As the first European to see the legendary Mar del Sur, Vasco Balboa walked into the “southern sea” claiming it for Spain. Hoping to find gold and pearls, it had taken Balboa and his small company of men three weeks to cross the Isthmus of Panamá. It’s your turn to explore these wondrous lands, though your journey will be anything but arduous as you set sail between two seas—gathering unforgettable memories.

Day 2

Cruising

An explorer’s dream, discover an array of wildlife and wild lands. In the jungle forests of Curú Wildlife Refuge, Manuel Antonio National Park, and Corcovado—Costa Rica’s largest park—search from canopy to forest floor for spider monkeys, scarlet macaws, colourful tanagers, two- and three-toed sloths, army ants, tree frogs, caimans, anteaters, and white-faced capuchin monkeys. Keep a keen ear peeled for bellowing howler monkeys. The turquoise waters near Isla Tortuga and Coiba’s Granito de Oro—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—a snorkel reveals the colourful world below the water’s surface. The vibrant gardens, butterflies and bats, and exotic fruits of a tropical botanical reserve are a feast for the senses. And not to be outdone, take a spin in a kayak or board a skiff seeking the rare flora and fauna of the Golfo Dulce mangroves. Adventure calls, and at the end of each day, relax on deck with a tropical beverage in-hand. On your last full day, it’s captain’s choice for the ultimate experience bobbing about the Gulf of Panamá Islands. There are excellent birding opportunities, or perhaps you’ll find yourself in a tiny village at Panamá’s oldest church. Sail into the sunset on one of the top bucket-list “to do’s” on earth—transit the 48-mile-long Panamá Canal, a marvel of engineering and human tenacity. During your transit, celebrate with a special farewell dinner. (B)(L)(D)
