"Leaving Out of Port Miami and Sailing to"
Key West, Florida
The southernmost point in the United States, Key West is famous for watersports, lively nightlife, beaches and historic sites. Don't miss Duval Street, one of the most energetic strips of shops, bars and cafes in all the land. Did we mention Sloppy Joe's novelist Ernest Hemingway?
And, for the more sober minded, the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum (look for the celebrated six-toed cats). Indeed, walking tours of Key West are the best way to see the island's intriguing architecture, courtyards and gardens. Start in the center of town at the Key West City Cemetery.
Cozumel is proof that Mexico can do 'island favor' with the best of the Caribbean.
Cozumel offers a huge variety of things to do, see, taste and explore. This island just happens to be perched atop a coral reef. We will make a positive impact by visiting San Miguel Village to meet with Mayan descendants, learn about age-old traditions and help the local community by participating on the Give Back with Purpose Community Tour! We will visit a local church, San Pedro y San Pablo, to meet the guardians of this place of worship. Then we will visit the highlights of the tour. We will visit an orphanage and meet the amazing people who work there and learn how our visit supports their efforts.
Finally we will go to a local market to discover the home-grown flavors and culinary traditions of the Mayan community. We will enjoy a delicious Mexican lunch at a local restaurant. Going to a new place has the power to change you and this will leave a memorable impression.
