  1. At the docks in Old San Juan, not the Navy pier. And yes, tons of bars and restaurants within a short walk.
  2. 180 from Sanchos. But a good way to mix up beaches.
  3. Trellis Bar or Rising Tide for traditional gin or vodka martini. 150 Central for the Cucumber. All the rest are wasted of good ingredients
  4. If you book with the ship, you need to meet where the ship says to meet. They need to count and get the ship group in the same rafts. Same vendor doesn't mean same group of rafts, departure times, length of trip or return times.
  5. We booked a spa cove on deck 5. On Dream, Magic and Breeze, with great spasms, the convenience of an upper deck spa cabin was a plus. The smaller spa on the Vista and Horizon weren't worth it, IOO. We also thought the offerings of upper deck spa cabins on the Mardi Gras, would not be as convenient either.
  6. Last time We were there it picked up at Sr Frogs. In the parking lot. I understand SF has closed but maybe the teams work.
  7. Cars aren't brand new but in good condition at Isis Renta A Car. It's right downtown by the Punta Langosta Pier. The owner is a straight shooter. https://www.isiscarrental.com/ There's a good post out on Trip Advisor about renting cars on Cozumel. Suggest you give it a read, even if to just refresh your memory. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Travel-g150809-c178736/Cozumel:Mexico:How.To.Rent.A.Car.html
  8. There's a tram from port. Or you can walk. Nice walk. Or a taxi.

    Port WiFi

    Which ship are you on? Which port on Roatan? Unless it's changed, you can access WiFi at one of the restaurants on the beach at Mahogany Bay with food and drink purchase. Waitstaff will give you the password. Or maybe some "generous" fellow cruiser will tell you for "free". Not sure if the reno'ed Port at Coxen Hole includes wifi, but it used to be available at Fonsie's just outside the cruise port. There are some newer restaurants near the port and they may have it. There are places on the West End and West Bay that have wifi for free if you buy food or drink.
  10. As I recall, both the Wet Lizard and the Bearded Clam have wifi available for patrons. Purchase necessary. There may be other places in the Tourism Village at the tender pier as well. the Chocolate Factory place had it when they operated there. Just outside the TV, the hotels--Radisson, Ramada, Great Inn--have wifi access.
  11. I seem to recall that on the Oasis the coffee in the Park Café, Solarium and Promenade was "Seattle's Best". But that could have just been the labeling on the urns used.
  12. And so does Tropicante, Pez Quadro, Pitaya, Krazy Lobster, Jaimes Blue Reef, Nohoch Kay, Blue Kay, et.al. Every beach club along the malecon pitches in to clean up the sargassum. It's in all their best interests. But none can do anything about murky water as they are all along the same shore line. One reason the OP may NOT want to go to YaYas is the crowds from ship excursions and the closeness of other beach clubs on a 3 ship day.
  13. Which ship? Which port, Havensight or Crown Bay? Havensight is an easy walk to Charlotte Amalie, or a short tram ride from the pier. BlueBeard's Castle, 99 steps. Skly ride to Paradise Point above the city ( forget the wine, get the BushWhacker). A.H. Riise probably best place in Havensight for wine, but there are a couple of other stores in that mall. Crown bay, need a taxi to C.A. But in C.A. VI Wines on Back Street would be a good stop. Owner knows his stuff.
  14. Water taxi is long (90 minutes taxi ride each way, plus 40 minutes RT for tender to ship). Stops at Caye Caulker before San Pedro. Then again before back to Belize City. But times are not frequent. You may have to catch the 11:30A back, depending on ship time for last tender from tender pier). Reasonable price ($38 RT). There are hourly flights to and from San Pedro to Belize City (15 minute flight). More expensive (around $70 each way but early flight are cheaper) plus a 20 minute taxi ride both directions. So say an hour 1/2 total travel time from stepping on the ship's tender. And an hour and a half return. But you have more time on Ambergris Caye. You need to make sure that you pick the correct flight for return as your ship time and Belize time may be different.
