Board your small, intimate vessel for an 11-day expedition-style cruise to discover the natural landscapes, wildlife and indigenous cultures of the Pacific coasts of tropical Costa Rica and Panama. Your US-owned cruise operator puts the accent on exploring sensitively some of the most exquisite and fragile environments of Central America, while making sure you have a diverse range of experiences and activities. You'll have plenty of fun and relaxation while learning so much about the carefully selected places on your itinerary. You’ll soon get to know your fellow travellers, representing a mix of ages and passions, and your well-informed crew are always on hand.
Having boarded your 62-guest cruise vessel, Safari Voyager, you will visit a number of sparsely populated archipelagos, where crystal clear waters stroke coral beaches fringed by rainforest. There are plenty of opportunities to go wildlife spotting, with hikes, snorkelling, kayaking and paddle-boarding all on offer and you will meet the indigenous inhabitants of Darien Province, the most remote region in the Americas, inaccessible by road. In the evenings you will be able to mix in a sociable environment with passengers and crew, watching the world go by through huge picture windows, a cocktail in your hand.The cruise ends after you sail through the Panama Canal, definitely one of the highlights of the trip, and disembark in Panama City, one of the most diverse metropolises in Latin America with a gorgeous historic core.
