In partnership with National Geographic Expeditions

PONANT takes you to discover Costa Rica and Panama with an 8-day expedition cruise. A truly beautiful journey between nature reserves, encounters with local communities and sailing through the Panama Canal

Your journey in Central America will start with the discovery of the golden sand and crystal-clear waters of the coral islets of the San Blas islands.

After sailing through the world-famous Panama Canal, which connects the Atlantic to the Pacific, your ship will then head for the magnificent Darien National Park in Panama. 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 and offer a feast for photographers. This will also be the occasion for meeting the astonishing semi-nomadic Emberas community.

Then you will be able to enjoy a visit to the Manuel Antonio National Park and the Curú Wildlife Refuge. Deep inside the tropical rainforest you may be lucky enough to see multicoloured birds, monkeys, and iguanas.

Your ship will then drop anchor in front of Tortuga Island. Accompanied by your naturalist guides, you’ll set out in a Zodiac® dinghy and land in a tropical paradise where you’ll be able to relax on the long white-sand beaches lined with coconut trees, and swim in the turquoise-coloured water.

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