Description

Along the Dalmatian coast you scientifically will not find a sunnier location than Hvar. Also, with science in mind, the effect of this leads to some of the happiest people in all of Croatia. Couple that with all the wonders of the Dalmatian coast and you will find yourself in one of the most memorable places throughout Croatia. You can't debate science!

Explore new meeting the old as you stroll through the cultural heritage of Hvar with your personal guide. One of the sites you will visit on this history-rich tour is the famous Cathedral of St. Stephen. This spectacular church stands on the far end of the main town square called Pjaca. The present cathedral, built on the site of a 6th century Christian church, is the work of local masters and is a perfect blend of Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture. Snap some pictures of its 17th century bell tower which showcases the most memorable piece of architecture in town. Your walk will continue through narrow streets which reveal numerous monuments dating back to the 13th century.

If you are somewhere known as the "island of Lavender" it only makes sense to find out if it deserves the namesake. We'll link you up with a Phyto-Aroma therapist who will tell you everything you need about one of the area's top exports. Hvar produces some of the highest quality lavender throughout the world and your host will provide you with a history on one of the best known natural stress-relief tools around. Enjoy some lavender tea and head home with a gift bundle of local products!

As a perfect end to the day, your guide will recommend you travel to Hvar Fortress which is perched on a hill above downtown. The best view on the island.

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),
