Caribbean Excursions and Tours

We went looking for the best Caribbean excursions and tours that were unique to the region, affordable, popular and downright fun. All of them are family friendly -- except for swimming with barracuda.

Puntarenas Excursions

Puntarenas beachThousands of tourists visit Puntarenas every year to experience some great excursions.

Canopy Over Rain Forests

Our Costa Rica canopy tour started with the first terrifying jump nearly 100 feet in the air. We were not in Virginia any more.

Swimming with Barracuda

Swimming with barracuda can be done in the office or in St. Thomas. They bite in both places, but the barracuda in the Caribbean have much bigger teeth.

ATV Tour

An ATV ride on St. Lucia ranks among the most fun and beautiful excursions in the Caribbean. Be prepared to get muddy -- from head to toe.

Tortuguero National Park

Tortuguero National Park is one of the top ecotourism destinations in Costa Rica.

Dive into Volcanic Mud

A St. Lucia mud bath may not make you look any younger, but it is good clean fun.
