Ports

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.

Havana is a place where time seems to have stopped, in a country for a long time closed to the public because of many political tensions. Architecture has been preserved from the ravages of modernism, colors, faded with time, are evidence of the splendor of the Spanish imprint. La Habana Vieja is a UNESCO heritage site. Discover the place that inspired Hemingway, ride a taxi particular and listen to the omnipresent music to submerge yourself in the unique Cuban atmosphere.

    When I found out that you could still sail traditional ships I remember thinking: a) this is probably a joke, and b) why have I not done it yet? I had experience sailing on yachts and dinghies but with an interest in naval …
