Quepos: Mangrove Wildlife & Boat Cruise
A boat ride through the mangroves is like visiting another world.  The species of trees that grow in the mixed waters of the ocean and the river make a unique and very fragile ecosystem.  Most of these trees grow along the estuary, developing an aerial root system. As the tide goes down the roots become suspended in the air creating a perfect home for crabs and caimans. In the upper part of the forest you will see monkeys and a great variety of birds including herons, egrets, and spoonbills. The launch will take you to a private property for refreshments as your naturalist tour guide gives you more information about this amazing ecosystem. Your shaded boat will then take you deep into the mangroves, where you will try to spot all the incredible wildlife making their home there.  After a 2- hour boat ride you will arrive at the village where transportation will be waiting to drive you back to the ship.  An optional drop off in Quepos is also available, where you will find several restaurants and shops.

Bridgetown: Beautiful Barbados
Prepare to embark on a journey that will take you to some of Barbados’s most beautiful and important historical sites. Journey through the rolling hills of the countryside on a 30-minute drive to Gun Hill Signal Station with a magnificent and captivating view of the island!  Built in 1818, the signal station was beautifully restored and landscaped by the Barbados National Trust and now houses a collection of military memorabilia. An officer at the signal station carved the statue of the lion on the hillside below, out of a single piece of rock in 1868. Continue to St. John's Parish Church, perched on a cliff, 800 feet above sea level, overlooking coastal St. John and the Atlantic Ocean. The present building was constructed in 1836, after the hurricane of 1831 destroyed the one built in 1660. The pulpit is constructed from six different kinds of wood: ebony, locust, Barbados mahogany, manchineel, oak and pine. The church also contains an interesting sculpture depicting the Madonna and Child with the infant St. John. The graveyard contains the tomb of Ferdinand Paleologus, a descendent of the Byzantine Imperial family, who died in Barbados in 1678 after being a resident for over 20 years. Located near the center of the island, Highland Adventure Centre sits in the parish of St. Thomas, at an elevation of more than 1,000 feet above sea level. From here the view of the East Coast is truly breathtaking! The pounding Atlantic surf in the distance, contrasts with the unspoiled beauty of nearby Mount Hillaby, which at 1,138 feet above sea level, is the highest point on the island. You get the feeling that you're sitting on top of the world.  Your tour returns to the port by heading westwards, across the northern part of the island, to Holetown, where a monument commemorates the landing in 1605 of the first British settlers, who claimed the island ‘in the name of James I of England.’ Continuing southwards, you will drive along the West Coast, where the clear sea gently kisses some of the best beaches in the Caribbean and many of the ‘rich and famous’ have their ‘getaways.’ This section of the island is often referred to as the ‘Gold Coast,’ because of the number of very wealthy people who have come to live here over the years. It also boasts some of the finest hotels and restaurants.

Heading into the hills, you will arrive at St. John’s Church. There are stunning views from the churchyard   - a perfect photo opportunity.  The church contains an interesting sculpture depicting the Madonna and Child with the infant St. John. The graveyard contains the tomb of Ferdinand Paleologus, a descendant of the Byzantine Imperial family.  The present building was constructed in 1836, and the pulpit is constructed from six different kinds of wood: ebony, locust, Barbados mahogany, manchineel, oak and pine. Through sleepy country villages and sugar cane fields, you will make your way to Sunbury House dating back to 1650. The house was destroyed by fire in 1995, and was gracefully restored and re-opened in 1996. It possesses one of the country's superior collections of antiques. The cellar houses a unique collection of antique carriages, the largest collection in the Caribbean, as well as many items used in the domestic life of the plantation. It also houses a very old collection of optical machinery and sight testing equipment, some of the first to come to the West Indies including the first lens grinding plant.  Enjoy a light deli-style lunch with a complimentary rum or fruit punch.  A short drive will take you to your Windstar Hotel.

Please note: There are about 20 steps to climb at Sunbury House and 10 steps down to the cellar.

Bridgetown: Beautiful Barbados
Prepare to embark on a journey that will take you to some of Barbados’s most beautiful and important historical sites. Journey through the rolling hills of the countryside on a 30-minute drive to Gun Hill Signal Station with a magnificent and captivating view of the island!  Built in 1818, the signal station was beautifully restored and landscaped by the Barbados National Trust and now houses a collection of military memorabilia. An officer at the signal station carved the statue of the lion on the hillside below, out of a single piece of rock in 1868. Continue to St. John's Parish Church, perched on a cliff, 800 feet above sea level, overlooking coastal St. John and the Atlantic Ocean. The present building was constructed in 1836, after the hurricane of 1831 destroyed the one built in 1660. The pulpit is constructed from six different kinds of wood: ebony, locust, Barbados mahogany, manchineel, oak and pine. The church also contains an interesting sculpture depicting the Madonna and Child with the infant St. John. The graveyard contains the tomb of Ferdinand Paleologus, a descendent of the Byzantine Imperial family, who died in Barbados in 1678 after being a resident for over 20 years. Located near the center of the island, Highland Adventure Centre sits in the parish of St. Thomas, at an elevation of more than 1,000 feet above sea level. From here the view of the East Coast is truly breathtaking! The pounding Atlantic surf in the distance, contrasts with the unspoiled beauty of nearby Mount Hillaby, which at 1,138 feet above sea level, is the highest point on the island. You get the feeling that you're sitting on top of the world.  Your tour returns to the port by heading westwards, across the northern part of the island, to Holetown, where a monument commemorates the landing in 1605 of the first British settlers, who claimed the island ‘in the name of James I of England.’ Continuing southwards, you will drive along the West Coast, where the clear sea gently kisses some of the best beaches in the Caribbean and many of the ‘rich and famous’ have their ‘getaways.’ This section of the island is often referred to as the ‘Gold Coast,’ because of the number of very wealthy people who have come to live here over the years. It also boasts some of the finest hotels and restaurants.

Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes. Rum or fruit punch will be served at the Highland Centre
