a meal. Very reasonable. I might add had we booked through the ship, the cavetubing would have been $98 and that wouldn't have included the meal and punch. Its also a shorter version of what Vitalino gives you. A must!!! :D
