How about an ATV/Beach excursion on Cancun, has anyone done that? Thoughts? I'm slightly concerned about the safety of being "off the beaten path" in Mexico. Is that just being silly? I've never been to Cancun.

I went on the dune buggies in costa maya and it was ok we all drove in a line to get to the beach plus our tour guides were very nice and helpful I would think cancun is close enought to there that u would be fine.

Any reviews of the new pool at the playa Mia beach park? Wondering if it is worth it?

We are looking for excursion reviews especially in Costa Maya & Cozumel.

I've already learned a lot from this thread. Hope people keep posting here!

I'm also wondering if anyone has booked Segway tours in either Costa Maya or Cozumel on their own, and if so, was there an age restriction at the older end of the age bracket? The Disney site has a cut off age of 65, so DH, who is perfectly capable of riding a Segway and has done so many times, would not be able to book this through Disney if they enforce the age policy.

I am curious about the restrictions also. The Jeep excursion lists diabetes, hard of hearing, back, heart, etc. etc. - just curious if they are being overly cautious.

What company did you use to book the Jet Ski's? How long did you actually get to ride? And what was the price? Thanks in advance.

Our family just did this excursion earlier in the week. They have a large pool. The water was nice and it wasn't crowded at all. They have a water play area for smaller kids and some large water slides for the bigger kids.

On the beach they have multiple rows of beach chairs lined up. The stretch of beach is rather small though. There are two water trampolines and an inflatable climbing wall with a slide that are out a little ways in the water. You need to wear a life vest to swim out there. We took three teens and they said it was a long swim out there. They liked it though.

You can also use their paddle boats and kayaks. They had a pinata for the kids and a water balloon toss. The food is not that great, so don't go thinking there is an awesome buffet lunch. The drinks are free. My husband had two pina coladas and said they were good. We brought some one dollar bills to tip since they will bring the drinks to you.

There is also a row of hammocks to use. All in all, it was a nice day. I think it was much better than just going to the beach, but not nearly as good as something like an Atlantis excursion in the Bahamas. It looked like the kids were having a nice time.

Anyone???

We had wanted to do "Island Tour with Stingrays", but that's not showing up as an option for our cruise. So now we are looking at Boatswain. It's $92 through DCL and $45 direct (and then a 20% discount). Why the huge price difference? How easy is it to do on your own?

Thanks!
