Trip to the ABC islands
Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao – the alphabet of the Caribbean begins with these three islands off the coast of Venezuela. The ABC islands are considered the “Netherlands of the Caribbean”, and their Dutch colonial past is still visible in the pastel-coloured architecture. There are plenty of colours on show underwater, too: Their breathtaking biodiversity renders these three island beauties a Mecca for water sports fans.
Idyllic sailing along the trade winds
Throughout winter and spring, the Caribbean trade winds provide ideal speeds and perfect stability while
delivering extremely pleasant air and water temperatures. The many hours out at sea are a real joy for the
tall ship and a delight for those looking to enjoy the freedom beneath the sails. All this in stunning waters.
Cartagena’s colonial centre
When in the old days, the Spanish fleet entered the port twice a year to sell weapons and horses and load gold, silver and gems, all of Cartagena was out and about. Founded in 1533, the historic town exudes the flair of colonial times until today. With its colourful houses, Andalusian palaces and numerous churches, the historical centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
