They should offer more vegetarian choices and vary the menu items. Eating many of the items day after day gets old.

Take private taxi for a 2 or 3 hour drive around the city it is cheaper and gives you more flexibility for going and coming back.

Huatulco, Mexico

Trip to watch the live Volcano is must. Again take a private Van for 10-12 people for better value and flexibility.

Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Panama Canal Transit Did not visit port

Go early in the morning to get a better seat for most of the day to watch it from a higher perspective.

Cartagena, Colombia

5 out of 5
Do take the walking tour of the old town and get the flavor of the local food and people.

Oranjestad, Aruba

3 out of 5
The time on shore was not enough to go to the beaches. We only were able to walk the shopping strip full of jewelry stores and nick necks. Never got to see real Aruba.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
