Experience untamed adventure on this 8-day Costa Rica and Panama small ship cruise that sets sail aboard the intimate 64-guest Safari Voyager, yet lets you explore off ship by skiff, hike, paddleboard, snorkel and kayak. Highlights include transiting the 48-mile-long Panama Canal connecting the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean, visiting Costa Rica's largest park, Corcovado National Park, and snorkeling the crystalline waters at Panama's Granito de Oro.

And of course wildlife abounds. Visits to a butterfly- and flower-filled tropical botanical reserve and explorations in lush jungles and pristine islands are prime opportunities to spot two- and three-toed sloths, howler monkeys, scarlet macaws, squirrel monkeys and white-faced capuchins.

This small ship cruise route covers the entire Pacific coastline of Panama, and most of Costa Rica's too, making it one of the best ways to cruise the region. It's also our most active adventure cruise option in Costa Rica.
