Traveling with 4 year old. Excursions?

Recommended Posts

Looking for ideas for excursions in Cozumel,  Grand Cayman,  Belize, and Mahogany Bay for us and our 3 kids (11,7,4). Any thoughts?

I do hope you get some good responses. I’ll be taking my four year old on his first cruise on a similar iteneray this May. He is adventurous and desperately needs to get his energy out!

In mahogany bay we did the monkeys and beach day with my nephew and he loved it. 

 

Cozumel we did playa Mia with the slides and such and he had a blast.

We were on the Miracle 2 weeks ago with this route.  Weather got in the way, but our plans were Playa Mia in Cozumel, Turtle Farm in Grand Cayman, we just went to the beach in Mahogany Bay, and Belize was a nothing day.  My kids are 3 & 5.  If your 4 year old is up to it, cave tubing in Belize is awesome.  We are taking a similar route on the Allure over Spring Break and are using Victor Bodden in Roatan since RCCL doesn't have a private area like Carnival does.

We started cruising with our kids when our youngest was 3, which meant a lot of beaches. Both kids really enjoyed the Turtle Farm in Grand Cayman and Isla de Passion in Cozumel. We are on the same itinerary in March, and now that our kids are both over 6 we can expand our excursions slightly, which means the submarine in Cozumel (our youngest is a huge shark fan so fingers crossed) and Sting Ray City in Grand Cayman. Mahogany Bay we're taking a beach day at Mahogany Beach and we're thinking we will take advantage of a quiet ship in Belize and stay on board and enjoy the public spaces, like the pool and water slides without the sea day crowd.

When you go to Roatan (Mahogany Bay) book an excursion that includes the monkey sanctuary there and a beach day. Although I was there on a NCL ship, and we docked at Coxen Hole, not Mahogany Bay, there was a monkey park excursion combined with a beach day at Tabayana Beach. Very nice.
