Once a hideout for pirates, today Grand Cayman is world-renowned for its clear waters and coral reefs. The water is so incredibly clear and teeming with tropical fish, sponges and coral so vivid it will take your breath away. Snorkel the surface, swim with gentle stingrays, take a submarine ride to the depths, or see all from a glass bottom boat. Seven Mile Beach is considered one of the Caribbean's most beautiful shorelines with talcum-soft sand. In Georgetown, shop for black coral jewelry or try a taste of West Indian yam cake. There's also a turtle farm to visit and a delightfull dolphin encounter. Available Shore Excursions.
The Mayans called Cozumel "Island of Swallows". Mexico's only island, Cozumel is home to quiet, soft-sand beaches, warm-hearted locals and open-air markets featuring native handicrafts and silver artifacts. Indulge in authentic Mexican dishes, some dating back thousands of years. In addition to one-of-a-kind galleries and boutiques, you'll find some of the world's most incredible diving at an underwater mountain range called Palancar Reef. On land, are the Mayan ruins of San Gervasio, and the impressive Tulum. Take your pick or spend your time exploring Cozumel by semi-submarine, fiesta boat, or fins and snorkel. Available Shore Excursions.
