HELP !!! cruise stop changed to Costa Maya

Just found out our cruise (FEB 3) may change from a day in Belize (that we had planned to go cave tubing) to Costa Maya. Not real happy if that happens. Have stayed on Cozumel several times and also the Akumal area. So we love snorkling.. Is there a snorkling catamaran tour we could do or what else would you suggest??? thanks so much I really appreciate any ideas :}

¨drive was through fairly hurricane spoilt scenery so not very picturesque. ¨

In my opinion, it was never very picturesque, even before hurricane damage.

"Of course , Carnival has invested much in their Costa Maya facility and it may be they are trying to maximize their profits."

Pretty sure Carnival has not invested into Costa Maya. Most of their ships stop in Cozumel, while only one is scheduled in Costa Maya.

It happened to us on the week of March 17-24.

We hopped off the Carnival Legend and left the commercialized port finding a small stand across from the Tequila Museum Shop between the port and the man-made temple at the end of the street. They offered a tour to the Costa Maya Ruins at Chacchoben with Tucan Costa Maya Tours. A much better value than booking through the cruise and a smaller tour group (we had 8 in our group).

Our tour guide Deanna was very informative on the drive there and on site, guiding us through the ruins. You can also book this at http://www.tucancostamaya.com.

It was an a great experience.
