Costa Rica & Panama

Through the Canal and into the pure wildness of Costa Rica & Panama

The Expedition Experience

It’s a land of contrasts: the renowned natural beauty of Costa Rica and the tropical wildness of Panama; the stark concrete of the Panama Canal, a marvel of engineering in constant use for nearly 100 years. Go by expedition ship for a unique Canal transit and rare opportunities to explore deep in the jungle.

Overheard

When you take a biology class or when you hear about the rain forest, it's completely different than actually experienceing it firsthand.
