Sunny Islands and Andes

Cruise under the Bridge of the Americas as you enter the Panama Canal

Take in the splendor of South America, Central America, and the Caribbean on this 18-night voyage aboard the cruise ship Marina.

Your journey begins in Santiago, Chile, a city of dazzling skyscrapers surrounded by the snow-capped Andes. Here, experience the hustle and bustle of La Vega Central Market, and prepare to be awestruck by the beauty of Chile’s Metropolitan Cathedral.

In vibrant Lima, Peru, enjoy baroque architecture and the ruins of Huaca Pucllana—an adobe clay pyramid.

Next, discover the many archeological excavations in Salaverry, or travel to Trujillo, an energetic metropolis at the edge of the Andean foothills.

Once in Manta, Ecuador, stroll along pristine coastlines, hike through lush rainforests, and buy an authentic straw fedora.

Cruise through the legendary waterway that is the Panama Canal before arriving in Puerto Limón, a tropical Costa Rican paradise full of mangrove wetlands, towering mountains, and unique wildlife.

From there, you’ll sail north to Honduras. In Roatán, stroll the white-sand beaches and take a dip in the topaz waters, home to the largest barrier reef in the Caribbean Sea.

In Belize, lounge under a beachfront cabana in Harvest Caye before encountering Mayan ruins in Costa Maya, Mexico.

At your last stop, Cozumel, roam the Punta Sur Ecological Park or take a submarine tour of the Caribbean.
