Between Two Oceans: Panama Canal Expedition

Aboard the 132-guest Silver Explorer
Wed, March 28, 2012 - Wed, April 04, 2012
From Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica, we depart on our luxury expedition ship, Silver Explorer. Visit Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the most bio-diverse areas of the world. Look for capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys and three-toed sloth and meet with the creators of the Santuario Silvestre de Osa, a rainforest wildlife rehabilitation center. Kayak through tropical mangroves; hike tropical rainforest trails; snorkel and swim amidst colorful sea life. Identify parrots, macaws, hawks, hummingbirds, vultures and the endangered great curassows.

Visit an Embera village in the Darien Jungle of Panama and then see the city life of Panama's three cities with overnight stays in Balboa and Colon. We visit the former Canal Zone and witness ships transit the locks; then back on board transit the Panama Canal ourselves. Throughout the journey, learn from our expert Expedition Staff – including naturalists, a historian, anthropologist and oceanographer. We disembark in Colon, Panama. Experience 5-star luxury on the all-inclusive Silver Explorer (including open bar and 24-hour room service) but without the formal attire!
