In partnership with National Geographic Expeditions.  

Set sail aboard Le Soléal for a 14-day expedition cruise crossing no fewer than five countries. PONANT proposes an all-new circuit discovering the most beautiful sites of Central America, featuring nature parks, idyllic islands and encounters with the local populations.  

Before you board the ship in Puerto Quetzal, do not miss the chance to visit the impressive and majestic Mayan site of Tikal, as well as the wonderful baroque monuments of La Antigua de Guatemala.

Your cruise will start with a visit to two superb Costa Rican national parks: the Curù Wildlife Refuge and the Manuel Antonio National Park. Deep inside the tropical rainforest or under the rainforest canopy, you may be lucky enough to see multicoloured birds, monkeys and iguana.

Le Soléal will then reach the Cocos Island, more than 500 kilometres off the coast of Costa Rica. This idyllic speck of land has an amazing ecosystem, housing turtles, manta rays, dolphins and whale sharks.

On the way to Ecuador, Le Soléal will stop in the Pearl Islands, which nestle in the Gulf of Panama, before sailing on to the magnificent Darien National Park. This little corner of paradise is a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to remarkable plants and wildlife. Sandy beaches, rocky coastlines, mangroves, swamps and tropical rainforests vie with each other for beauty. This will also be an exceptional opportunity to journey back in time as you discover the Embera tribe. These proud people have successfully preserved their traditions and their ancestral way of life.

The encounters with the wildlife described above illustrate possible experiences only and cannot be guaranteed.
