Cozumel Carnival Legend Excursion

Imagine going to 4 great birding locations in Central America without flying - that's with guides and local transportation. That's exactly the description of the TAS Caribbean Cruise in the spring of 2014 with "Carefree Birding". "Cruise Memories" is a photo-journey that recaps our adventure to Cozumel, Belize, Roatan, and Grand Cayman. The presentation will concentrate on the exotic birds we saw plus some plants and animals for some colorful spice. We welcome you to share our "Cruise Memories".
