Ft. Lauderdale, Florida - There is an abundance of things to see and do in the Ft. Lauderdale area: visit the newly redesigned Ft.

Willemstad, Curacao - Curaçao is a treasure trove of cultural attractions, rich history, and natural scenery — from desert landscapes and rugged cliffs to 38 spectacular, and mostly secluded, beaches. Sint Anna Bay separates the two sides of the capital of Willemstad. Punda, the original settlement, is a tidy grid filled with shops and unique markets, restaurants and open-air cafes. Not to mention the famous tropicalized Dutch architecture in vibrant hues. Otrobanda (literally, “the other side”) is a maze of narrow streets and even narrower alleyways. And at only 40 miles long, a wide variety of island adventures are within easy reach during your Curaçao cruise.
Gatun Lake - Formed by an earthen dam, one of the largest artificial lakes in the world at 23.5 miles long.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica - Surrounded by nearly half of all the animal species on earth and 8,000 species of plants, marvel as you tour tropical flower farms or ride a Mawamba boat through the jungle canals. Or choose to stroll through the markets bursting with color in San Jose
