This new landmark of the ciry is a state-of-the-art architectural and entertainment complex designed by renowned architect Santiago Calatrava. You will see why this man has become the new rising star in the world of architecture. Mr. Calatrava was born in Valencia and the city is quite proud of his accomplishments.

Walk along the Turia Gardens to observe the impressive North Facade of the Science Museum, which simulates a glazed waterfall over the dry riverbed. Then
walk to the Hemisferic, a building conceived as a large human eye where IMAX movies, planetarium and laser shows are shown.

Next is a visit to the Umbráculo, a palm-tree garden covered by a "pergola" made of iron.

From here you will walk to the Oceanographic, considered to be the largest and most important marine park in Europe, where you will enter and observe the sea fauna of the most important ecosystems of the planet: the Mediterranean Sea, Wetlands, Temperate Seas, Tropical Seas, Patagonia Islands, Artic, Antarctic and Oceans.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
