Isla San Andres, San Andres Island Exploration
Your San Andres Island will show you “El Hoyo Soplador” (Blowing Hole). This is a natural phenomenon, (it is the islanders’ pride and joy), which is very much dependent on sea conditions. It is produced by a series of subterranean tunnels and crevices in the coral reefs that meet and come together just a few meters from shore. At high tide when a wave comes in through the tunnels with sufficient force, the compressed air in the tunnels comes rushing out the hole and natives exclaim, “hush, the hole’s blowing.’’  Experience a traditional island neighborhood in the San Luis area, a big tourist attraction with beautiful white sandy beaches that contrast magnificently with the blue and green Caribbean’s ocean colors.  Head to La Loma and visit the oldest Baptist church in the Americas and the most representative monument on the Island.  It was built with pinewood, brought all the way from Alabama. The church dates back to 1846 and the chapel was built in 1896. Many Baptist from around the world have come here to pay homage. And they say that inside the church a spiritual magic is felt that invites one to meditate.  On to Morgan’s Cave.  This part of the Tour will take you down to the famous labyrinth that opens onto an all but deserted beach.  The beach has remained almost undisturbed because it’s so hard to reach.  Local legend has it that pirates hid treasure within the cave.  This has yet to be proven. Finally visit the Coco Plum resort for a drink.

Belize City, Howler Monkey Sanctuary
Visit the Community Baboon Sanctuary, and be inspired by their success story in the protection of the Black Howler Monkeys (Baboons in Creole). Established in 1985, this baboon sanctuary was set up as a cooperative agreement among 12 local farmers and landowners in Bermudian Landing who voluntarily agreed to preserve the area’s black howler monkey habitat as a way to support the local economy by drawing in tourism and creating jobs. Today, CBS is more than just a wildlife conservation area. The program has become such a success that over 220 private landowners across seven Creole villages participate, and the entire community works to protect the forests and rivers. Years of grassroots conservation efforts are showing the results: the black howler population has grown from a couple of hundred to over 2,000 monkeys, and now their high numbers provide visitors with guaranteed sightings. The CBS is a wonderful place to experience the wonders of a Belizean Rainforest first hand. The visit will begin at the visitor's center, where a knowledgeable local guide will explain the project and then take the group for a small tour of the property where you can expect to experience Black Howler Monkeys firsthand, wonder at the majesty of the rainforest, and learn about traditional rainforest plants and medicine. Your tour will end with a delicious Belizean lunch near the Belize River.

St. Maarten: Soualiga Sky Explorer & Flying Dutchman
Board an air-conditioned vehicle for a 15-minute ride to Rockland Estate where this new thrill awaits you. As an adventure-seeker you will simply love this thrilling ride that will take you on the Soualiga Sky Explorer with the landscape unfolding below to the top of St. Maarten’s highest mountain. Then you’ll go flying back down on the world’s steepest zip lines.  After check-in and signing a waiver, the guests will first visit the Emilio Wilson Museum, which is located in the restored plantation house originally built in the 1700s. You will be on your own to browse the museum which tells the powerful story of Trace Wilson, who was born into slavery on the property in 1818 and her direct descendant Emilio Wilson. You will see depictions of what life was like on a Caribbean plantation and learn about the customs, traditions, lifestyle and stories that earned Sint Maarten the nickname ‘The Friendly Island.' Then take the Soualiga Sky Explorer up to Sentry Hill, which at 1,125 ft is the highest elevation on the Dutch side of the island (Sint Maarten). From here you will have a 360-degree spectacular view over the island, as well as over neighboring islands, Saba, St. Bart’s, St. Eustatius and Anguilla. This chair lift spans 2,997 ft, so enjoy your leisurely ride over the vegetation below. Once on the top of Sentry Hill, you will find platforms that give you the perfect vantage point for taking your photos and for enjoying the simply amazing view. Then you will descend on the Flying Dutchman, the fastest zip line in the world and quite a thrill. Harnessed into a chair, you will go on a ride that will afford a flight line drop of 1,050 ft in elevation, over 2,800 ft.  You will then have some free time to visit the gift shop to purchase a photo or a refreshment, until it is time to meet up with the group at the pre-determined time and location and return to the Port.

Please note: Bring sunscreen and insect repellent and wearing closed-toe and secured shoes is required. Currency accepted is US dollars or credit cards. All children must be accompanied by an adult and able to sit on their own. For the Flying Dutchman weight range is 100 - 275 pounds. Height range is 52 – 80 inches.

St. Maarten: Under Two Flags Island Tour
The best way to see the "friendly" island of St. Maarten/St. Martin, the smallest island shared between two nations, is to take the Under Two Flags Island Tour. You will depart Philipsburg Port and will be driven to beautiful Oyster Pond, to cross the border to the French side, and follow along Coralita Road to the first stop of your tour. There, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a picturesque lookout point over the impressive Atlantic coast and the islands of Tintamarre and St Bart’s. After a short stop, drive through Quartier d'Orléans, better known as French Quarter, past well known Orient Beach and Grand Case, culinary capital of the Caribbean, before arriving in Marigot, capital of the French side. Here you will have time to visit the outdoor seaside market, where among Caribbean souvenirs, local art work and hand-made jewelry, products from Provence, France, can also be found. The West Indies Mall with its French boutiques is just around the corner. Leaving Marigot behind, stop at Cay Hill Lookout Point for another photo op overlooking Simpson Bay Lagoon, one of the largest lagoons in the West Indies, and the blue waters of the Caribbean. Then, for the last stop, you will be dropped off in Philipsburg for some more shopping on Front Street or a nice stroll along the Boardwalk before returning to the Port.

Please note: This tour is not wheelchair accessible. Wear comfortable walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen and bring some cash.
