In the past few years, swanky new hotels and sleek condos have been added to round out this vacation destination.

Puerto Quetzal, on the Pacific coast of Guatemala, gives access to Guatemala City, the capital, beaches and some significant historical sites. Magnificent buildings of the colonial period remain at Antigua, the colonial capital, located near Guatemala City. Guatemala was the center of the old Mayan civilization, and many sites from the classic Mayan period (3rd-10th century AD) have been excavated and studied. The largest of these is Tikal in the northern lowlands, where some 3,000 structures, including tall temple pyramids as well as plazas and monuments, cover an area of about 6 sq miles. Thought to have sustained a population of 50,000 at its peak, it was abandoned for unknown reasons at the end of the 10th century.

Founded in 1523 Granada was raided by pirates from the Caribbean many times in the 17th century and William Walker sacked and burned the city in 1857. Granada is typically Spanish in appearance and features many fine mansions and massive ornate churches.

Panama Canal
8/21/2018
8/21/2018

Linking the Atlantic to the Pacific, the Panama Canal provides one of cruising's most unforgettable experiences. Over 10 years were needed to complete the canal's 51 miles in 1914 - so avoiding the lengthy and often dangerous voyage around Cape Horn. 'The Big Ditch' lifts vessels by a fascinating feat of mechanics aided by on-shore 'mule' locomotives through three great locks, traversing man-made lakes, channels blasted through rock, and the dense jungle. Two other special highlights of the canal are Gatun Lake and the Gaillard cut. Gatun Lake is one of the world's largest man-made lakes covering 163 square miles. Gaillard Cut is an 8 mile channel built through solid rock which was the most difficult excavation in the canal construction.

Bimini, the Gateway to the Bahamas, is a tiny island set amidst a magnificent blue sea. Bordered by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream and by the Great Bahama Bank, Bimini has traditionally been referred to as the big game fishing capital of the world. Discovered by Ponce de Leon in 1512 while searching for the fountain of youth, Bimini has long remained a
popular destination for adventurers of all types. Pirates and rum runners took refuge here. Ernest Hemmingway made it a favorite retreat in the 1930's. Thousands more have come to catch prized gamefish, explore the undersea world or simply do nothing at all. Alice Town is at the center of most of Bimini's activity. Everything is close so walking is the usual method of getting place to place. Restaurants specialize in local seafood and other dishes. Shopping consists of duty free liquors and perfume, native artwork, and a Bahamian straw market featuring a wide variety of souveniers. Several bars and night
spots complete with island music provide upbeat nightlife.

New York City is a captivating, awesome, and glamorous empire. There are countless museums, theaters, restaurants, parks and towering skyscrapers. It is a shopping capital of the world. In midtown Manhattan are most of the designer boutiques; Fifth and Madison Avenues are locations of such world-renowned department stores as Bergdorf Goodman, Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue. FAO Schwartz is one of the largest toy stores in the world. New York is also a world-class culinary experience - with pockets of ethnic restaurants: Chinatown, Little Italy, Little India and Little Brazil. The famous Statue of Liberty sculpture symbolizing the American Dream can be reached by ferry from Battery Park. Once the first stop for over 12 million immigrants, Ellis Island now houses the Museum of Immigration, including the American Immigrant Wall of Honor. The Art Deco Empire State Building is one of the world's best-loved skyscrapers with two observation decks.
