Ports

Willemstad is the capital of Curaçao, a Caribbean island and a constituent country of the Netherlands. Famous for its beaches and clear-blue sea, Curaçao is a great place to enjoy watersports, from snorkelling, through kitesurfing to sailing, but the Kura Hulanda Museum is also a must-see with its rich collection of historical artifacts. If you're the adventurous type, visit the Hato Caves as well.

Cartagena is the fifth-largest city of Colombia and is located on the northern coast of the country.
The city has the biggest navy basic of the Caribbean. Around the city there are a lot of buildings of defence like the castle, city walls around the Old City and the fort of San Jose and San Fenando. In addition, there are a lot of colonial things to see and a lot of touristic activities.
