Colón, one of the first destinations of this cruise, is surrounded by some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, including Palenque or Langosta. In addition to these natural areas, tourism in Colón is cantered on the Fort of San Lorenzo and the Panama Canal, a huge wonder of civil engineering located just a few kilometres distance from this town. After leaving Colón, this Antilles and South Caribbean Cruise takes you to Cartagena de Indias, the city where some of the most unique Colombian monuments are located. The most important is undoubtedly the Walled City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
As you walk through its streets, you will come across numerous examples of Colombian colonial architecture or, more specifically, the important Church and Convent of San Pedro Claver. Afterwards we will arrive in Curaçao, an island region of the Netherlands, whose capital, Willemstad, boasts outstanding examples of Curaçao's colonial architecture, including Pietermaai Cathedral.
Our tour of some of the Netherland's overseas territories does not end in Curaçao, as our next stop is Bonaire, which is also part of that European country. Bonaire stands out due to its natural charms: Lac Bay or Lake Goto are Caribbean wonders. Like Bonaire, Aruba is also a Dutch territory, and it also features unique Caribbean landscapes, amongst them idyllic Palm Beach. However, Aruba differs from Bonaire in that its capital, Oranjestad, is replete with Dutch colonial architecture. Once you leave Aruba, the cruise heads to Colon and Cartagena de Indias, where you voyage will conclude, depending on which of the two cities was your port of embarkation for the Antilles and South Caribbean Cruise.
