ZueAnderson65 - I would love to hear what you did in Nicaragua and Guatemala. We are total beach/boat people and I have not been having much success. My hope was Isla Tortuga near Puntarenas Costa Rica. However, seems like the timing won't work. Help?

We did HA excursions on our Panama Canal cruise last year.  Safety is a concern for us in some of the countries that have political problems or have had them in the past.  We did the horse farm tour in Nicaragua and it was the best excursion we have ever done.   It was a short trip from the industrial port and was a hands on opportunity to see some of the most beautiful horses we have ever seen.  We expressed interest in the Gypsy Vanner horses that they used in their carriage presentation and the trainer took another stallion from his stall to see him close up.   We did the Pura Vida Gardens trip in Costa Rica.  We had an excellent guide as we rode up the mountain to the gardens.   The gardens are a strenuous activity IMO.   They were not listed as such.  There was a great deal of up and down climbing on concrete paths.   It was very hot also but worth doing the work to see the gardens.   Beautiful tropical flowers, butterflies and Macaws.   The waterfall advertised as a highlight was kind of meh.  We opted just to hit the bar right off the ship in Guatemala.  All this being said we are horse nuts and gardening nuts.
