Ports

Cozumel is a Mexican island on the Caribbean Sea, famous for the underwater landscapes, very popular among divers and snorkelling lovers. Cozumel Pearl Farm, Palancar Reef or Santa Rosa Wall are just some of many underwater attractions. If you prefer to stay on dry land though, the island has a lot to offer you as well. Discover Mexico Cozumel Park, visit the Punta Celerain Lighthouse and explore San Gervasio Mayan Archaeological Site for unforgettable experiences.

Havana is a place where time seems to have stopped, a country for a long time closed to the public because of many political tensions. Architecture has been preserved from the ravages of modernism, colors, faded with time, are evidence of the splendor of the Spanish imprint. La Habana Vieja is a UNESCO heritage site. Discover the place that inspired Hemingway, ride a taxi particular and listen to the omnipresent music to submerge yourself in the unique Cuban atmosphere.
