We had booked a tour with "tour by van" which we had arranged before we left on the cruise. The tour was excellent although the van could have been in better condition. Our guide Hector took us to the local market, very interesting and saw local life. Then visited Chapel of Peace & Love, excellent and fantastic views, then on to the Los Flamingos Hotel, pity we did not have more time here but lovely hotel with fantastic views.
The "cliff divers" were next and the tour included ordinary entry to the public viewing areas, we found an excellent viewpoint just on the right hand side as you walk down the steps just down from the divers changing room, there was even a bit of shade. The show lasts about 20/30 minutes but you have to be there approx 20 minutes beforehand so a lot of standing around if this is a problem. It was suggested we tip the divers about US$1 per person.
On our tour we also stopped at a number of "vista" points to see the view which were all excellent.
Was taken to a local restaurant on a beach for lunch - your choice of food and drink which you paid for individually. No rush over lunch just when we had finished. We then took in the local cathedral before returning to the ship.
Disappointed with the trip but you take your chances and I am not sure if other trips north fared any better.
The harbour water though has a lot of fish which you can see by just walking down the promenade so if you are not particularly interested in going snorkelling this might be a better option.
Then we drove to the aerial skywalks and to be fair I was disappointed as expected to see much more wildlife, generally only saw very small birds and lots of leaf cutter ants. It is quite a walk along forest track and lots of steps downhill which is mentioned in the excursion information.
Stopped then at a cultural village for a drink and some fruit which was welcoming and had a look round the local shops.
On the way back we tried to spot some of the scarlet macaws in an area where they are known but only managed to find one. Then on a road bridge on the way back we crossed by foot and saw loads of crocodiles in the estuary area, fabulous.
