After a thrilling day in the wilderness its time to hit civilisation again and the sun-drenched beaches of Naples on the Gulf of Mexico. During your 4 nights here do as much or as little as you like. We recommend sunset walks along the 7 miles of pristine sandy beaches, a round of golf at one of the many championship courses, joining the locals on the Pier to try a spot of fishing or just enjoy a cool beer and lively conversation. There's the Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens or sea canoeing for the kids.
