Larry Cohen is ranked in the Top 10 Living Most Influential Bridge Personalities and in 2011 he was named ACBL Honorary Member of the Year. He has been dedicated to the game since earning his Life Master rating at 17. He won the National Open Pairs in 2009 and 26 national championships in total. Larry finds teaching and writing just as important as competing: he is author of numerous articles, best-selling bridge books and CDs (To Bid or Not to Bid, Following the LAW, and more) and lectures worldwide.
Larry adds humor to his popular lectures. His illuminating seminars cover a wide variety of topics—bidding, declarer play, and defense—and include practice deals based on each day’s lesson. Larry is the only bridge teacher who uses the new VuGraph presentation screen in his lectures, allowing his students to see the hands being played.
Dec. 21 - Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Arrive early and take advantage of the beautiful beach as well as the recently renovated Promenade with bars, restaurants, and shops. If you haven’t been there before, the Everglades is one of the most breathtaking natural areas in the country.
Dec. 22 - at sea
Dec 23 - George Town, Grand Cayman. Take a stroll along downtown’s palm-lined streets past pastel-hued houses to Cayman Islands National Museum, housed in one of the island’s oldest buildings and Fort George, built in the 1780’s by the British. Grand Cayman’s long public beach is its most popular attraction, and for good reason: no sybarite could find finer sands or more tranquil blue waters for shelling and snorkeling.
Dec. 24 - at sea
Dec. 25 - Cartagena, Columbia. The city was founded on June 1, 1533, and named after Cartagena, Spain. However, settlement in this region by various indigenous people dates back to 4000 BC. During the colonial period Cartagena served a key role in administration and expansion of the Spanish empire. In 1984 Cartagena’s colonial walled city and fortress were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Dec. 26 - Colon, Panama. About 50 miles northwest of Panama City, Colón is home to the northern gateway of the Panama Canal. Colón’s greatest claim to fame—and the main reason visitors come here—is the Colón Free Zone, a massive shopping showroom where wholesalers, retailers and the general public shop.
Dec. 27 - Puerto Limon, Costa Rica. If there was ever a country created for eco-tourism, it is Costa Rica. Effectively a biological corridor between North and South America and with its neo-tropical climate and rainforests acting as a sort of biosphere, it now has one of the greatest biological diversities in the world. Nearly a quarter of its landmass is designated as national parks and it houses 8,000 species of plants, 859 species of birds, 10% of the world’s butterflies and as many snakes as you could shake a stick at. Take a rainforest aerial tram ride, visit the sloth sanctuary...there are many exciting options for exploring this natural wonderland.
Dec. 28 - at sea
Dec. 29 - Belize City, Belize. Belize City has no natural sandy stretches but the man-made beach, five miles outside of town, is worth a visit. Also, worthwhile, the Belize Zoo featuring native species (pumas, tapirs, kinkajous). Learn about Mayan history in Old Belize.
Dec. 30 - Costa Maya, Mexico. Costa Maya is just a short sail from the activity in Cozumel, but it's light years away from your typical resort. It is a gateway to a treasure trove of Mayan ruins, ancient forts, and villages nestled in a lagoon-laced landscape.
Dec. 31 - Cozumel, Mexico. The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. The waters around Cozumel’s sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.
Jan. 1 - at sea
Jan. 2 - disembark Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
