Ports

Grenada is an island-state composed of a main island, Grenada, and six smaller islands. Located in the Southeastern Caribbean Sea it hosts more than a hundred thousand inhabitants. The capital city, Saint George's, is surrounded by a hillside of an old volcano crater and a pretty big harbor. Those islands are well known tourist destinations because of the beautiful waters, astonishing landscapes and local culture. So, take your hiking shoes and go for walk to the top of the old volcano!

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.
