OPTIONAL PRE HOTEL STAYS IN FORT LAUDERDALE
DAY 1 - Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Miles of sandy beaches, lively outdoor events, and a charming web of waterways help to make Fort Lauderdale a relaxed, vacation capital of Florida. The excitement is palpable, as cruise ships and gleaming yachts gather in the harbour ahead of adventures and luxury journeys across the waves. Soak up the relaxed atmosphere in the canal-laced 'Venice of America,' as you enjoy big label shopping on Las Olas Boulevard - or visit fancy restaurants and bustling art galleries. For a wilder experience, the swampy wetlands of the Everglades sprawl away nearby. Fort Lauderdale Beach is a lively stretch of sand, bordered by palm trees, and sprinkled with crowds enjoying the Sunshine State's generous weather. The charming promenade of red-brick tiles extends right along the beach's length and rumbles with passing rollerbladers and cyclists. Flick across the waves while paragliding, or relax with a coffee or a margarita in a beachfront bar, as volleyball games play out in front of you. For a quieter beach option, Olas Beach lies a little down the coast towards Port Everglades, and has extra space to spread out and tan on acres of smooth white sand. Spot the backs of alligators waiting patiently, and the toothy grins of crocodiles patrolling the murky waters of the Everglades – the USA's biggest tropical wetlands. A haven of extraordinary wildlife, birds wade through its swamps, and black bears and panthers roam its wilds. Take to a plane to appreciate the full scale of the national park or purr along exploring its waterways in a fan powered boat.
DAY 2 - At Sea
DAY 3 - Cozumel Quintana Roo, Mexico
Dive into the exuberant, colourful world of Cozumel - a Mexican island of exceptional scuba diving, snorkelling and dazzling beaches. Abundant underwater ecosystems swirl among reefs of black coral - attracting experts and beginners alike to the azure waters of this island. Mayan mythology says Cozumel was the sanctuary of the Goddess of fertility and love, Ixchel - and this seducing Mexican island of adventure and allure leaves all visitors head over heels. Waiting across the Carribean waters from Playa Del Carmen, and a world away from its lively resorts, Cozumel is an idyllic land of gently curving palm trees and tropical shores. Playa Palancar occupies the western coast, with velvety powder and balmy Caribbean seas. Relax, with just the notes of the washing sea and whispering palm trees accompanying you during splashes through the shallow waves or tanning sessions on the soft sand. Playa El Cielo - or the appropriately named Heaven Beach - is home to a divine constellation of starfish resting on the seabed, below its glass-clear waters. Stingrays and sea turtles also swirl in the waters, as you snorkel through some of the island's most vibrant and diverse displays of marine life. Beach bars serve up spicy Mexican fare with a seaside twist - like delicious prawn fajitas, fish tacos and lime-squeezed ceviches. The crumbling San Gervasio ruins, meanwhile, offer cultural intrigue and a fascinating insight into the remarkable ancient Mayan civilisation. Despite the presence of majestic ruins from antiquity, it's the giant iguanas, soaking up the sun in clearings, who often unwittingly steal the show.
DAY 4 - Belize City
Diverse and joyously discordant, Belize City is a place of beachside luxury, colonial pomp and authentic ramshackle streets. While no longer the official capital of Belize, it remains the country’s busiest and most populated city. Listen closely to the hum of chatter from the locals, and chances are you’ll only pick out fragments of the sentences exchanged, as the languages in this diverse location have merged and diverged over the years. Various creoles are spoken, adding extra colour and vitality to this lively, multicultural destination. Belize Tourism Village’s leaning wooden huts and swaying palm trees invite you ashore, and you can share a welcome drink by the waves, or shop for hand-carved souvenirs. Offshore, gorgeous beaches and sparkling marine life await at the gorgeous Turneffe Atoll. A little further out still sits the Great Blue Hole - a mysterious inky eye that sinks deep into the turquoise Caribbean and has been fascinating experienced divers for years. From Belize City, adventures amid the dense jungle beckon, or you can kick back and sample local restaurants, tasting everything from delicious lobster tail to fresh lionfish. Cucumber Beach gives you space to unwind and soak up the sun’s generous rays nearby. Belize City itself is split in half by Haulover Creek, which flows through the city and is spanned by the landmark Belize City Swing Bridge. A delightfully antiquated piece of engineering, it requires the elbow grease of four operators to open it and make way for taller ships to pass. The Museum of Belize brings the country’s history to life, pulling no punches in its treatment of the brutal slave history, and exploring the fascinating ancient Mayan civilisation, which thrived here around AD 250.
DAY 5 - Roatan Island
Sunlight patterns sparkle on turquoise waters, while pristine white sand beaches glow, on this heavenly slice of Caribbean paradise. Roatan Island is a narrow spindly refuge, and the rich marine life of the Mesoamerican reef draws visitors to its white sand shores, to explore below the surface of glowing waters. Expert and novice divers alike will be treated to a blur of colour, while investigating the world’s second-biggest reef, where multi-coloured life dances wherever you look. Inland, dense forest and jungle cloak the island with emerald green, and shelter yet more exotic animal life. Roatan Island is the largest of the Honduran Bay Islands and sits sandwiched between Guanaja and Utila. A diving paradise and an eco-tourism hotspot, there is easy access to the sprawling underwater marvel of the Caribbean’s largest coral reef - a flourishing underwater wonder. West Bay Beach is a typically idyllic Caribbean island beach, featuring white sand, crystal clear beautiful water, and waving palm trees. Settle into inviting restaurants where you can eat flavourful local fare and try the ubiquitous baleadas, delicious wraps stuffed with mashed beans. Exotic animal life roams in Gumbalimba Park, where capuchin monkeys drop down from the trees, macaws call out and hummingbirds hover beside blooming flowers. Roatan Island is a relaxing place and you can learn from the masters of taking it slow at the Sloth Sanctuary. Roatan Island may specialise in unwinding, but face to face underwater meetings with sleek - but harmless - sharks are sure to get the adrenaline pumping.
DAY 6 - Day at Sea
DAY 7 - Day at Sea
DAY 8 - Puerto Limon
Christopher Columbus became Costa Rica's first tourist when he landed on this stretch of coast in 1502 during his fourth and final voyage to the New World. Expecting to find vast mineral wealth, he named the region Costa Rica ("rich coast"). Imagine the Spaniards' surprise eventually to find there was none. Save for a brief skirmish some six decades ago, the country did prove itself rich in a long tradition of peace and democracy. No other country in Latin America can make that claim. Costa Rica is also abundantly rich in natural beauty, managing to pack beaches, volcanoes, rain forests, and diverse animal life into an area the size of Vermont and New Hampshire combined. It has successfully parlayed those qualities into its role as one the world's great ecotourism destinations. A day visit is short, but time enough for a quick sample.
DAY 9 - Panama Canal Transit
Enter the mighty Panama Canal, one of history’s most ambitious and spectacular stretches of waterway. Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and slicing through the heart of a continent, the canal is a staggering engineering triumph, eliminating the need to traverse the treacherous waters of South America and Cape Horn. Sail one of the world’s great canals to appreciate the true scale of this achievement, as your ship manoeuvres between its vast, gushing locks and huge lakes. The French began construction in 1881, but the costly project was left abandoned and unfinished until the United States finally completed the work in 1914. Following the path of the Panama Railway of 1855, locks raise ships large and small 26 metres up above sea level to the canal’s elevated channel. New locks have recently been added, which allow the canal to accommodate ever bigger ships. Leaving the confinement of the locks, you will enter the canal’s channel, to sail through Panama’s core. Wide lakes are linked by painstakingly chiselled wedges of canal, which slice through the lush scenery. Look out for the Culebra Cut section, the most challenging stretch of the entire route to construct. The Bridge of the Americas is a vast arched landmark, which sweeps across the Pacific Entrance and was completed in 1962. It’s one of several huge bridges that you will sail below on the 51-mile journey, including the much newer Centennial Bridge, and the Atlantic Bridge, which spans the entrance close to Colon.
DAY 10 - Fuerte Amador (Panama City)
Expect incredible morning views as you arrive into the port for Panama City. Tinged with a silver pre-dawn light, the city will metamorphosise into a golden glow as the sun rises above it. And from then on expect one stunning view after another. Very interesting in its own right, Fuerte Amador is obviously overshadowed by its proximity to Panama City. So should the Miraflores museum of the Canal, which offers a comprehensive and immersive tour of the Canal including a 3-D experience, four exhibition halls, an observation deck, and a surprisingly good restaurant not interest you then there is always the option of lovely Casco Viejo – literally the old quartier of Panama. The grand old colonial houses, cobbled streets, independent boutiques and buzzing street scene make this a must stop on your itinerary. And if you like seafood, you will not want miss the many restaurants and market stalls serving different variations of so-fresh-it’s-still-practically-swimming ceviche. Best eaten like the Panamanians do, with salty crackers and a cold beer on the beach. And if money is no object, a cup of geisha coffee – supposedly the world’s best and definitely the world’s most expensive at $7 a shot is definitely a pick me up! Cool cosmopolitan capital aside, Panama has a skyscraper filled skyline that is worthy of some of its North American counterparts. But if urban utopia is not your scene then fear not, the sandy beaches and lush rainforests are never more than a short cab ride away.
DAY 11 - Fuerte Amador (Panama City)
DAY 12 - Day at Sea
DAY 13 - Guayaquil, Ecuador
The second major jumping off point for the Galapagos Islands after Quito, this is a little city with a big heart. A sea port first and foremost, the city’s personality has been founded on that, and all the better it is for it too. Almost Caribbean in feeling, the clement climate coupled with the intermingling rhythms floating from the windows and abundance of fresh seafood make this a very tropical destination. Once not even considered by the travel books as a potential destination in its own right, the city has undergone something of a resurgence in the past few years. Proud Guayaquileños will not hestitate to point out the Malecón or the exciting new riverfront promenade, once a no-go area after dark, now happily (and hippily) lined with museums, restaurants, shops, and ongoing entertainment. The new airport and urban transportation network are also lauded to the happy tourists who find themselves here. As the largest and most populous city in Ecuador as well as being the commercial centre, it would only be natural that the city would have some kind of modern architecture, but it is the colourful favelas, or to use their real name guasmos, that cling to the side of the hillside like limpets that really catch your eye. A blend of old and new, the first inhabitants can be traced back to 1948 when the government cleared the area for affordable housing, these shanty towns are witness to the social and political particularities that Guayaquil has faced in the past.
DAY 14 - Guayaquil, Equador
DAY 15 - Day at Sea
DAY 16 - Salaverry, Peru
Ancient cultures and magical ruins wait to be discovered along Peru’s compelling western coastline. With the Andes rising nearby, and the deep blue Pacific’s waves lapping against its sun-parched shores, this is a unique and inspiring place, where wonders from yesteryear exhibit amazing geometric patterns and stylised artwork. Salaverry welcomes you ashore close to Trujillo, Peru’s second-largest city, set in a land scattered with impressive ruins and archaeological treasures left by ancient civilisations. Sugarcane, pineapple and asparagus grow in the fertile Moche Valley, and this area is sprinkled with immense, impressive ruins from the Moche and Chimu cultures. The sprawling Chan Chan Ruins are all that's left of a mighty, pre-Columbian city, moulded from sand and mud. The city rose between 900 and 1470, and was the capital of the Chimor empire. One of the largest adobe cities in the world - and the biggest of the Americas - it would eventually fall to decline after the Incas conquered it. The temple of Huaca del Dragón is also close by, rising as a small pyramid, embossed with relief patterns of fire-breathing dragons and animals. South of the Moche River the remains of the Huaca del Sol y la Luna temples loom, built to honour the sun, moon and heavens by the Moche civilization. Trujillo itself is splashed with colonial colour and soaring palm trees, and there are plenty of cathedrals and museums to explore. You’ll want to taste traditional Huanchaco ceviche while you’re here, soft prawns or sea bass combined with spicy red chillies and a tangy squeeze of lime.
Optional Post Machu Picchu Discovery
DAY 17 - Lima (Callao), Peru
Splashing colour and culture into the arid Peruvian landscape, Lima is a city bedecked with grand colonial splendour. Founded in 1535, this sprawling capital enjoys a breezy oceanfront location and forms one of the world's largest desert cities. A place of sharp contrasts, almost 10 million people are packed into the city, occupying vastly different living conditions. Visit for an unfiltered experience of this richly layered place of ancient history, colonial relics and dazzling flavours. Rising from the misty blanket of the garua - a persistent fog that cloaks Lima during winter - you'll find one of South America's most culturally vibrant cities. The former capital of the Spanish colonists - head to Plaza de Armas to immerse yourself in the heart of the old city. The Basilica Cathedral of Lima watches over Plaza Mayor - listen out for the stomps of boots outside, as the pomp and ceremony of the Changing of the Guards draws crowds to the Government Palace. The history of this area runs much deeper, however, and pre-Colombian cities and temples emerge from the dusty earth nearby. Grand museums showcase unearthed treasures from the extraordinary civilisations who built vast mud adobe cities across Peru's coastline, and incredible settlements in the country's valleys and mountains. The Barranco district is Lima's artsy area, and you can walk from modern art galleries to see the local muse, the Bridge of Sighs. This wooden bridge is an artist's favourite, and one of the city's most romantic spots. Afterwards, sample some of Lima's cuisine, and the zingy flavours of spicy, lime-marinated fish ceviche. So revered in these parts, ceviche even has its own national day on June 28th. Sipping a Pisco Sour is the perfect way to round off your visit to this engrossing, multi-layered city.
