Cartagena, Colombia
The City Tour we took was average and I haven't come away with any great impressions of Cartagena.
Puntarenas, Costa Rica
We did the Eco-River Adventure. Very interesting. Great guide.
Fuerte Amador, Panama
We went back through the Canal on a smaller boat and it was fascinating - definitely the highlight of our shore trips. The scale was so completely different than the cruise ship, it put the Canal in a whole new perspective.
Oranjestad, Aruba
No comment, we just walked around the town ourselves and didn't have enough time to sufficiently comment.

Self guided tour. No comment.
