Belize City, Belize

Belize’s entire Caribbean coast is hugged by its namesake barrier reef, the second-largest on the planet. In Belize City, you can hop a boat to tiny Caye Caulker for up-close encounters with stingrays and harmless nurse sharks. Grab a tube for a subterranean float through Belize’s vast cave systems. Zipline through the jungle canopy. Or visit the ancient Mayan centers of Xunantunich, Altun Ha, or Lamanai. Established in the 17th century as a British trading post for lumber, Belize City was an important source of mahogany and logwood. It became a British colony in 1862 and remained so until it gained independence in 1981. Many of the traditional colonial structures have survived, including the Government House and St. John’s Cathedral, as well as stately houses of the period. The north is where many of the cultural attractions are located, including the Museum of Belize and the Fort Street Tourism Village, a harborfront shopping and dining area catering to cruise-goers. Albert Street, on the south side, is considered the main downtown commercial area and is lined with stores, gift and souvenir shops, banks, and restaurants.

Cozumel, Mexico

Cozumel is a popular Caribbean destination that draws many scuba divers, snorkelers, and seekers of sand and sun who are attracted by the reliably sunny and tropical climate. The island and its environs also offer all other manner of on- and around-the-water attractions, many of which are quite unique, such as underwater sculpture gardens, a submarine excursion to see a shipwreck, and a sailboat-racing experience that’s second only to the America’s Cup. For visitors who are intrigued by Mexico’s Maya culture, there are several archaeological sites in and around Cozumel, including the UNESCO-inscribed Chichén Itzá and, on Cozumel itself, San Gervasio, once a site where women made offerings to the goddess of fertility and childbirth. Or book a ferry to the mainland and enjoy some time in the coastal resort town of Playa del Carmen. When you’re done sightseeing, there’s shopping for traditional Mexican crafts and wares, including jewelry and custom-made sandals.

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Tropical pleasures and underwater treasures await you in Grand Cayman! You can interact with huge rays at the Stingray City sandbar, sample fine rum and rum cake in the capital city of George Town, copter over famous Seven Mile Beach, ride a Segway alongside its stunning white sands, explore shipwrecks in a semi-submersible, or do a deep dive at the coral-covered West Wall. Grand Cayman also has something you might not expect: an amazing array of culinary offerings. Between the celebrity chefs who’ve set up shop on the island and the 135 or so resident nationalities that have helped season the island’s giant melting pot, this is, hands down, one of the best places to eat in the Caribbean. There’s also lots of walking (whether along the beach, around historic sites, or through lush gardens) as well as stunning swimming, snorkeling, and diving to be done.
