Itinerary Notes

Use the itinerary as a guide only. Itineraries may be altered due to weather, wildlife, National Park regulation or at the captain's discretion. The ability to be flexible makes this type of small ship cruising unique.

Arrival & Departure

If your cruise starts in Herradura, Costa Rica, plan to arrive to San Jose, Costa Rica, no later than 12:00pm on the day of embarkation; the vessel boards at 3:00pm in Herradura and sets sail at 4:00pm. We recommend coming into Costa Rica the day before or planning to spend a few days exploring Costa Rica before the cruise to account for any flight delays. At the end of the cruise the Variety Voyager docks at the Shelter Bay Marina in Colon, Panama. Disembarkation is at 9am. We recommend you plan flights to depart Panama City anytime after 12:00pm. For cruises starting in Colon (reverse itinerary), plan to arrive to the Panama City Airport no later than 12:00pm on the day of embarkation. The cruise disembarks in Herradura, Costa Rica; flights should be planned to depart San Jose after 2:00pm.
