My sister and I are cruising on the Sun Princess. We start in Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica. We then sail to Puntarenas, Costa Rica, at sea, Panama Canal, Cartagena, Columbia, Aruba,at sea, Barbados, Dominica, St. Thomas, and finally San Juan. We are familiar with most of the carribean islands except Dominica. Any suggestions for this port for shore excursions? Also should we just stay on the ship while in Costa Rica and Columbia? Any ideas of what we can do here? Thank you for your help.
At Puntenaras, we took the river Rafting tour which included lunch. If there are 2 departure times choose the later, as you will have lunch first. You must wait for the 1st group to leave the rafts and the first group were starving when we passed them on the shore. This was a lot of fun and the food was great. Although I have not been to Dominica, I understand the only site to see is the Falls. The island is mountainous with little beach area, but it is a beautiful tropical island.
