After picking you up at the pier, you will embark on a great full day tour to San Jose! The drive each way is about 90 minutes and spectacular. We'll drive along the Pan American Highway, the nation's most scenic road!

Your route will travel through lush valleys, green pastures, coffee plantations, and several small villages. Once we arrive in San Jose, the scenic drive of this cosmopolitan capital takes in the Metropolitan Cathedral and the landmark National Theater.

With its ornate 19th-century, neo-Classical architecture, elaborate murals, and gilded baroque fixtures, the National Theater is considered the most beautiful building in the country. Visit the National Museum, this former fortress is home to a vast collection of archaeological and historic artifacts.

Continue onto the exclusive Rohrmoser district, La Sabana Park, and National Stadium. Next we'll enjoy a delicious lunch at one of the best restaurants in San Jose.

On the return to your ship, you will also make shopping stops at different souvenir’s shops where you can get that special gift you are looking for (however, no pressure to purchase).

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.
