I just watched some sting ray city videos on YouTube.. Looks cool but, it also look crowded with a bunch of different tour guides? It also looks like the stingrays don't want to be held... I hope none of them get hurt or injured from this attraction?

We were on the Fantasy for Halloween 2012. Our very favorite stop was Maya Chan in Costa Maya. The price was awesome & truly all inclusive. It included unlimited food & drink, sand toys for the kids, kayaking & snorkeling, private little areas for each family, they had a sand castle building contest. They had umbrellas & little float seats in the water for relaxing. The service was awesome & the people could speak good English. The price also included our taxi fare. It was an amazing deal & I hope that we can return in the future. We didn't want to leave.

I would say that if you don't want to be harassed, don't stop in or near any of the stores in port at Costa Maya. The shop owners were annoying! So if you go to Maya Chan, just head right for the Taxi stand where they will have your name on the list to take you to the Beach Resort. For more info: http://costamayabeachresort.com/

In Grand Cayman we did the stingray tour and it was totally awesome. Make sure to get the one that goes to the sand bar. You get to touch and hold the string rays

Great thread! We're doing the Western Carribean on Fantasy next October. We've pretty much settled on the Chacchoben Mayan Ruins in Costa Maya and The Secret River and Playa Del Carmen in Cozumel.

Still trying to choose a Grand Cayman port excursion. We're leaning toward the Catamaran, Reef and Kittiwake Snorkel Sail but a number of others look fun.

Do any of the beaches in GC have those things?

Thanks
We spent 3 weeks over Christmas in grand cayman and love it there. Yes the public beach by calico jacks has the water trampolines, inflatable slides and climbing wall, teeter totter etc. You have to buy wristbands to use them.

If you want to tour ruins with your kids, who are relatively young, I'd go to the ruins that are ON Cozumel. You can easily just grab a taxi to take you when you get off the ship, and they'll wait for you while you tour. They're a really good representation of the ruins, but easy to get to and easy to tour, with time left to explore town, or go back to the ship while it's quiet and swim. Take bug spray!

I think going to Tulum is too far, and don't like the idea of the small ferry to get to the mainland. Going while in Costa Maya is quite a trek, too.

Forgot to say, the name of the ruins we went to on Cozumel were the San Gervasio ruins. Check Google or Bing for more info and pictures.
