The Panama Canal & The Wonders of Costa Rica
Explore Lush Rainforests, Snorkel from Pristine Beaches, and Cruise the Legendary Canal
There are few places in the world where nature is as exuberant, colorful and diverse as in the tropics of Costa Rica, home to an amazing array of flora and fauna. But this adventure cruise takes our Central American nature immersion a step beyond, to the intriguing land of Panama as well. To many, the country of Panama is synonymous with its famous canal, one of the most celebrated human achievements on the planet. What many people don’t know, however, is that Panama offers natural beauty and biological diversity that’s equal to Costa Rica’s. That means you'll get double the rewards on this special itinerary that includes both of these spectacular nature destinations!
- Transit the Panama Canal with a stop midway at Barro Colorado Island where we're accompanied on forest walks by guides from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute
- Discover an astonishing variety of rainforest wildlife—monkeys, sloths and more than 300 species of birds, including brilliant toucans and scarlet macaws
- Explore less-traveled beaches and coastal rainforest on Costa Rica's Pacific side with stops at Golfo Dulce, the Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National Park
