DAY 1 - Embarkation Fort Lauderdale
From the bustling city center to the sandy beaches that seem to form a halo around this Floridian fun-land, Fort Lauderdale is alive with activity. The waterways are dotted with luxury yachts from harbors around the world, and exclusive homes line the waterfront. The posh boutiques on Las Olas Boulevard cater to the sophisticated sun-worshipers who enjoy 'the season' in Florida.
DAY 2 - Cruising The Florida Strait At Sea
DAY 3 - Cruising The Yucatan Channel At Sea
DAY 4 - Belize City
Evening: 8:00 to 18:00
As the center and one-time capital of the country, Belize City boasts an array of historic attractions - St. John's Cathedral, the Swing Bridge, Government House Museum and the colorful fruit market, all of which can be seen on a city tour.
DAY 5 - Hunting Caye
The cayes of Belize sit atop the second-longest coral barrier reef in the world. We chose this idyllic setting as the perfect spot to lower the Marina and play in the crystalline waters swarming with brilliantly colored fishes. Expect our lavish Caviar in the SurfSMbeach barbecue, as well.
DAY 6 - Roatan Bay Islands, Honduras
Evening: 8:00 to 17:00
Columbus reached this part of the Caribbean coast in 1502 and named the region Honduras, meaning "deep," for the waters in which his ships anchored. The Bay Islands chain, lying 40 miles off of the Honduran coast, is composed of more than 65 cays and eight islands, with Roatan Island being the largest of the group.
Roatan's colorful history is quite different from that of mainland Honduras. The islanders are native English speakers and proud of their traditions. First inhabited by Paya Indians, in the beginning of the 17th century it became a refuge for British pirates who preyed on Spanish ships. Port Royal, at the island's eastern end, was a pirate stronghold and, according to local legend, the treasure from Henry Morgan's 1671 raid on Panama is buried somewhere nearby. Britain and Spain fought over Roatan for many years until it was finally settled by black and white farmers from the Cayman Islands, also a British colony at the time. Britain ceded Roatan to Honduras in 1859.
Reefs of varying depths ring the island and water enthusiasts can explore canyons, shipwrecks, coral gardens and stunning walls rich in marine life. But the beauty of the island is more than skin (diving) deep; it also boasts breathtaking natural scenery. Roatan is bisected by a 1,300 foot mountain ridge which is covered with pine and oak forests. Down its slopes are stands of denser jungle which give way to palm-fringed secluded beaches along the shore.
DAY 7 - Cruising The Caribbean Sea At Sea
DAY 8 - Puerto Moin
Evening: 9:00 to 18:00
Explore the splendid nature of Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast high in the forest canopy, kayaking through the rainforest, threading through the mangrove forests of Tortuguero in a boat, visiting a premier conservation project, or taking a scenic excursion to Costa Rica's coffee fields to learn about its most famous crop.
DAY 9 - Cruising The Caribbean Sea At Sea
DAY 10 - Transiting The Panama Canal Panama Canal
DAY 11 - Fuerte Amador
Evening: 8:00 to 18:00
Formerly a fortified armory, this newly developed port is the portal to colonial Panama City and an in-depth look at Miraflores Locks. Also from here, you can visit an Embera Indian village.
DAY 12 - Cruising The Pacific Ocean At Sea
DAY 13 - Puerto Quepos
Evening: 8:00 to 17:00
Puerto Quepos is important as a transport hub in Costa Rica. Originally built as a banana exporting port, it now handles mainly the export of palm oil. Thousands of acres of African Palm replaced the banana plantations, which were undermined by disease in the early 1950s. In recent years the coastal area south of Quepos has been developed for tourism and there are now a number of hotels in the area.
DAY 14 - San Juan Del Sur
Evening: 8:00 to 17:00
Nearby Granada, founded by the Spanish conquistadores in 1524, is said to be the oldest city on the American continent. Walk Grenada's narrow streets, lined with colonial buildings such as the House of Lions and the Convent Church of San Francisco, for an intriguing journey back in time. Shoppers will delight in the excellent arts and crafts market.
DAY 15 - Disembarkation Caldera
In 1502, Columbus landed at what is known today as Puerto Limon. Awed by the stunning natural beauty, and perhaps thinking of the possibility of gold, he called it Costa Rica (Rich Coast), a name it well deserves. Although later it was learned that there was comparatively little gold, the natural treasures were enough to attract numerous settlers. Costa Rica is a paradise where orchids bloom all year round, and forests of rosewood, cedar and mahogany scent the air. Since colonial times, Costa Rica has had a unique social makeup. It was settled by those Spanish immigrants who valued natural beauty over gold. The rugged mountain terrain made it unsuitable for large plantations, so the economic system was based on many independent family farms rather than on land cultivated by a privileged few. This is the key factor explaining why, since gaining independence in 1821, Costa Rica has been Latin America's most stable democracy.
