Western Caribbean Resorts & Cruises

Western Caribbean Resorts & Cruises
The Western Caribbean region runs from the North from Mexico down to Jamaica. Popular destinations include Cozumel in Mexico, Grand Cayman in The Cayman Islands, and Ocho Rios in Jamaica. As Caribbean destinations are becoming more popular, new ports are beginning to see increased travel, such as Belize City in Belize. The reasoning behind this could be the Western Caribbean wide range of water sports, exploration of ancient civilizations, and tropical settings.

Carnival Cruise Lines

Carnival Cruise Lines offers an entire selection of itineraries that cover the Western Caribbean. The company offers short four-day cruises that stop at one or two locations, as well as eight-day cruises that stop at most of the popular Western Caribbean destinations, including Panama, Costa Rica, and Belize. All ports have a variety of available shore excursions. For example, in Panama alone, you can kayak the Panama Canal, fish in Gatun Lake, or visit the Embera Indian Village.
