    Behold the inspiring natural beauty of Nicaragua’s wild, volcanically formed countryside and explore two of its finest cities: artistic Masaya and colonial Granada. more...

    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a leisurely one and three-quarters hour drive north through a gorgeous tropical landscape. This verdant region exemplifies Nicaragua’s nickname, the “Land of Lakes and Volcanoes,” and Masaya beautifully captures those natural attractions, as it sits on the edge of Lake Masaya in the shadow of Masaya Volcano National Park.


    Most of your time in the city will be devoted to exploring Masaya Market, one of the country’s foremost artisan markets. Colorful hammocks, hand-woven baskets, creative folk art, and delicately embroidered clothing are typically on display. Continuing on, you will drive toward Masaya Volcano National Park, located just outside the city it showcases two smoking volcanoes and several large craters formed by past volcanic activity. The landscape is absolutely mesmerizing and from the comfort of your coach, you’ll get an up-close look at steaming fumaroles.


    Then, following a traditional Nicaraguan lunch at a nearby restaurant, you will set out on a walking tour of nearby Granada, a magnificent city overlooking massive Lake Nicaragua. Founded as a trade center in 1524 by Spanish conquistadors, Granada boasts some of the country’s most well preserved colonial architecture. The San Francisco Convent is its crown jewel, and the historical building now houses a cultural center with fine pre-Columbian statues. Your guided visit showcases some of the most important displays and exhibits housed here.


    You will also have the opportunity to stroll Granada’s serene central plaza, a delightful shopping area famed for its arts and crafts, before it’s time to re-board your coach and transfer back to the pier.

    Explore the colorful marine life living off one of Grand Turk’s most beautiful beaches by learning to SNUBA, an exceptionally fun recreational watersport that is a cross between scuba and snorkeling. Upon reaching the beach, you will receive a brief introduction to SNUBA, which will give you the freedom to dive to depths of up to 20 feet. Unlike traditional diving, SNUBA uses an air supply that floats on the water’s surface. You simply breathe through the long tube that connects it to you. There is no telling what you will see as the crystal-clear waters are home to parrotfish, trumpetfish, tangs and grunts. You might even see green sea turtles and hawksbills, a turtle named for the shape of its head, which tapers to a point that resembles a raptor’s beak. After the SNUBA outing, you will have time to swim, sunbathe and walk along the coast, taking in the beauty of the setting.

    Take a one-of-a-kind historical journey through the Panama Canal by watching an IMAX film in 3D that shows how this engineering wonder of the world was created and how it operates today. “Panama Canal—A Land Divided, a World United” is a documentary that clearly explains the complexities and challenges of the canal, past and present. Through extraordinary shots from the air, historical re-creations and up-close views of massive ships passing through the system of locks, you will gain a deeper understanding of the manmade waterway and the ingenuity behind the locks. As incredible as it may seem, it is all done by gravity, without a single water pump. The sheer force of the rising water can lift a 70,000-ton cargo ship three stories high in a mere 10 minutes, allowing it to pass through the canal.
