Oranjestad to Cozumel
Start off with a splash in Aruba at some of the Caribbean’s best beaches. Then it’s off to Colombia for romantic Santa Marta’s museums full of pre-Colombian gold and Cartagena’s 400-year-old walls with stories to tell. Relax at sea en route to Bocas del Toro and soak up the laidback atmosphere full of colorful clapboard houses. Hop over to Costa Rica’s Puerto Moin to sample cashews and access amazing national parks. Once in Colón, head to the jungle to meet Embera Indians or take an aerial tram ride through the rainforest canopy.  On Isla San Andres, swim with puffer fish and sea turtles at the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Enjoy a day at sea before snorkeling, kayaking or swimming with dolphins in the ocean playground of Roatan and don’t forget to sample baleadas and pastilles with delicious Honduran coffee. In Belize City, visit the howler monkey sanctuary then travel north to Costa Maya to explore the ancient Mayan ruins of Chacchoben. Appreciate the 600-mile-long Mesoamerican reef one more time in Cozumel by adventuring into Chankanaab, an eco-park with underwater caverns home to dolphins, manatees and sea turtles.

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: Cartagena
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
