Colón is the first destination on Pullmantur's Antilles and South Caribbean cruise. Here you can relax on some of Panama's most unique beaches, like the ones in Palenque or Langosta. While here, check out the nearby Panama Canal and the Fort of San Lorenzo, one of the oldest castles in America. After Colón our Pullmantur cruise docks in Cartagena de Indias, the most prominent tourist town in Colombia. This is a truly unmissable location, and while here you have to visit the Walled City, a monumental complex that was designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The colonial buildings in the Plaza de los Coches and the Church and Convent of San Pedro Claver are some of the highlights of the Walled City. After Cartagena de Indias, we will visit Curaçao, an island that belongs to the Netherlands. Its capital is Willemstad, a city full of interesting buildings, including Pietermaai Cathedral, an important example of the colonial architecture of Curaçao.
Another island that linked to the Netherlands is Bonaire, a region that stands out, above all, for the wide variety of natural landscapes it hosts. While here, visit Goto Lake and Lac Bay. In Aruba you can relax on iconic beaches, like Palm Beach, and also explore Oranjestad, full of Dutch colonial architecture. After leaving Aruba, our next stops will be in Colón or Cartagena, always depending on where you started this Pullmantur cruise.
