Description

Your stop in Koper offers you a chance to see one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, The Skocjan Caves. This national treasure of Planet Earth is an awe inspiring opportunity that will leave you both humbled and amazed by Slovenia's natural beauty.

Considered to be on par with the likes of the Grand Canyon and Mount Everest, the Skocjan Caves were formed by the Reka river and represent a natural formation that can't be replicated anywhere else in the world. After being picked up at the cruise ship pier you will head to the Skocjan Caves Regional Park and disembark for the underground bridge that stands about 130 Feet above the Reka river. Enjoy your free time exploring the area with your guide as you take an educational walk throughout the caves.

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),
