Expectations about Cartagena Columbia are usually about the history of this old walled city and its progression into today's world of carriage rides, old forts, and seaside views. But there is a wonderful ecosystem to explore. You will get a glimpse of Cartagena, old and new, as you head first to Fort of Saint Philip of Barajas for a panoramic drive-by view. It sits just outside the walled city and is considered the most outstanding feat of Spanish military engineering of the new world. The Spanish began building the fort in 1536 and construction lasted for 121 years. From this vantage point, you will see why it was so important to secure but you will also get a panoramic view of the city and the bay.

Your ride continues to the outskirts of the city. Your exploration of the tunnels is by canoe guided by a local. You can relax and take in the surroundings as you are poled through this diverse wealth and beauty of the natural landscape. The diverse ecosystem provides homes to a large variety of tropical birds, colorful fish and crustaceans. You can expect to see some of the more unusual local birds such as the kingfisher, white heron, common laura, pink spatula, and pelicans that dominate this area. The mangroves provide the oxygen to continue the growth and flourishing of this area. It is not only beautiful, but you have chosen an unusual way to see it, as you are totally free to take in the views thanks to your guide.

At the completion of your canoe ride you will have just enough time to view a little more of the old city on your return to your starting point.

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.
