Your Itinerary
Day 1: Bridgetown Bridgetown (Barbados)(Bridgetown)

Bridgetown originally called 'Indian Bridge' is the capital and commercial centre of Barbados with about 80 000 inhabitants. It is a busy port with a natural harbour inlet known as the Careenage and is well utilised by pleasure craft and fishing boats.Bridgetown has a long and colourful history as a British settlement from the 17th century. A bustling city with many attractions for travellers its mix of modern and historic buildings are interspersed with markets monuments and a number of lush gardens.The main street Broad Street is where one finds banks department stores and duty-free shops. At the top of Broad Street is the Parliament Building (the Barbados Parliament is the third oldest in the Commonwealth dating from 1639) facing National Heroes Square. Bridgetown is home to a number of historical buildings that will interest visitors including the Garrison Historic Area which is a must-visit for military history buffs.Another attraction in Bridgetown is a massive Baobab tree (said to have been brought to the island from Guinea Africa around 1738). It takes 15 adults with outstretched arms to encircle the trunk.Tourists in Bridgetown will find much to see and do: cricket games at Kensington Oval which hosted the 2007 Cricket World Cup; the Barbados Derby at the racetrack in the Garrison area; and many other events and activities. A range of duty-free shops near the harbour sell staples like Mount Gay Rum while more colourful shopping options include the Cheapside Market and the Swan Street pedestrian mall. Local restaurants in the Careenage serve up fresh lobster and fish with Caribbean flair.

Day 3: Willemstad Willemstad (Curaçao)(Willemstad)

Dutch settlers came here in the 1630s, about the same time they sailed through the Verazzano Narrows to Manhattan, bringing with them original red-tile roofs, first used on the trade ships as ballast and later incorporated into the architecture of Willemstad. Much of the original colonial structures remain, but this historic city is constantly reinventing itself and the government monument foundation is always busy restoring buildings in one urban neighborhood or another. The salty air causes what is called "wall cancer" which causes the ancient abodes to continually crumble over time. The city is cut in two by Santa Anna Bay. On one side is Punda (the point)—crammed with shops, restaurants, monuments, and markets and a new museum retracing its colorful history. And on the other side is Otrobanda (literally meaning the "other side"), with lots of narrow, winding streets and alleyways (called "steekjes" in Dutch), full of private homes notable for their picturesque gables and Dutch-influenced designs. In recent years the ongoing regeneration of Otrobanda has been apparent, marked by a surge in development of new hotels, restaurants, and shops; the rebirth, concentrated near the waterfront, was spearheaded by the creation of the elaborate Kura Hulanda complex.There are three ways to cross the bay: by car over the Juliana Bridge; by foot over the Queen Emma pontoon bridge (locally called "The Swinging Old Lady"); or by free ferry, which runs when the pontoon bridge is swung open for passing ships. All the major hotels outside town offer free shuttle service to town once or twice daily. Shuttles coming from the Otrobanda side leave you at Riffort. From here it's a short walk north to the foot of the pontoon bridge. Shuttles coming from the Punda side leave you near the main entrance to Ft. Amsterdam.

Day 4: Oranjestad Oranjestad (Aruba)(Oranjestad)

Aruba's capital, Oranjestad, is the first stop for most visitors. Its small harbour, once reserved for schooners and fishing boats, now attracts cruise ships from all over the world, and the island's Queen Beatrix airport is located just south of the city. Despite the thousands of tourists that pour into the town it has managed to retain its traditional charm.

Oranjestad's downtown streets are lined with pastel-coloured Dutch colonial houses with ornate gable roofs. The orange-coloured façades not only point to the capital's name, but to the island's connection to the Netherlands and William of Orange, a Dutch monarch instrumental in the gaining of Dutch independence

A highlight in Oranjestad is the Archaeological Museum, with exhibits on Aruba's original Arawak inhabitants. In the restored 18th-century Fort Zoutman, the Museo Arubano displays Aruba's pre-European and colonial eras. The fort itself is one of Oranjestad's most popular attractions, built in 1796. It played a pivotal role in battles between Curaçao and British troops in 1803. In the late 1800s, the Willem III tower (named after the Dutch king at the time) was added to act as a lighthouse.

Enthusiastic shoppers will find central Oranjestad packed with boutiques, shopping complexes and glitzy 24-hour casinos. However, it is possible to escape this tourist zone and discover the more authentic town with its lively, if slightly run-down bars, where visitors can enjoy a quiet beer and meet the locals.

Day 6: Cartagena Cartagena (Colombia)(Cartagena)

Visually Cartagena is a paradise with lush bougainvilla winding its way through a maze of cobblestone alleys lined by brightly-painted buildings. A UNESCO World Heritage Site the city is a popular tourist destination for both Colombian and international holidaymakers. Cartagena's history goes back to 4000BC and today its skyline is a blend of modern skyscrapers and colourful colonial facades.Cartagena's colourful past is evident in the many historical attractions in the city. Most are located in the walled Old Town which contains beautiful examples of colonial architecture and excellent shopping and restaurants. Neighbourhoods like Centre San Diego Getsemaní and the more modern La Matuna all have unique personalities that delight visitors. Old Town is also home to the labyrinthine Bazurto Market which is more of an opportunity to glimpse the everyday life of a Cartagenan than stock up on souvenirs.The Palace of the Inquisition the dungeons of Las Bovedas and the Cartagena Gold Museum are good places to get a feel for Cartagena's history while the San Pedro Claver Convent and the Santo Domingo Church offer their own perspective. A number of stately mansions and fortresses (including the impressive Castillo de San Felipe) dot the area as well.The most popular attractions in Cartagena are its sparkling beaches. However the best beaches in Cartagena are to be found a little ways out of the city. Playa Blanca and Sportbaru are popular resorts that offer watersports boat tours and other activities as well as a selection of restaurants and bars. Ferries are also available for excursions to nearby islands including the Islas del Rosario.

Day 8: Panama Canal Transit Panama Canal Transit(Panama Canal Transit)

Day 10: Manta Panama Canal Transit(Manta)

The city of Manta is located on the central coast of Ecuador. It is the capital of the province of Manabí and the main port of the country. Manta has a population of about 200,000 people. It is a beautiful city with a lot to offer tourists. The city has a tropical climate and is known for its beaches, seafood, and culture. There are many things to do in Manta, including swimming, sunbathing, fishing, and sailing. There are also a number of museums and historical sites to visit. Manta is a great place to visit if you are looking for a relaxing vacation.

Day 12: Salaverry Salaverry (Peru)(Salaverry)

Located about nine hours north of Lima, Trujillo was founded in 1534 by the Spanish conquistador Pizarro. The attractive, colonial city retains much of its original charm with elegant casonas, or mansions, lining the streets. Nearby is Chan Chan, the ancient capital of the Chimú, a local Indian tribe who came under the rule of the Incas. The area has several other Chimú sites, some dating back about 1500 years. The region is also famous as the home of the Peruvian Paso horses, as well as excellent beaches offering world-class surfing and other water sports.

Day 13: Callao Callao (Peru)(Callao)

Callao is a Peruvian port city located in the Lima Metropolitan Area. Callao is Peru's chief port and the country's main naval base. The city is also the capital of Callao Province. Callao is Peru's second-largest city, after Lima.

The city was founded in 1537 by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro. It was originally named San Gabriel de Callao, after the Archangel Gabriel.

Callao has a tropical climate, with average temperatures of 22°C (72°F). The city experiences two seasons: a warm, wet season from December to April, and a cooler, drier season from May to November.

Callao is home to the University of Callao (Universidad del Callao), the largest university in Peru. The city also has a number of hospitals, including the Naval Hospital of Callao, which is one of the largest in the country.

The port of Callao is Peru's main port, handling over 60% of the country's maritime trade. The port is also a major fishing port, with over 200,000 metric tons of fish caught each year.

Callao is served by Jorge Chávez International Airport, the busiest airport in Peru. The airport is located in the nearby town of El Alto.

Callao has a population of about 804,000 people (2018 estimate). The vast majority of the population is of Hispanic origin. There is also a significant Chinese community in the city.

Day 16: Arica Arica (Chile)(Arica)

Arica boasts that it is "the land of the eternal spring," but its temperate climate and beaches are not the only reason to visit this small city. Relax for an hour or two on the Plaza 21 de Mayo. Walk to the pier and watch the pelicans and sea lions trail the fishing boats as the afternoon's catch comes in. Walk to the top of the Morro and imagine battles of days gone by, or wonder at the magnitude of modern shipping as Chilean goods leave the port below by container ship.Arica is gaining notice for its great surfing conditions, and in 2009 hosted the Rusty Arica Pro Surf Challenge, a qualifying event to the world series of surf.

Day 19: Valparaiso Valparaiso (Chile)(Valparaiso)

Valparaíso's dramatic topography—45 cerros, or hills, overlooking the ocean—requires the use of winding pathways and wooden ascensores (funiculars) to get up many of the grades. The slopes are covered by candy-color houses—there are almost no apartments in the city—most of which have exteriors of corrugated metal peeled from shipping containers decades ago. Valparaíso has served as Santiago's port for centuries. Before the Panama Canal opened, Valparaíso was the busiest port in South America. Harsh realities—changing trade routes, industrial decline—have diminished its importance, but it remains Chile's principal port. Most shops, banks, restaurants, bars, and other businesses cluster along the handful of streets called El Plan (the flat area) that are closest to the shoreline. Porteños (which means "the residents of the port") live in the surrounding hills in an undulating array of colorful abodes. At the top of any of the dozens of stairways, the paseos (promenades) have spectacular views; many are named after prominent Yugoslavian, Basque, and German immigrants. Neighborhoods are named for the hills they cover. With the jumble of power lines overhead and the hundreds of buses that slow down—but never completely stop—to pick up agile riders, it's hard to forget you're in a city. Still, walking is the best way to experience Valparaíso. Be careful where you step, though—locals aren't very conscientious about curbing their dogs.
