Itinerary

Note: Itinerary is reversed on certain dates.

Day 1: Colón, Panama
Untouched beaches, lowland rainforests, and elaborate colonial architecture lie just beyond the commercial center of Colón. There are plenty of things here to satisfy virtually every interest, from snorkeling in impossibly blue Caribbean waters to sunbathing on gold-sand beaches, exploring ancient ruins, or admiring the massive locks on the other side of the formidable Panama Canal.
Day 2: Panama Canal, Panama
At nearly 51 miles long and connecting two oceans with a vast "highway of water," the Panama Canal easily earns its reputation as the Eighth Wonder of the World. Experience a once-in-a-lifetime thrill as your ship is raised, then lowered 85 feet to sail gracefully through three massive locks that transport you from the calm Pacific Ocean to the shimmering waters of the Atlantic.
Day 3: At Sea
Day 4: Isla de Coiba, Panama
Covering 430,825 pristine acres, the island of Coiba has been identified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and offers some of the world's most superb diving and snorkeling. The warm, translucent waters are teeming with dazzling marine life and surrounded by one of the largest coral reefs on the Pacific. Follow them to the underwater Cordilera mountain chain, which extends as far as the Galápagos Islands.
Day 5: Golfo Dulce (Puerto Jimenez), Costa Rica
Picture Jurassic foliage growing down steep hillsides all the way to the waterline, the hoots and hollers of monkeys echoing through trees choked by orchids. This is Golfo Dulce, one of Costa Rica’s most biodiverse areas, where both the jungle and the sea brim with life. Explore the canals by kayak in search of javelinas, butterflies, and more bird species than in all of North America.
Day 6: Bahia Drake, Costa Rica
Go horseback riding through a tropical paradise. Or take the tour to nearby Corcovado National Park. Protected by a natural rock barrier, the reserve offers some of the planet’s most astounding biological diversity. Keep an eye out for red-eyed tree frogs, 100 species of butterflies, and countless bird species, including Scarlet Macaws.
Day 7: Quepos, Costa Rica
Picture Jurassic foliage growing down steep hillsides all the way to the waterline, the hoots and hollers of monkeys echoing through trees choked by orchids. This is Golfo Dulce, one of Costa Rica’s most biodiverse areas, where both the jungle and the sea brim with life. Explore the canals by kayak in search of javelinas, butterflies, and more bird species than in all of North America.
Day 8: Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica
Arrive early to absorb Costa Rica’s magnificent biodiversity. Venture to the Monteverde Cloud Forest, where 300-year-old trees and orchids form a spectacular backdrop to resplendent quetzals, tapirs, monkeys, sloths, and other rainforest residents. Or to Tortuguero National Park, one of the most remote places in Costa Rica, known for being a primary nesting site of endangered green turtles.
