Day Trip/Excursions etc

We want to know about any day trips for snorkelling, speed boats, wave runner etc. Also, are there any booze cruises like they have in Cancun? We are very interested, just wanting to know about any excursions that occur away from the resort.

Thanks

We did speed boats which is at cayo guillemero only bad thing not on long enough no booze as you are driving make sure you keep up on way out as if you are fast and good driver you will come back flat out all the way if not you'll get left with the slows!!!! Snorkelling was good but again not long enough however plenty of people on beach to take you out in sea and better priced.

What happens in the jeep safari?

Also what happens extra in the catamaran full day compared to the half day (apart from there being more hours to enjoy the Cuban weather....)

the jeep saffari takes you to moron town and the crocodille farm,to a ranch where you have lunch,a short boat ride and up the mountain scenic drive..

british be warned you cannot drive the jeep yourself or ride the horses at the ranch as thomas cook insurence did not cover you.

the rep does not tell you this when you book only the canadians were allowed to drive their own jeeps the brits had to have a guide drive them.

There are 4 jeep excursions, not all does the horse riding and drive your own jeep.

The "jeep Sarari Cunagua' no horse back riding, guide and jeep with driver is provided, this one does not go to Moron.

Half Moon Island is a full day trip. You go by bus a short distance to Pilar beach. From there you take a motor boat over to Half Moon island (only a few minutes). Drinks and a meal are included on the island. But not while your on Pilar beach, though. On the island you go snorkelling and basically stay there for a few hours than take the motor boat back to Pilar beach and stay there an hour or two.

My opinion is that the snorkeling on half moon island was pretty lame, corals were mostly dead so not that much fish. Pilar beach is very nice. If I was ever to go back, I would just take a bus to Pilar beach. Forget paying the excursion price. There is a restaurant there that serves meals and drinks.

The Catamaran is an all day trip that stops a few places to snorkle, pretty much well a booze cruise to as the free bar opens as soon as you set off, you get a lobster lunch thrown in to , another decent snorkling trip is the glass bottom boat, its 20cuc and goes from beech by the Tryp hotel..takes you about 1.5 miles out to a realy nice choral reef wheer you snorkle for an hour or so, there is a speed boat trip to that you snorkle on,you drive your own speedboat about the mango grove to a spot to snorkle at. There is also a flying boat from on the beech to
