Default Panama Canal excursions

We will be on RCCL in a couple of weeks to the Panama Canal with the ports of Aruba, Grand Caymen and Costa Rica. What excursions should we not miss and which ones should we avoid?

Do not take a trip to San Jose...especially if your in Puntaranes...much too far.. and if your in Puntaranes....hire a taxi to take you to Sarchi...and ask the driver if there is a butterfly farm nearby.. Also in Punteranas... at the dock is a large flea market.. there are some nice ittle items there, especially the shirts decorated from the Kuna Indians...not the usual ones with just a mola in front..

Im going on the Grand tour with Carnival I have heard wonderful stuff about it and most people who go on seem to enjoy it. You go through some of the lock in a small boat meet the Umbria Indians who perform a dance, and learn about a vanishing culture and way of life. I think the other 7 hour Canal tour would be boring too much engineering stuff , though you never know I thought I would be bored at the Hoover Dam and ended it thinking it was really cool. I am also going to the Sloth Sanctuary in Limon Costa Rica you can hug a sloth and get your photo taken with one, you see up to 350 different species of animals in a protected setting. Will post my reviews when I return. Only 2 days till I cruise!!!

Last visit to Costa Rica we did the White Water Rafting. One of the most fun excursions we've done on a cruise.
