Calling all nature lovers and independent-minded souls who like to explore off the tourist track—this is the cruise you’ve been looking for. With six ports in Costa Rica and five in Panama (plus a full Canal transit with onboard Historian
you’ll want to bring comfortable shoes, a good camera and an adventurous spirit. The terrain varies from marshy Everglades to rainforest canopies, cloud forests to sparkling blue underground rivers—ready for you to explore by airboat, innertube, zipline and more. You never know when you might catch a glimpse of a resplendent quetzal or a shy spider monkey, not to mention the whales and dolphins of Golfo Dulce. With your Costa Rican Naturalist onboard for the duration of the cruise, you’ll always have someone to ask when you have a question. Our unique itinerary is designed for those who’d rather make tracks than follow them, taking you to seven small ship-only ports, most of which are Windstar exclusives. And when you’re not exploring Isla Parida in the middle of Chiriquí National Marine Park or remote Corcovado National Park from Bahia Drake, there are coffee plantations and Mayan ruins to discover, Embera Indians to meet, conch fritters to eat, and white-sand beaches to lie on devoid of noise or traffic.
