Discover the treasures of Colombia and Panama during a week in these fascinating countries. Begin in Cartagena to explore this historic walled city: meet local artists in their studios, visit the seventeenth-century La Popa Convent, and enjoy a special reception at Teatro Heredia. Fly to Bogotá, where highlights include an exclusive visit to Casa de Nariño—home and workplace of the President of Colombia—and a curatorial tour of the Museo del Oro. Conclude in Panama City for an architectural tour of Casco Viejo, the first Spanish settlement on the Pacific Ocean, and board a privately chartered vessel for a partial Panama Canal Transit. Optional Medellín prelude.
