We cruised with NCL to Santo Tomas in 2006 and it was probably our favorite stop. Even though there wasn't much at the pier. It was a bit scary looking when we arrived... men with rifles at the gate. We loved our excursion. We took a bus trip to the Quirigua ruins which are not as impressive as the pyramids in Mexico but were very interesting. There was a cute little market outside and we did alot of souvenir shopping there and at the small building at the pier. I'm not sure about walking around at the pier but the scenery was beutiful on our drive to the ruins and our tour guide was very knowlegeable. The people lined up all the taxis on the pier and honked, sang and flshed their lights as we left port. I dont' know if that's the norm but it was pretty neat to see as we were eating dinner.
