At a Glance

Set sail on an odyssey that early explorers of the New World could only have dreamed of as you explore both the Pacific and the Atlantic shores of Central and South America via the Panama Canal. Before the canal’s completion in 1914, journeys from Pacific to Atlantic ports in the Americas took months and followed a treacherous route around the infamous Cape Horn. Achieve what mariners of old could not as you transit the Panama Canal in a single day.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Spend a day you’ll never forget transiting the Panama Canal, an engineering feat that defies belief even a century after its completion.
  • Learn cooking techniques used in traditional Mexican cuisine during a cooking class at a Puerto Vallarta restaurant.
  • Journey down the Tarcoles River to look for birds and other creatures of the jungle.
