Day 2
Curu National Wildlife Refuge

At the southeastern tip of Nicoya Peninsula—in the tangled mangroves of Curu—the cycle of life is everywhere. Wild inhabitants include everything from exotic birds and deer to leafcutter ants, snake-eating frogs and hungry crocodiles. Step carefully while crossing the swinging bridge. Land crabs shift in and out of their burrows with such force it’s enough to make the earth move. Trails offer prime howler and spider monkey viewing, and a chance to glimpse the immense blue morpho butterfly. An afternoon beach party offers up a chance to swim and stroll along shore.

Day 3
Osa Conservation Area

Adventure lies around every bend in the isolated, wild Osa Conservation Area, home to the country’s largest national park, Corcovado. Drake Bay, named after its discoverer Sir Francis Drake and fabled to house the explorer’s hidden treasures, is also known for hundreds of distinct species of plants and trees and its diverse plant and animal species. A whopping 2.5% of the entire planet’s biodiversity is found here—including all four of Costa Rica’s monkeys, tree frogs, caimans, anteaters, scarlet macaws, coatis and 16 different species of hummingbird. Explore this vast area putting feet to trail on an invigorating hike through the jungle. At the end of the day, enjoy the sunset and retell stories of the day with fellow travel-mates.

Golfo Dulce

A birder’s haven, explore the botanical reserve of Golfo Dulce which explodes with vibrant color. From bromeliads, ginger plants and heliconias, to toucans, hummingbirds, mischievous monkeys and fluttering butterflies—there’s a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds and tastes in every tree and bush passed on a walking tour. In Golfo Dulce, the sweet gulf which separates Osa Peninsula from the mainland and one of only four tropical fjords on the planet, explore the rare flora and fauna of mangroves by kayak and skiff. Bottlenose, spotted and spinner dolphins also swim in the waters of this tucked away wilderness.

Day 5
Granito de Oro, Coiba National Park

Sail through the islands of Coiba National Park, making a stop at Granito de Oro islet. Offering a little bit of everything despite its small size, volcanic outcroppings at either end of this tiny landmass and a dense, mini-jungle in the center connect with a dreamy white sand beach. Named one of the world’s top 10 diving sites, this day of play features snorkeling among abundant marine life, kayaking around rocky outcroppings and lounging on the warm sand for a casual beach party with the local hermit crabs. Hop to the park’s main island for a stretch of the legs on a trail through this tropical jungle. Mantled howler monkeys, scarlet macaws and two turtle species call Isla Coiba home.

Day 6
Captain's Choice

Wake up in paradise. Start with fresh-brewed coffee and a little limbering up with guided stretches on deck. As always, the hardest part is picking the what. The guides know the trails and help spot monkeys, hummingbirds and towering balsa trees. Slip into the drink for a kayak or snorkel. Go exploring by skiff. Or just kick back in a hammock under swaying palms. Then it’s cruising time. Settle into a comfy lounge chair and take in the views.

Travel the Mogue River by motorized canoe with the expedition guide who helps spot wildlife—colorful roseate spoonbills, ibises, osprey and raccoons fishing from the water’s edge. Delving deeper into this mysterious, almost mythical place, get to meet the locals. Embera villagers offer a traditional welcome and share customs, stories, songs and dance. The tip of the day, buy handicrafts from the villagers. Their highly prized and intricately woven rainforest baskets are keepers.

Day 9
Pearl Islands Archipelago & Panama Canal

Discovered by Spanish conquistadors and named for the flood of pearls found, the 90 islands and nearly 130 islets of the Pearl Islands are now almost entirely uninhabited by humans and instead boast a plethora of tropical flora and fauna. Gear is simple today—have binoculars handy for superb bird watching on a skiff tour of Bartolome Island’s bird sanctuary. Magnificent frigatebirds, brown pelicans and yellow warblers are likely to pop into your field of vision. For more exploration, select your modus operandi—kayak, paddleboard, skiff, or snorkel—and set out in a nature lovers’ dreamscape. Take in the whole of it while preparing for one of the most memorable travel experiences—transiting between two seas along the 48-mile marvel, the Panama Canal. The lock authority gives the final go ahead for the evening transit. Join fellow shipmates on deck for a toast as the canal lights up and the temperature subsides. A story of engineering and human tenacity, it took over 75,000 workers to build it, and takes the ship about eight hours to transit.
