Itinerary

Fuerte Amador (Panama City)
Day 1
Fuerte Amador, the Panama Canal's Pacific terminus, lies at the end of a mile-long manmade causeway, built from the canal's waste materials. Nearby, Frank Gehry's colourful Biomuseo showcases Panama's biodiversity. Miraflores Locks' visitor centre tells the story of this legendary waterway. A short taxi ride away, modern Panama City has evolved around its two historic centres: the conquistador-era Panamá Viejo and 17th-century Casco Viejo.
Day at sea
Day 2
Sea days are rarely dull. Take the time to sit back and let the world go by. The ship’s observation decks provide stunning views of the passing ocean. A day at sea gives you the opportunity to mingle with other passengers and share your experiences of this incredible trip or head to our library which is stocked full of reference books. Get an expert’s view in one of our on-board lectures or perhaps perfect your photography skills with invaluable advice from our onboard professional photographers.
Quepos
Day 3
The lively town of Quepos serves as a gateway to Manuel Antonio National Park, one of Costa Rica's top attractions. The park offers diverse landscapes, including mountains, mangrove forests, lagoons, beaches and vibrant rainforests. With over 350 species of birds and over 100 species of mammals, the Perezoso trail provides opportunities to spot wildlife, such as scarlet macaws, toucans, hawks, armadillos and sloths who hide in the guarumo trees.
Curu Wildlife Refuge
Day 4
Curu Wildlife Refuge in Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula has diverse trails through forests, mangroves and beaches. Part of a sustainable farm, it has 232 bird species, including parrots, woodpeckers, and scarlet macaws, and hosts howler and capuchin monkeys. The refuge also aids sea turtles like the Pacific ridley, hawksbill and green sea turtles through an eco-project focusing on artificial reef and coral restoration in Curu Bay.
Playa Quesera
Day 4
Part of Curú Wildlife Refuge on Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, Playa Quesera counts as one of the country's best beaches. This secluded spot with views of Isla Tortuga stands out with its white sands, aquamarine waters, rugged rock formations and swaying palms with tropical birds such as scarlet macaws overhead. Kayakers regularly ply the waters in this tranquil paradise.
Golfito, Golfo Dulce
Day 5
The deep and well sheltered Golfo Dulce, or ‘Sweet Gulf’, borders the Osa Peninsula’s eastern shore. The northeast section of the gulf is part of the 35,000-acre Piedras Blancas National Park, a stunning tract of rainforest that used to be part of Corcovado, and still protects the same amazing biodiversity. As you explore the lush rainforest here, you’ll come face to face with some of the tallest trees in the world, you’ll also come across pretty waterfalls and perhaps also toucans, macaws, anteaters, sloths, howler monkeys and more.
Cebaco Island
Day 6
Cebaco Island, a private island in the Gulf of Montijo off Panama's coast, captivates nature lovers. Verdant forests host diverse flora and fauna, while pristine beaches line the coast. The island's marine life thrives, showcasing vibrant fish in coral reefs, graceful rays in the depths, and majestic sea turtles navigating with unhurried grace.
Darien Jungle
Day 7
The authentic Emberá tribe live in the Darien Jungle, and rarely receive outside visitors.They rely on the jungle, using its plants for food, medicine and clothing. This is a unique opportunity to meet the indigenous people and discover their local customs.This visit offers an immersive look at an ancient culture still thriving in the Panamanian wilderness.
