At a Glance

On an unparalleled learning adventure by luxury yacht, experience the striking contrast of buzzing, technicolor Panama City — Central America’s most cosmopolitan capital — with the natural beauty and lazy pace found in the iconic waters and coastline of Panama and Costa Rica. Lazy doesn’t mean dull. What is more enlivening than snorkeling off an island paradise? Or hearing the shrill of a Red-lored Parrot? Or studying authentic life in an indigenous village? History, culture and natural wonders are center stage in this idyllic, educational sailing of the Panama Canal and two countries’ coastal gems.
Activity Level
