Sightseeing & Activities

Leisure Walk from the Cozumel Cruise Terminal Carnival (Quintana Roo, Mexico)

November 30, 2018 |

Now aboard the Carnival Miracle, we visit Cozumel… yet again. This port is very, very popular. How do I know? This would be my 6th visit to this port from our past Carnival and Royal Caribbean cruises. With so many visits behind us, this time around we check out a local department store while taking a leisurely walk off the main road (Av. Rafael E. Melgar)… enjoying the sights. Read More

Belize Cave Tubing and Zipline Tour (Port of Belize City)

November 29, 2018 |

Our 3rd visit to Belize. Our choice of port excursions were to visit the Mayan Ruins of Altun Ha (back in Mar.13, 2014) and to Snorkel with Nurse Sharks and Rays (more recently Oct. 4, 2018). This time around, our party of 4 go cave tubing at Nohoch Che’en – a national park throughout which the Caves Branch River runs with the added bonus of a zipline adventure. We will be tubing an area carved out of the limestone foothills of the Maya Mountains and where the river exits an underground cavern. Let’s go! Read More

November 28, 2018 | 1

Need ideas for a fun ocean adventure while in Roatan? Try snorkeling near Fantasy Island and the French Cay… the CoCo View Wall. Honduras is part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System – the second largest coral reef system in the world. It stretches from Belize, to Cancun through the Riviera Maya and up to Honduras.

A Caribbean Experience: Feeding Wild Iguanas (Roatan, Honduras)

November 28, 2018 | 3

On our 3rd visit to Roatan, we were with family and wanted to introduce them to some local wildlife. We arrive by Carnival cruise, and the tour operator picked us up from the port. Arch’s Iguana Park was only one stop in-between a bit of sightseeing and snorkeling. We were all looking forward to learning more and feeding the wild iguanas. Enjoy the video. Read More

Amazing Animal Encounter with a Wild Three-Toed Sloth (Roatan, Honduras)

November 28, 2018 |

Sloths remind me of dolphins with their Mona-lisa smile. Whenever we return to Roatan, we always make a visit to see the sloths. Our first adventure to hold a sloth was back in 2014 travels… specifically, during a Carnival Conquest cruise. Check out our video summary of the experience while learning a few facts we gained during the tour. Read More

Cruise Vacation Port Excursion: Jet Ski Tour in Grand Cayman

November 27, 2018 |

We arranged this port excursion outside of Carnival Miracle (as we did a past excursion when on Carnival Conquest). Typically, the cruise arranges tours to Stingray City but in massive boat loads. It’s not our idea of enjoyment brushing shoulder to shoulder with a crowd to get a glimpse of wildlife. We read a lot of great TripAdvisor reviews (4.5 out of 5 stars based on 114 reviews) about Action Water Sports. It’s actually our 2nd time using this company as we had just been here just last month. We reserved 2 jet skis as single riders (Total: $220) through Grand Cayman Cruise Excursions (Island Marketing Ltd). Read More
