Although you are able to get very close to these gentle giants; swimming, snorkeling or diving are restricted while the manatees are present. While visiting the park we witnessed around 10 or more manatees wading in the hot springs. The park entrance fee was only $3.

This Spring, I visited Havana, Cuba with Jakera. During my stay I lived, learned, ate and interacted with many of the locals.
My program provided lodging, meals, Spanish classes and local activities. I stayed in a Casa Particular with a very friendly host family, who all happened to be named Patricia - grandmother, mother and daughter.
Every morning at the Jakera house, we had homemade Cuban breakfast prepared for us. Breakfast was followed by a three-hour interactive Spanish class and then we had a home cooked lunch. During class we walked around the city, visited museums and even the beach. It was a truly magical experience!

There are many activities in Abu Dhabi. deciding which ones to do, where to go and how to get there, is a little tricky. Your best bet, is getting a 48 hour Big Bus ticket.

With the 48 hour ticket, you could probably finish the entire tour in that amount of time. But if you're limited for time, I would recommend: Observation Deck 300 in the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers With your Big Bus ticket it costs $10USD. The views are incredible from the 75th floor. It's the highest public viewing area in the city.
