The 17-day tour sails along the iconic Panama, where holidaymakers will discover mysterious Mayan temples, journey through canopied rainforests bursting with wildlife and explore old colonial towns in the heart of Panama.

Other highlights of this trip include Costa Rica’s Carara, which is ideal for birdwatchers, a trip to Colombia’s UNESCO World Heritage Site in Cartagena famous for its pirate history, and an exciting tour of Miami.
