Yup!

Hello!!

I have a question for you please. For those of us who've done Nachi a couple of times wanting to try something else. Would you recommend spending a cruise visit at Paradise Beach or Money Bar? Thanks

Those are two very different venues.  PB is pushing all-inclusive, but on slow port days may offer a pay as you go option.  It is very large, with great facilities, a HUGE pool, water toys and a sandy beach.  Food and drinks there are average to above average for a beach club (love their taco truck!).

 

MB is much smaller, no admission fee, strictly pay as you go, no sandy beach, no pool and no water toys.  Good snorkeling from the shore, rental gear if you need it, and the food/drinks quality is about even with PB.

 

Which to choose sort of depends upon what you are looking for.  If you can find an old review from Mitsugirly, she did both locations in one day (morning at MD, afternoon at PB).

 

Have a great cruise!

With the snorkelling from shore at Money Bar, do you walk into deep water or is it a shallow entrance that gets gradually deeper?   Do you need to be deep to see fish?

Unless it has changed there were steps to get into the water.  You do not need to go deep to see fish in the area.

The steps can be a little slick and sometimes the waves are crashing against them, so you just have to be a little careful, and you need to swim away from them fairly quickly so you dont get pushed back into them. It's about 4 ft deep or so right and out from them shore a little its probably 15-20 ft deep. I think you need to be at least a moderately decent swimmer to do it.

Sky Reef is probably easier. You can check out their website and you tube reviews.
