Central America Caribbean Cruise

Costa Rica & Panama—Canal, Culture & Adventure

Explore Panama and Costa Rica for 11 or 13 days in search of up-close adventures aboard the intimate 66-guest Safari Voyager. Travel by motorized dugout canoe to meet the local Emberá people and discover the indigenous culture of the Guna Indians.

Hike the magnificent Darién Jungle in search of wildlife, search for unique marine life in the Gulf of Panama, stroll a private butterfly- and flower-rich tropical preserve. Marvel at the history as you transit the 48-mile-long Panamá Canal, explore historic Fort San Lorenzo—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—and kayak, stand-up paddleboard and snorkel among the breathtaking beauty of Las Perlas and Granito de Oro. 

This active small ship cruise allows you to explore the magic and diversity that makes Panama so unique. An alternate 13-day option adds time exploring the San Blas Islands and Guna Yala culture. Get off the boat to discover Panama and Costa Rica as it is meant to be seen. After a day of exploration, relax on the luxurious Safari Voyager while taking in the panoramic views of this country’s awe-inspiring natural surroundings.
