Nassau
9/25/2021
9/25/2021

You'll recall sunning and strolling on a seemingly endless white sand beach. Or relaxing in the shade of coconut palms. You'll remember the crystal-clear water and the multicolored tropical fish. And you'll certainly recollect the graceful gestures of the uniformed "bobbies" directing traffic in the bustling downtown. Nassau will delight you in many ways. With its colorful Colonial architecture. With the warmth of its people. And with the infectious music of steel drums. It's very likely you'll leave this happy place with lots of duty-free gifts and mementos and at least one straw hat.

Cockburn Town is the historical and cultural Capital of Turks and Caicos Islands. It has been said that this was the first landing site of Columbus when he set out to discover the new world. Duke and front streets are rich with 18th and 19th century landmarks and  buildings reflecting bermudan style architecture. A popular site with visitors is the Turks and Caicos museum, which houses a 3-D coral reef exhibit and a wild collection of messages in bottles that have washed ashore from all over the world.

Port Antonio

Some say movie star Errol Flynn was the first to float down the Rio Grande River on a raft. In this part of Jamaica, it's still a good way to spend a few idyllic hours.

Montego Bay

10/1/2021

Montego Bay, with its hotels and beaches, offers the best of the Caribbean. Visit the famous Rose Hall Great House which was once home to the White Witch of Rose Hall, now owned by millionaire John Rollins. Legend has it the White Witch, Annie Palmer murdered her four husbands in addition to numerous slaves that worked on the plantation. Or go to the historic town of Falmouth, famous for its Georgian architecture. At Rafter's Village, a breathtaking ride takes visitors downstream on a 30' bamboo raft, guided by a trained and experienced raft captain.

Grand Cayman (George Town)
10/2/2021
10/2/2021

Grand Cayman attracts most Cayman tourists, most of whom flock to Seven Mile Beach. Divers see abundant marine life. Gentle stingrays cluster at Stingray City. Rum Point serves up cinnamony rum punch. Spend an entire day floating in clear azure waters. At dawn, head out on a dive boat or tan on decadent Seven Mile Beach. Check out underwater sights without getting wet on a 100-foot descent on Atlantis Submarine or an 800-foot descent in a two-person sub to a shipwreck. Head to Hell, with its velour-clad devil, before zipping over to Turtle Farm. Grand Cayman's sparsely populated East End is refreshing with long streches of rocky coast. The oldest island structure is a castle rumored to have been built by pirates two centuries ago in Savannah. Blowholes offer awesome spots for picture of watery spires. Harborside George Town has tempting shops. Among popular nightlife spots are Ramada's Treasure Island and Island Rock. Hopping pubs include Lone Star Bar & Grill or My Bar on the shores of Sunset House.

Providencia Island
10/4/2021
10/4/2021

Providencia, is one of a group of islands in the Caribbean, to the north of the coast of Panama but belonging to Colombia. It is the second largest island of the group and is volcanic island and much older than San Andrés, the largest island. The highest peak is El Pico, which is well worth a walk. Providencia is rapidly becoming a fashionable spot for Colombian tourists. Aguadulce on the western coast has already been converted into a tourist centre with hotels, restaurants, boat and snorkelling gear rental. However, the rest of the island has remained virtually unspoiled. The coral reefs around Providencia are extensive and provide for good snorkeling and diving. There is much fine Caribbean English-style architecture and the locals are very friendly.

Corn Islands
10/5/2021
10/5/2021

The Corn Islands lie of the coast of Nicaragua and are one of the Caribbean's forgotten tropical paradises.  Both islands are lush with exotic fruit trees, breezy palm trees, and sandy beaches. Adventure seekers come here for the amazing fishing, scuba diving and snorkeling.

Bocas del Toro
10/6/2021
10/6/2021

In the islands of Bocas you know you are on vacation the moment you arrive. You have an inmediate sense of unspoiled and unpolluted nature. The islands offer a great diversity of attractions and natural environments, uncommon to other regions of the continent: luxurious rain forests with an abundance of fauna and flora, sunny islands, beaches that compete with the Caribbean best, coral reefs in crystal clear water, mangrove islets in a lake-like scenery, guaymi indian villages and a national marine park that protects examples of the ecosystems and natural resources coexisting within the Archipelago boundaries, as a tribute to our future generations.

San Blas Islands
10/7/2021
10/7/2021

The friendly Cuna Indians live quietly on these primitive islands off Panama's Caribbean coast. The arrival of visitors to their home is still a special occasion for these isolated island dwellers. They are happy to be photographed in their colorful attire, for perhaps a small tip. Bargain for one of their fancifully designed handmade embroideries called molas.

Panama Canal
10/8/2021
10/8/2021

Linking the Atlantic to the Pacific, the Panama Canal provides one of cruising's most unforgettable experiences. Over 10 years were needed to complete the canal's 51 miles in 1914 - so avoiding the lengthy and often dangerous voyage around Cape Horn. 'The Big Ditch' lifts vessels by a fascinating feat of mechanics aided by on-shore 'mule' locomotives through three great locks, traversing man-made lakes, channels blasted through rock, and the dense jungle. Two other special highlights of the canal are Gatun Lake and the Gaillard cut. Gatun Lake is one of the world's largest man-made lakes covering 163 square miles. Gaillard Cut is an 8 mile channel built through solid rock which was the most difficult excavation in the canal construction.

Panama City
10/9/2021
10/9/2021

The sights of Panama City are many, but much of it can be seen on foot. The Plaza de Francia is dedicated to the 22,000 workers who perished while building the Panama Canal. The ruins of the Church of Santo Domingo features an arch that has stood unsupported for hundreds of years. The golden altar of the Church of San Jose is the only original piece of architecture completely in tact after the Pirate Henry Morgan destroyed the city. There are many museums to explore in Panama City including: the newly restored Museum of Religious Art; the Museum of the History of Panama; the Atnthropology Museum; and the Museum of Natural Science. At Panama Viejo, view all the remains of the city’s original site.
