Signature Costa Rica with Panama City

14 days from £3013pp

Private Journey


Tiny Costa Rica has an extraordinary diversity of flora and fauna and its people are extremely welcoming.The comprehensive network of national parks with their extensive trails is always very accessible.  In line with its love and respect for the great outdoors, Costa Rica also has been at the vanguard of adventure tourism, with activities on offer from zip-lining to white-water rafting.

Visit the Caribbean jungle waterways and mangrove forests of the wildlife-rich Tortuguero reserve. Move on to discover the densely packed canopy in the Monteverde cloud forest, with its rich bird and animal life; then walk the hanging bridges in the shadow of the picture-perfect Arenal Volcano. After this, fly down to Panama City.

Panama has a different rhythm, and is a real melting pot of cultures as a result of being at the crossroads of oceans. The Panama Canal, one of the world’s most crucial transport corridors, is a stunning piece of engineering.  You will pass through some of the locks on a launch and explore the historic capital, with its history of pirates and naval battles. Your trip ends with a couple of days’ relaxation on a white-sand beach on the San Blas islands off the Caribbean coast.
