The western Caribbean consists of the Grand Cayman Islands, Belize City, and Cozumel, to name the most popular tourist destinations. Many of these areas are visited by cruise ships who stop to port for day trips. If you are lucky enough to be able to take in the sights of all three, you certainly are in for a real treat. The western Caribbean is stunning, with sandy white beaches, crystal clear waters, and a myriad of underwater sealife that is worth checking out.

If you hit Grand Cayman Island, you must visit Seven Mile Beach, the Butterfly Farm, and Stingray City. Scuba diving or snorkeling is a must if you are vacationing on Grand Cayman or your cruise ship ports for the day here. The ocean life is simply spectacular, and divers will likely come across stingrays, octopus, sharks, barracuda, sea turtles, and a plethora of colorful tropical fish. Further adding to your ocean excursion is that fact that the water temperatures are warm and the visibility excellent, sometimes as far as 150 feet in all directions.

If your travels take you to Cozumel, Mexico, you will have to take a glass bottom boat ride and check out the ocean waters, which are teeming with the most amazing sea life in the world. You might also want to get wet and go snorkeling or scuba diving in Cozumel as well, as there is nothing better than getting up close and personal with the sea creatures native to the area. Who knows? You may come across sea snakes, sharks, dolphin, barracuda, moray eels, stingrays, and numerous species of tropical fish.

Whether your travels take you to Belize City or Cozumel, you will surely enjoy every moment of your vacation in this sunny part of the world. The western Caribbean is renowned for its natural beauty, balmy climate, and abundance of sea life.
