Bridgetown: Barbados Island Tour with Airport Transfer
Your tour will begin with a leisurely drive along the Gold Coast, home to many wealthy residents, and will take you to the stunning area of Bathsheba.  This is where the Atlantic surf pounds the coastline and it is a famous spot for international and local surfing competitions.  A walk on the beach is a must. Heading into the hills, you will arrive at St. John’s Church. There are stunning views from the churchyard - a perfect photo opportunity.  The church contains an interesting sculpture depicting the Madonna and Child with the infant St. John. The graveyard contains the tomb of Ferdinand Paleologus, a descendant of the Byzantine Imperial family. The present building was constructed in 1836, and the pulpit is constructed from six different kinds of wood: ebony, locust, Barbados mahogany, manchineel, oak and pine. Through sleepy country villages and sugar cane fields,  you will make your way to Sunbury House dating back to 1650. The house was destroyed by fire in 1995, and was gracefully restored and re-opened in 1996. It possesses one of the country's superior collections of antiques. The cellar houses a unique collection of antique carriages, the largest collection in the Caribbean, as well as many items used in the domestic life of the plantation. It also houses a very old collection of optical machinery and sight testing equipment, some of the first to come to the West Indies including the first lens grinding plant.  Enjoy a light deli-style lunch with a complimentary rum or fruit punch.  A short drive will take you to the airport where you will be met and assisted with your luggage and airline check-in.

Please note: There are about 20 steps to climb at Sunbury House and 10 steps down to the cellar. This tour will end with a drop off at the Grantley Adams International Airport or the Accra Beach Hotel.

The cellar houses a unique collection of antique carriages, the largest collection in the Caribbean, as well as many items used in the domestic life of the plantation.

Cartagena: Old City by Horse Carriage
Transfer by coach to Plaza Santa Teresa where your horse and carriage stand ready to transport you around Cartagena’s beautiful Old Town—back in time to the days of the conquistadors. You’ll ride along the inviting, narrow cobblestone streets and through squares inside the walled city, admiring the flower-filled balconies that glow in the light spilling from colonial mansions. Stop for 10 minutes to photograph the Fort of San Felipe de Barajas, a 17th century construction acknowledged to be the most important work of Spanish Military engineering in Latin America. Surrender to the majesty of this historic city, where age-old squares are surrounded by towering colonial, Republican and Spanish-style buildings—it’s easy to picture life 200 years ago in this wealthy and cosmopolitan city. Visit the former city dungeons at Las Bovedas, which have also been used as military barracks, a munitions depot and a jail, but today local artisans display their work there. You’ll have 15 – 20 minutes for shopping before returning to the ship.

Please note: Guests who wish to remain in town to shop can return to the ship on their own later in the day.

Colon: Embera Village & Gatun Lake Expansion Visitor Center & Transfer
You will head to the Gatun Expansion Center, where you will take a tour and see history being rewritten all over again at the Panama Canal with its expanded capacity to allow for more than double the traffic, with the third set of locks, larger and wider than the existing ones. The Panama Canal has played an integral part in history as it provides travel between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans without having to sail a greater distance and through perilous Cape Horn. After this tour you will head to Buena Vista. There you will board a small dugout, which will carry you up the Gatun River to discover a large, fascinating and dense jungle.  You will arrive at the Embera Quera, an indigenous community found on the banks of Gatun Lake, near the Panama Canal. The Embera tribe still lives in harmony with Mother Nature. They will welcome you at the pier and gladly give you an idea of how they still live today. The village chief will give you a brief explication on the history of the tribe, its traditions, cultures, beliefs and handicrafts. Then, a traditional lunch of fish and plantains prepared by the Embera women will be served to you. In the afternoon you will watch a traditional Embera dance and also have a chance to shop for colorful handicrafts. The sale of local products directly benefits the village and helps to pay the school fees for the children. You can also get a temporary Embera tattoo painted on your arm or leg, using an ink made from a local fruit. 

Please note: This tour is not recommended for those with mobility issues.  Wear comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat.
