Be preepred for street vendors.Otherwise,the old town and walled city are quite beautiful

Panama Canal (Cruise Into Canal)

5 out of 5
Still amazing after 105 years. Unfortunately it rained during our tour. However,the Panama Viejo and the UNESCO site were intriguing.

Cristobal, Panama

Just a stop over.

Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

3 out of 5
We had a good tour guide.Thought he tour was not what we expected as the banana plantation is closed to visitors. We should have taken the tram over the rain forest.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Been there before so we just took a two hour tour of the highlights. It was very hot.
