If you mention a national park in Puerto Rico, everyone will think you are referring to El Yunque. But there is another option and it is much closer to the city of San Juan and it will also draw you into the highlights of the island, the vegetation and natural beauty that Puerto Rico is known for.

First meet your guide and enjoy a panoramic tour of San Juan. Listening to the history is entertaining for all ages as you pass the forts that protected the island from invaders and pirates in the past. The old buildings, the cobblestone streets, the malecons where you may see people playing dominos or checkers in the squares - all so much a part of the Puerto Rican culture yet as it is part of the United States, it has even more meaning in today's world.

From Old San Juan we will head to the highway and directly south for an interesting ride through the countryside. Just a over a half an hour ride away from downtown San Juan we will bring you to a pocket of treasures at the La Marquesa Park. This ecological park has six hundred acres of land densely populated by trees. Inside you will find many activities that are suitable for young and old, families and friends, anyone who wants to have fun exploring nature.

Knowing you have plenty of time you can explore the Butterfly Farm and the Aviary with its large collection of tropical birds at your leisure. Displays of macaws, cockatoos, Amazon parrots, peacocks, pheasants and flamingos, among others varieties from all over the world will entertain you. Easy walking paths connect the exhibits which include a cable car excursion above the forest that will delight all. Climb the observation tower to burn off that extra energy and get a bird's eye view of the forest. An artificial waterfall in the midst of the botanical garden makes for a perfect background for your family photos. You will also find a train ride that will take you around the park, delivering a lazy tour of the landscape.

And for those who enjoy extreme sports there are facilities available for zip lines, rappelling and hiking.

This setting is meant to entertain all ages and from its play area to its palm tree garden, it will deliver exactly that to everyone.

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.

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.
