Medicinal Plants

Chanca piedra is an herb that is used by the older folks back in the day, and still today. “The whole plant is used to make medicine. Chanca piedra is most commonly used by mouth for various disorders of the urinary tract, digestive tract, and liver, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these or other uses.”  -  webmd.com

The General Tour offers the best value because it is designed to be a composite of several diverse tours and lots of history. We recount history in creative ways.

These tours can be utilized as a field trip for school groups, from middle school to collegiate levels. Informative and educational, this is an excellent tour for families or individuals who love the rich stories of pirates in the Caribbean.
