WINNER: World’s Best Expedition Cruise Line | 2023 World Cruise Awards

Panama is a biological hotspot. Its tropical habitats are home to some of the most diverse and exotic species of plants and animals on Earth. Rainforests, mangrove wetlands and mountain cloud forests cover almost half the country’s land surface. Panama is also a vital part of a biological highway known as the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor, and connects North and South America, allowing a rich exchange of plants and animals. Panama houses approximately 1,200 orchid varieties and almost 1,000 indigenous bird species. All this in a tiny country about the size of Scotland.

Panama is synonymous with the Panama Canal – world renowned as a marvel of engineering, allowing ships to cross between the Pacific and the Atlantic Ocean in approximately 10 hours – a journey that once took almost two weeks to complete, when vessels were forced to sail around the notoriously rough seas around Cape Horn at the tip of South America.

Over one million people visit the canal each year to witness the locks at work, and crossing the canal, whether partially or completely is a bucket-list experience for many travellers. Join us on our inaugural Costa Rica & The Panama Canal voyage and traverse the iconic Panama Canal on a guaranteed daylight crossing from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Sea.
