Having reached the Panama Canal, we decided to arrange an excursion by the historical places. To be brief, all those pirates of the Caribbean are a trifle. All the commotion took place in Portobelo (a port in the northern part of Panama, the Colon province, from which in the 17th -18th centuries a “silver fleet” loaded with treasures left for Spain, and the “beautiful harbor” name proper indicates the convenience and depth of the bay) and in Nombre de Dios nearby. What thrilling names!
We decided to complain about the hardships of the round-the-world trip a little bit. It took a long time to discuss whether this should be done. On the one hand, why complain? On the other, someone may watch our footage and conclude that it is sheer paradise. So listen to the voyagers’ complaints and, who knows, maybe you’ll give some advice.
When the Caribbean was already far behind, we saw an island at daybreak. It turned out to be the San Blas.
We decided to come closer and have a look.
It’s easy to get to the Republic of Colombia from the Dominican Republic. All you have to do is to sail across the Caribbean. With the GLONASS navigation system, it’s not a difficult task.
