Oranjestad to Colón
Bougainvillea-covered balconies, jungles teeming with wildlife ... there’s more treasure here than the Spanish ever dreamed of. Step back in time to Spain’s colonial heyday in Cartagena and Santa Marta, where museums glitter with pre-Colombian gold and jewelers display fresh-from-the-mine emeralds. Join the birds in the rainforest canopy and caimans in thick mangroves. Dine alfresco beneath a colony of stars and toast the perfect antidote to winter.

Day 1: Oranjestad
Known for having some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, this Dutch port makes it easy to just … take it easy. Walk through town to choose your favorite carved wooden door, or spend the day like the Arubans do playing dominos at a beachside table.

Day 3: Santa Marta
Romantic Santa Marta has it all: history (Colombia’s oldest city), natural beauty (from gentle bays and beaches to the highest coastal mountain range in the world), and its very own celebrity. Simon Bolivar  (“The Liberator”) is known as the George Washington of South America, and this was his Mount Vernon. Visit his beautiful estate or head to one of  the two UNESCO Biosphere Reserves nearby.

Day 4: Cartegena
Welcome to the sparkling city of Cartagena, where the gold and jewels of the Spanish Main awaited shipment across the Atlantic. No pirate could resist, nor will you be able to when you visit this historic city. The Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is surrounded by 400-year-old walls and contains a plethora of churches, fortresses, and restored colonial mansions. Outside the walls are more treasures: Climb the massive Castillo de San Felipe to investigate its maze of hidden tunnels, or shop for the perfect emerald.

Day 6: Bocas del Toro
Bocas del Toro on Bastimentos island was visited by Columbus in 1502 and then built up with colorful and Caribbean-style clapboard houses by the United Fruit Company in the early 20th century.   Situated on the beautiful Bocas del Toro archipelago, the laid-back and friendly community is a great combination of races and ethnicities living harmoniously. West Indians, Latinos and Extraneros (the resident gringos) make this an easy place to feel right at home and embrace the relaxed Caribbean vibe of the town. Not far from town is the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, as well as two national parks, La Amistad and many banana plantations. We will anchor at Red Frog Marina, considered to have the finest beaches of Panama.

Day 7: Puerto Limón/Moin
As the most important port of Costa Rica, Puerto Limon has a long history dating back to when Columbus landed here in 1502. Used initially for exporting bananas and grains, Puerto Limon is now more famous for its cashews and its unique architecture. This area is well known also for it amazing national parks, pristine beaches and fun surf. Parque Vargas offers an impressive view over the Atlantic and Veragua Rainforest Park includes the largest indoor nocturnal frog exhibit.
