EXPERIENCE A RELAXED COSTA RICA CRUISE AND WILDLIFE TOUR
Cruise through the waters onboard the world's largest and tallest stunning sailing ships around the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica which is shaped like a giant crab with two great claws. Within this wide embrace lies a natural paradise so dazzling and diverse that it defies any adequate description. With 9,000 higher plant species, 850 bird species, hundreds of frogs and reptiles and 10 percent of all mammals on earth, today it is human visitors who find welcome refuge.
Your Costa Rica tour begins with a walk to the edge of the Poas Volcano crater for magnificent views of this amazing landscape. Enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Central Valley, ringed by soaring mountains, strawberry plantations and flower farms. A pair of scarlet macaws breaks out of the treetops and soars over a beach where the only tracks are those of last night's nesting turtles. You ride your horse over the sands to a small stream where blue butterflies play over brilliant pink flowers. Sounds of jungle and surf are strangely intermingled. This is where rain forest and beach meet in Costa Rica's Corcovado National Park. From the stunning volcanic peaks of Nicaragua down to the rustic scenery of Panama, Central America's breathtaking beauty allows you to just sit, stand, lie or look in any direction and watch nature perform around you. Howler monkeys roam freely through the jungle canopy above while manta rays weightlessly glide through the waters below. Join us in a rare adventure of nature unbounded.
LINK THE BEAUTY OF THE CARIBBEAN SEA WITH THE SPLENDOUR OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN ON A PANAMA CANAL CRUISE
The Panama Canal is a marvel of man-made ingenuity. Upon its completion the world's two great oceans were joined together and a maritime route sought after for centuries was created. For cruise passengers, these are likely to be the most exciting 8 hours ever spent on board a ship. From the moment the ship enters the set of locks until its release into another ocean, the voyage is momentous, not only for the beautiful tropical rainforests that can be seen and enjoyed while underway but for the historic journey the canal represents. Panama Canal cruises typically depart from the Caribbean, calling at one or two Caribbean islands before entering the canal and ending in the West Coast, USA. Reverse itineraries are available and 'partial transits' of the canal, turning in the Gatun Lake, are a popular alternative.
