UNCOVER HIDDEN TREASURES

WESTERN CARIBBEAN CRUISES

Dive under the sea, fly above the ocean, and treasure-hunt through the jungle.


Journey to the Western Caribbean and find yourself immersed in bygone eras and pristine natural scenery. Hike through Mayan ruins in Tulum, Mexico, before diving into deep blue cenotes — aquamarine sinkholes surrounded by limestone caves, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Cruise to the Western Caribbean and sail to Stingray City in Grand Cayman, and swim with these gentle creatures. When you're ready to come up for air, take flight on a massive zip line over Labadee's shimmering coastlines in Haiti. Or soak up some sun and see the pastel-hued, conch-style houses in Key West.

Fort San Felipe and Bacalar Lagoon in Mexico
Fun at the Fort
Puerto Costa Maya in Mexico is home to Mayan art and architecture (as its name implies), but you can also find the Spanish fort Fuerte San Felipe Bacalar.

History in Havana

Then, take in the colorful buildings and the sound of salsa music filling the air in the hip Centro Habana neighborhood.

Seven Miles in Heaven
Stroll down one of the world's best beaches for a healthy dose of sunshine and salt.

Grab a rum punch or a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants and bars along the way.

Zip Line in Labadee, Haiti
Get Roller Coasting

WHAT TO KNOW
BEFORE YOU GO
The Best Of Land and Sea

The weather in the Caribbean is sunny and warm year-round. Choose your preferred season to sink into white sand beaches on Grand Cayman or relax in your own private cabana on Labadee. Wash down some chips and guacamole with a refreshing michelada in Mexico, or hang out with monkeys and iguanas at Gumbalimba Park in Roatan, Honduras.

If you want slightly cooler temperatures and lower humidity for a more comfortable time adventuring outdoors, December to April is the perfect season to lace up your hiking boots and wander through the lush jungles of Puerto Costa Maya and discover the Kohunlich ruins. Or spend your day in the Yucatan or Cozumel exploring Mayan ruins that are still standing after thousands of years.

Insider Tips

1 Drone hobbyists should leave their drones at home when visiting to Chichen Itza or Tulum. Flights are forbidden in these areas because of their historical significance.
 
2 Thousands of people visit the ruins in Mexico each day, so make sure to follow the rules of your guides. Doing this will ensure that other people can enjoy them in the future.
 
3 Book your excursions and things to do in advance so you know what to expect once you arrive at a port.
 
 

LOCAL CUISINE
A Fiesta of Freshness 

The Western Caribbean offers the perfect mix of spicy dishes and refreshing drinks. Have your fill of fresh seafood and zesty tacos, then relax with the tropical cocktail of your choice.

Mexican Conchinita Pibil Taco with Lime and Pico de Gallo
Spice Up Your Life
Do yourself a favor and order the Cochinita Pibil tacos when you're in Mexico. The slow-roasted pork will melt in your mouth and your taste buds will come alive with the heavy seasoning of spicy achiote paste and bright citrus. Wash it all down with a michelada, a refreshing drink made with beer and freshly squeezed lime juice served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass.

Bahamian Conch Salad and Fruit Punch
Conch You Taste It?
Conch — a meaty sea mollusk with a large shell — isn't an ingredient you come by much in other parts of the world, but it's an integral part of Western Caribbean cuisine. Crunchy conch fritters are one of the region's most-loved staples. Or try it served raw, finely diced and marinated in citrus juice in Caribbean conch salad.

Caribbean Conch Crab and Shrimp Patties with Mango Chutney
What's Stewing?
Slow-cooked meats have a storied history in Central and South America, and stew chicken is arguably Belize's greatest contribution to the tradition. Typically served over rice and beans, stew chicken is coated in spicy, bright-red achiote paste and simmered with onions in liquid — often stock or coconut milk — until it's falling-off-the-bone tender.

RELATED PORTS

Grand Cayman offers incredibly clear waters, perfect for spotting sea turtles and stingrays during a swim or snorkel. Hike through jungles in Mexico for an experience that combines stunning scenery with historical treasures. Or snorkel the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef off the coast of Belize City or Roatan, Honduras.
