Six Tropical Treasures

Discover the beauty of Latin America’s Pacific coast. Enjoy the tropical climate as we sail to discover historic culture, beautiful landscapes and rich wildlife in six unique countries.

Across the Equator

We start our voyage in Ecuador, and cross Equator as we sail north to our first calls on Colombia’s Pacific coast. Next, we visit Gorgona Island, a beautiful tropical isle and national park with lush green rainforest and fascinating volcanic rock formations. Here we´ll find the village of Bahia Solano, located in splendid isolation, for wildlife watching or enjoying a range of activities.

Panamanian Park and Costa Rican Relaxing

In Panama, we call on Darien National Park, home to the Embras community and remarkable flora and wildlife. Cebaco Island offers great hiking opportunities through its tropical rainforest.

Throughout the expedition cruise, you can enjoy the slow pace of life, unwind on the beach, or swim in the warm waters. Our next stops at Quepos and Golfito in Costa Rica offer fantastic activities.

Nicaragua and Mexico

Nicaragua’s San Juan del Sur is the perfect setting for a relaxed day on a sandy beach, before we sail north to Acapulco, Mexico, which invites you for a stroll through its historic center and the botanical garden. Finally, we set sail northbound to La Paz, the capital of Baja California in Mexico to complete our adventure.
