Horseback Riding in the ocean

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction

Quote:
I went on this excursion alone, since the rest of my family went to the waterfalls. When the boat docked in Ocho Rios, we all met up and got on a bus tht took us to the horse ranch. We talked a little about how the excursion would be and soon we were fitted for our horses. We walked along in a line with our horses along the Jamaican "countryside," which was very beautiful. It was the perfect distance from the beach, our ultimate destination, because by the time we got there, we were hot and ready for a dip in the ocean. Next, we got to the ocean, where we would be riding the horses on the shore and actually in the water, and de-horsed and changed, if we needed to, into swimwear while the horses go...Read More

Labadee Beach

Attraction

Quote:
Our first port was Labadee, Haiti and it was the most raw and exotic island I've ever been on to this day.

There was beach volleyball set up on the island by Royal Caribbean and a Hait...Read More

Nachi Cocom Beach

Attraction

Quote:
When we reached Cozumel, Mexico, our last port, we were ready to just plop down on a beach and relax, but there wasn't anything conveniently there like on the last ports, so we hopped a cab and asked him to take us to a lovely beach! And that he did. He drove us down a road to "Nachi Cocom" beach, which is to this day one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. The sun was in and out that day, so it was cloudy, but still warm, and there was literally no one on the beach aside from one other couple. There was also a small authentic Mexican restaurant right off the beach where we had the best margaritas ever and nachos to pick on, and there was a little pool, but we didn't bother with that with...Read More
