Volcanic peaks, remote reefs, verdant rainforests and colorfully painted Caribbean ports abound throughout this remarkable 18-day cruise with stops in the Caribbean, Colombia, Panama and Costa Rica. Dive or snorkel amid schools of bright colored reef fish near small port Bequia on St. Vincent & the Grenadines. Stroll worn, cobbled streets in the historic Punda Quarter of Willemstad and shop for fresh fruit and handmade trinkets at the nearby floating market. Ride a horse-drawn carriage through the narrow lanes streets of Cartagena’s walled Old Town, rolling past regal colonial mansions built when Spanish galleons protected Colombia’s coastline. Experience a fully guided daylight transit of the Panama Canal, and uncover the deadly obstacles faced by French and American engineers prior to its 1914 completion. Trek beneath the shady overgrowth of centuries-old trees while scanning the high canopy for reclusive monkeys, brightly colored tropical birds and slow-moving sloths in Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park.
