Ocho Rios
Port Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

We decided that we just wanted to walk into town and look around. The people here are very aggressive. The shopping was located in one area of shops that were the same. We were glad that it was one of our stops as we really wanted to see it, and now that we have we know we don't want to return.

Puerto Limon
Banana Plantation Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Really very interesting to see a Del Monte banana plantation from the time the bananas are pulled in the assembly line. From the sorting to the washing and labeling of the banana. Our bus driver even stopped and picked up small 3 inch bananas for us to peel and try.

The Tortuguero Canals Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

We really enjoyed this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. The boat driver went out of his way to turn the boat so everyone could see.

Rainforest Aerial Tram Tour Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

We were so disappointed in the tour for the money we spent. The tour guide knew nothing of value to share and kept saying "My dear people", the pa system was too loud. The butterfly area had injured butterflies and only a few different kinds. The reptile cages were 1/2 empty. There very several different orchids :) The tram ride and the walk up to the top of the tower was really good. But the price was too much for only 20 minutes worth of tram ride and 1/2 empty displays.

Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We did not use the ship’s excursions but our own. We did a tour offered by a local on air conditioned bus at $10.00 a person. There was 30 of us on the bus. It took us to La Popa which had amazing views of the city and the cruise ships in port. Stopped at the Palacio de la Inquisicíon. Then we went to an Emerald factory but we went to the local market around the corner instead and enjoyed that very much. Then a very (way to short) stop at Las Bóvedas, once dungeons, now home to boutiques and tourist shops. On our way back to the ship we drove by the walled city and the clock tower and city ocean views. We really enjoyed the terminal with all the parrots and other animals for up close pictures...

We loved Aruba. We walked around all day and enjoyed the Iguanas on the beach and the FREE double decker trolley in town! The shopping was interesting and stores were not all the same. The weather was perfect. Can't wait to go back!
