Description

Mexico City is huge and best explored by neighborhood. This 'south side' exploration will bring you to some of it's best treasures. En route to our destination we will visit University City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for it's architecture and murals painted by some of the cities most famous artists including Diego Rivera and David Alfaro Siqueiros.

Coyoacan is a local favorite hang out. This is the perfect place to people watch, and the perfect place to indulge in an afternoon coffee with perhaps the best churro in the city. Just ask your guide, he'll know where to take you. Take time to explore the Bazaar where you will get an introduction to street food. If you're feeling brave try grasshoppers - a favorite snack!

We'll also be sure to visit Frida Kahlo's Blue House, her birthplace and now a museum. Frida Kahlo is known for her paintings of herself, saying "I paint myself because I am the subject I know best". This is your opportunity to learn more about Frida and her persona. You'll also visit the Casa Estudio Diego Rivera, Frida's lover, and another notable artist.

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.
