Central America Costa Rica Cruise

Costa Rica & The Panama Canal

Few places offer such exuberant, colorful and diverse nature as in the tropics of Costa Rica. This 8-day Costa Rica & the Panama Canal journey offers intimate exploration of Costa Rica’s lowland rainforest, pristine waters and rambunctious wildlife, as well as transits the famous Panama Canal.

The Panama Canal, stretching more than 50 miles and traversed by some 14,000 ships each year, is one of the most celebrated human achievements on the planet. Because cargo ships tend to pass through the canal during the day, small cruise ships enjoy evening or nighttime transits, when the canal is dramatically lit. A full day on Gatún Lake, the flooded lake between the Panama Canal’s two lock systems, offers an educational visit to Barro Colorado Nature Monument in Gatún Lake, where scientists have worked at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute since 1923. Discover why Panama’s natural beauty and biological diversity rivals Costa Rica’s.

On this Costa Rica and Panama small ship cruise, explore famous national parks and wildlife reserves, including a privately-owned tropical garden. Walk rainforest trails, home to capuchin and howler monkeys, three-toed sloths, green iguanas and colorful hummingbirds. Swim and snorkel Panama’s famed Isla Coiba. Kayak along wildlife-rich, remote coastlines. Go horseback riding on the beach. Relax with all the comforts and intimacy of small ship cruising.

The 100-guest National Geographic Quest expedition vessel is home base and ideal for travelers seeking small ship adventure, professional naturalist guides and activities for all levels. In addition to the eastbound itinerary, this Costa Rica and Panama Canal small ship cruise also operates westbound. Contact an Adventure Specialist for more details.
