Starting in Puerto Caldera, we’ll make our way south to the banana-exporting town of Quepos, where the rainforest of Manuel Antonio National Park awaits. Look out for squirrel monkeys and hear the call of the noisy howler monkeys as you walk through the dense forest.

Our next stop is the bay of Bahia Drake, where excursions to Corcovado National Park offer the chance to see scarlet macaws, tapirs and – if you’re lucky – jaguars in its 42,000 hectares of wilderness. Sailing into Panamanian waters, we’ll visit the islands of the Chiriqui National Marine Park. Humpback whales and dolphins swim in the sparkling water and monkeys swing from the trees on the hundreds of forested islands.

We then sail onto Isla Coiba to see white-faced monkeys, and then to Toboga Island – the “island of flowers” – for spectacular hikes and beach time. See ships pass through the Panama Canal from mainland Amador, and enjoy a day trip to historic Panama City. We’ll cruise to more idyllic islands for beach days and spectacular snorkelling in the glorious Pacific waters and, after two days at sea, we’ll reach Ecuador. Here, you can explore bustling Manta, get active in Machalilla National Park or see the enchanting wildlife of Pacoche Wildlife Reserve.
