Getting There & Getting Home
Plan to arrive in Panama City on Day 1 of the itinerary. On arrival, we will drive to Colon to board National Geographic Sea Lion and set sail for the first part of our Panama Canal transit, anchoring in Gatun Lake for the night. We will disembark the ship on Day 8 in Herradura, Costa Rica, and drive to the airport for flights home. Please note that some departures travel in reverse, beginning in San Jose and ending Panama City.
