Expedition cruise: Panama, the Canal and Costa Rica

16 days from £6,978pp

Price excludes international flights at the beginning and end of the trip


Private Journey


Board your small, intimate vessel for a 13-day expedition-style cruise to discover the natural landscapes, wildlife and indigenous cultures of the captivating Caribbean and Pacific coasts of tropical Panama and Costa Rica. 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.

The holiday starts in Panama City, one of the most diverse metropolises in Latin America with a gorgeous historic core. Having boarded your 62-guest cruise vessel, Safari Voyager, you will set sail through the Panama Canal, definitely one of the highlights of the trip. During your voyage you will visit a number of sparsely populated archipelagos, where crystal clear waters stroke coral beaches fringed by rainforest. You will meet their indigenous inhabitants and there are plenty of opportunities to go wildlife spotting, with hikes, snorkelling, kayaking and paddle-boarding all on offer. 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.
