Has anyone toured the Turtle Farm on their own? I see a lot of excursions that visit the Turtle Farm along with other things but has anyone just gone there?
Hello - we are on the same double dip cruise! Yes we have toured the turtle farm on our own. In 2006 we got off the ship (me, 2 kids and a friend and her 2 kids). We walked to where all the taxis are (tons of them) and asked for a tour with hell, the rum cake factory, the turtle farm and a beach stop. We negotiated a price we liked (can't even remember what now but very good price) and were taken on a private tour. At the end he dropped us at the beach and came back for us at the time we specified. If he had not come back we would have been fine anyway - there are taxis everywhere. We enjoyed our private tour and would definitely recommend this. No probs at all. This time we will probably stay on the ship. We have already been to Grand Cayman twice. We are bummed about Costa Maya not being ready....
We used credit cards last Oct. with no problem at the gate and the gift shop too where we bought a small turtle our son promptly named "Summer" (it was over 90 degrees that day!). I'm certain you can use them for lunch too.Do any of you happen to know if you can use a credit card to pay for the admission charge at the gate and to buy lunch or do we need to bring cash for this?
