Cartagena (Colombia)
Mangrove Eco Canoe Journey Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Very unique experience. Short bus tour through city, followed by steered canoe through natural tunneled mangroves. The tour guide is pleasant, friendly, and ensures everyone is safe an comfortable. Interesting perspective of native life.

Beach Break Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
We took a cab to de palm pier and went Tubing!

Was 20$/ person and our family of 4 loved it! The driver took pictures for us, and went at a pace suitable for our small children.

We later walked around near port- nearby the little market is a great place to buy Caribbean souvenirs- 4/$1.00!! Later wished we bought more there.

Curacao
Port Rating: Not Rated
We just walked around the outdoor mall, took the fairy to downtown.

Little tip: FREE WIFI AT Starbucks near the port.

The city is colorful and beautiful. There is great shopping. Check out "Velez" leathers are really nice!

You can find in Colombia also.

The water is gorgeous here. We did not do a snorkel or scuba- but I would read some other comments of some that did, because after seeing the water, I would when we return some day.

If you have time take a can to air port beach! The air planes are almost within reach, it's very cool if you happen to be there when a large plane is landing! It will blow everything away so be careful!


Catamaran Tour Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Wonderful catamaran experience. Snorkeling was great this trip. The beach was nice, private area.

Excellent experience. Friendly staff on the boat.

First, stop and get a coconut smoothie and a coconut and brown sugar cookie! They give out samples at the port, I waited a whole year to come back they are delicious! Than take a water taxi downtown and walk around, barefoot bar and restaurant is great local food. Coconut rice and coconut curry chicken.

Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
The sky ride is fun. I'm a little afraid of heights, but it's worth it, gorgeous view from up top.

There are beautiful stores downtown, which is a short taxi ride from port. Tavern on the waterfront in a nice indoor rooftop restaurant with great food.

If you or children are Into pirates, there is a pirate shop downtown.

Gorgeous Jewlery stores in St Thomas. In my opinion some of the best deals in the Caribbean .
