Stick with the ships excursions in Costa Rica. I read a review from a guy, that took a taxi around the island. On the way back the taxi broke down, so the driver called his back-up. The other driver showed then the 2 cab drivers got into an a huge fight. The 2nd taxi driver left, and the first one walked off and left the pax stranded. At the time time happened they had 2.5 HOURS before all pax were due aboard. They were able to flag someone down FINALLY, BUT they missed the ship! That is not the worst part. Their passports money and jewelry were aboard the ship. They had to call their kids to wire them money, go to the embassy, prove who they were, etc. It took them (4) days to get out of there. Then when the ship arrived they had their in room safe opened and the contents shipped to them since they were in another state instead of Florida. Most of their MONEY, and all of the expensive items of jewerly were missing. This was a Celebrity cruise, and they wrote Celebrity telling them what had happened. They basically said, Sorry, too bad, we are not responsible for your lost articles.
