Highlights

  • Cartagena, Columbia

    One of the most well preserved colonial areas, Cartagena’s UNESCO old town is breath taking. Its winding cobble streets, churches and picturesque balconies transform you to times of old, the sensual atmosphere and high temperatures making for a wonderful experience.

  • Falmouth, Jamaica

    Falmouth is the capital city of Jamaica’s Trelawny Parish. It's a busy cruise-ship port that lies between Ocho Rios and Montego Bay on the island’s north shore. The city is characterized by its Georgian architecture, concentrated in the Falmouth Historic District. Visually, little has changed in Falmouth since the 1840s, its Georgian-style buildings offering a delightful amalgamation with its tropical setting. Despite recent tourism, the port-town hasn’t changed much and is still a genuine insight into Jamaican life. Highlights include wonderful street theatre performances and discovering the town’s historic wealth through sugar and slavery.
  • Miami, Florida

    Arrive in Miami to sunny Florida skies, year-round warmth and sunshine, where you will spend 2 nights in the beautiful W South Beach Hotel. This cosmopolitan city offers a buzzing nightlife and a mix of cultures that define it. There is something for everyone in this city dubbed the "Gateway to the America's."

  • Monteverde Cloud Forest

    Visit the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve today, one of the most famous conservation areas in Central America. It is a tropical rain forest but because of its altitude (1400 meters or 4.600 feet), it's called a Cloud Forest. Here in Monteverde, warm northeasterly trade winds, filled with moisture, blow in from the Atlantic. As the winds sweep up to the Continental Divide, they cool and condense to form clouds, bathing the forest in a constant soft mist. It is home to rare and unusual wildlife, such as jaguars and pumas, and over 450 species of birds including the world's largest population of quetzal birds. The day’s activities will be determined nearer the time and will involve hiking at a leisurely pace. Return to your hotel in Monteverde.

  • Panama Canal

    The Panama Canal is one of Mankind's greatest engineering marvels. Stretching 50 Miles, this impressive waterway has earnt it's place on the list of World Wonders and should definitely take a place on your Bucketlist.
