Panama Canal and Costa Rica

Snorkel among Cébaco’s colorful marine life and vivid coral reefs

The exotic scenery of Central America awaits you on this cruise from Panama to Costa Rica.

Your trip begins with a visit to the San Blas Islands of Panama, where turquoise waters and soft, sandy beaches conjure images of “paradise.” Here, you will have a chance to encounter the rich culture of the colorful, indigenous Guna people.

Next, capture the beauty of the famous Panama Canal during a daylight passage to bustling Panama City.

Once in Panama’s capital city, explore places old and new. Visit Casco Viejo—a town settled in 1673—and the Biodiversity Museum, designed by the celebrated architect Frank Gehry and opened in 2014.

In Costa Rica, experience an epic rainforest adventure. Explore Manuel Antonio National Park on a guided hike and amble through Curú National Wildlife Refuge, home to the rare scarlet macaw and the spider monkey.

Your trip will conclude with a one-night stay in San José after soaking up the sun on Tortuga Island.
