Day 3 Aruba, Dutch Caribbean

Aruba is one of the three ABC islands in the southern Caribbean and a popular port of call for cruise ships from Miami, Florida. Aruba, a Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela, is an extremely safe tourist paradise, filled with glistening white sand beaches and countless entertainment options. Aruba also has a unique climate, combining the Caribbean tropics with a beautiful desert landscape. The Aruba travel season from Miami, Florida, lasts all year since the weather stays consistently warm. The best way to maximize your happy memories on the One Happy Island is to spend some time researching the sights and attractions or try some adventurous activities and entertainment.

Day 4 Curacao, Dutch Caribbean

Curacao cruises put you in the center of the Southern Caribbean's action. The vibrantly colored island of Curacao, located some 37 miles north of the coast of Venezuela, is part of the ABC chain of islands, which also includes Aruba and Bonaire. Curacao has two main docking spots: the new Curacao Mega Pier (West Willemstad) and the Curacao Cruise Terminal (Mathey Wharf). Willemstad, often called the Amsterdam of the Caribbean, is the capital and main cruise port on the island of Curacao. It is like an old-world European metropolis that was dumped into the Caribbean. You can take a slow walk through the historic district and port, relax on Mambo Beach, or go to one of the city's many museums to learn about the area's rich cultural history.

Day 5 Bonaire, Dutch Caribbean

Bonaire, the westernmost of the Lesser Antilles, is an island and special municipality of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in the Caribbean. Although Bonaire is the least well-known of the three major islands that make up the Dutch Caribbean ABC (Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao), it is known across the world as a scuba diver's paradise. Bonaire's capital is Kralendijk. Kralendijk is a great starting point for exploring the natural attractions of Bonaire. Due to Kralendijk's small size, the entire town grid may be traversed on foot. You'll find interesting places, including cafes, restaurants, pubs, public spaces, and art galleries. Booking an island tour or participating in outdoor pursuits like scuba diving, snorkeling, or mountain biking may allow you to see even more during your time in port.

Day 6 Santa Marta, Colombia

Santa Marta is the capital of the department of Magdalena and the fourth-largest urban city in the Caribbean Region of Colombia. The city is located on the shores of the Bay of Santa Marta on the Caribbean Sea, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, whose peaks can be seen on clear days from the beach. Santa Marta's beach captivates with activities and culture, among other options. Here visitors always find something to do: diving, adventure sports, visiting beaches where the rainforest meets the sea, bird watching, a historic city tour, and a visit to the heart of the Tayrona culture.

Day 7 Cartagena, Colombia

Originally called "Cartagena de Indias," Cartagena is one of the oldest cities in Colombia and an important port for the country. The port is a frequent stop for cruise ships in the southern Caribbean, especially those making the transit through the Panama Canal. What makes Cartagena so amazing is the sum of its many wonderful parts: its colonial, republican, and modern architecture; the allure of its lively nightlife; its cultural festivals; its exuberant landscapes; its magnificent beaches; its outstanding gastronomic offerings; and its significant hotel and tourism infrastructure. The city is like a colonial treasure trove available to the public, but it has much more to offer than just history and culture. The Old Town of Cartagena is a Unesco World Heritage Site, and it is a labyrinth of cobbled streets, balconies draped with bougainvillea, and massive churches whose shadows fall across plazas of lush vegetation.

Day 8 Panama Canal, Panama

The Panama Canal is a lock-type canal, owned and administered by the Republic of Panama, that connects the Atlantic and Pacific oceans through the narrow Isthmus of Panama. The length of the Panama Canal from shoreline to shoreline is about 40 miles, and from deep water in the Atlantic to deep water in the Pacific, about 50 miles. The canal, which was completed in August 1914, is one of the two most strategically important artificial waterways in the world.

Day 9 Colon, Panama

Cristobal is a port town and county in Colon District, Colon Province, Panama. It is located on the western edge of Manzanillo Island, on the Atlantic side of the Panama Canal. Cristobal area landmarks like the Hotel Washington, Christ Church by the Sea, and St. Mary's Academy's Church of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal are very well preserved and may be of interest to visitors.

Day 10 Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

Puerto Limon is the biggest city on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast and the capital of Limon Province. A significant landmark of Limon is Parque Vargas, a waterfront park bordered by the sea wall. The port city has one notable museum, the Museo Etnohistorico de Limon, with cultural and historical exhibits relating to the local area. There is also the central market, full of souvenirs and local crafts. Puerto Limon is a good base for adventurous urban explorers.
