Originally the lair of pirates and buccaneers, the Caymans are a Caribbean paradise of white-sand beaches, coral gardens, and offshore waters harboring spectacular shipwrecks. Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman also boast the highest standard of living in the entire Caribbean.

July 17. Roatan, Hondurus. Roatan, the largest of the Bay Islands of Honduras, is noted for its pristine coral reefs, beautiful beaches, lush tropical foliage, and friendly people.

The island has a mountainous backbone that provides excellent hiking opportunities, panoramas and lush scenery.
July 18. Belize City, Belize. Located at the base of the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize offers travelers a wealth of attractions. The country’s dense rain forest is dotted with Mayan ruins. The forest is also home to a wide range of tropical wildlife, ranging from jaguars and ocelots to keel-boated macaws and howler monkeys. Offshore, the world’s second largest barrier reef offers some of the finest diving in the world. And Belize’s easygoing ways, a legacy of its past as a British colony, feels far more akin to a small Caribbean island than a Central American republic.
July 19. Cozumel, Mexico. Enjoy a special dance-themed morning excursion with Tony. The afternoon is at leisure for additional exploration. Mayan myth claims that Cozumel was home to the gods.
