We did some shopping in Aruba. Most of the shops were closed due to a Sunday and a holiday weekend.

We did the Inqusition Palace and shopping tour. This was OK. You got to see downtown which was better than the actual palace. Shopping was a joke. The shops were expensive and the goods seemed to be junk. Coffee at $10 a lbs someone is making some money!

This was the Panama Canal and we took the canal by boat. This was the best part of the entire trip. You actually did the entire transit from Caribbean to the Pacific. I recommend this trip if you really want to see all the locks.

This is the Costa Rica port(don;t remember the name of the port). We did the rain forest and aerial tram. It rained the entire day. We brought a jacket but not prepared for covering our entire body. Since we were wet & cold it was hard to enjoy yourself. The forest was pretty and all. But we were disappointed in the lack of wildlife.

Jamaica is Jamacia. The pestering of the people really takes away from the beauty of the area. We did some shopping and had a margarita at Jimmy Buffets. Everything is so expensive it is hard to understand why they have to charge $10. for a margarita.
