Hipster guide to Cozumel, Mexico

Hipster guide to Cozumel, Mexico

Mexico, land of taco’s and Tequila, was the very last stop before our ship returned to Miami. I hadn’t read up on the city and from what I knew it was a shopping place for tourists. Playa del Carmen and Tulum aren’t far off, so I was expecting Cozumel to be buzzing with people. In reality, Cozumel was the most peaceful and calm place we visited and quite possibly the most colorful too. Let’s take a tour! The cruise terminal was …

La Pura Vida in Puerto Limòn, Costa Rica

La Pura Vida in Puerto Limòn, Costa Rica

Puerto Limòn was one of my favorite stops during our MSC Cruise. Known as the land of Sloths, bananas and coffee I should have know even before docking into the port that this day was going to be a good one! “First things first!” we thought and we went off to explore the city center. It’s a very small town that you can easily cover on foot in just a few short hours. First we walked through the busy shopping streets and then …

We had docked in the port itself, next to a line of container ships. After breakfast we got on board of an excursion bus. …

The Colors of Cartagena, Colombia

Arrrr, welcome to Cartagena! When leaving the cruise terminal we were greeted by a rather feathery welcome committee. Apart from a dozen Ara’s there were a flock of flamingo’s and some devilishly looking predatory birds in what seemed to be a mini zoo. It was a little strange, but a lot of fun to be welcomed into the city this way! As colorful as the animals were, so was the city! We walked from the terminal to the Old Town so we could …

A Day At Dunn’s River Falls in Ochos Rios

A Day At Dunn’s River Falls in Ochos Rios

Jamaica was the first of the 5 stops of our cruise through the Caribbean sea. I knew little about the country, but rumors were that it’s one of the world’s top destinations for beach weddings. I’m not the beach-y type, but I must admit that I was curious to learn why everybody seems to love the white sands, clear blue waters, palmtrees and dolphins so much. Yes my friends, there were dolphins! As the ship came sailing in, everyone stood out on the …
