Location of Adventure
Costa Rica & Panama, Central America
Group Size Limit
Approximately 100 Travelers
An important feature of any Lindblad Expeditions adventure cruise is the small ship size. Smaller ships are able to access more remote areas off limits to large cruise ships, and guests aboard enjoy more intimate nature encounters as well as more personalized interactions with the ship's naturalist staff. Guests are divided into smaller groups for expedition landing craft excursions, kayak outings and hikes ashore.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers

Accommodations aboard ship, dinner from Day 1 to breakfast on final day, non-alcoholic beverages aboard ship, excursions and entrance fees, services of Naturalist staff and ship physician, gratuities for local drivers and guides, use of kayaks and snorkeling equipment, all port charges and service taxes.

Our Panama and Costa Rica adventure cruise does not require a high degree of physical fitness, although numerous short walks on shore excursions may be involved. We stress that all activities are optional. Travelers should be aware that the heat and humidity may be very high and roads may be bumpy.
Important Information About This Trip
Please contact an Adventure Specialist for more information.
Since the areas we travel to on this extension are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat’s medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays, to lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation or comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer through Travelex by calling 800-543-8917.
