Description

Santiago is a city of contrasts. With remnants of its colonial past intermingled with ultramodern, high-rise buildings in the financial center, this metropolis will surprise you. Begin by heading south through the downtown area, passing the Club Hípico, a beautiful horseracing track in the older residential area of the city.

Proceed alongside the Parque O’Higgins and the Cousiño Palace, built between 1870 and 1878 for the wealthy Cousiño family. From here, travel along the famous Alameda, Santiago's colourful main avenue. See the lively Plaza de Armas, the city's main square, and then cross the Mapocho River and the bohemian Bellavista district on the way to San Cristóbal Hill. From one of the hill's view points, you will have the finest views of Santiago and the Andes Mountains.

During the tour, lunch will be served in a local restaurant. Afterwards, a short stop will be made for those wishing to buy lapis lazuli, a semi-precious blue stone found only in Chile and Afghanistan. To round out the tour, you will pass through the modern residential areas of the city with their daring architecture.

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.
