Continue your voyage off the coast of Venezuela visiting the archipelago of Los Roques, consisting of over 300 small islands. Then its onto Bonaire, part of the Dutch Antilles, and reminiscent of the Caribbean before mass tourism. Next visit Williamstadt, the brightly colored Dutch capital on the isle of Curacao. Then make an off-shore passage north towards Panama with a stop at the small, out of the way, English speaking isle of Providencia.
Arriving in Panama waters, pay an extensive visit to an island group out of the past: the San Blas, home to the Kuna Indians. Continuing north towards the Panama Canal, stop along the coast to visit a small colony of beach side bungalows. Here, passing sailors often spend some months of land time before continuing on their voyages.
Finally, make the passage through the Panama Canal to the busy Panama City, a jumping off port for voyages across the Pacific.
