Small countries with a lot of natural diversity: Costa Rica and Panama
As small as Panama and Costa Rica appear on the map, they are home to more species of plants and animals than can be found in all of Northern America and Europe combined. Both countries have placed more than a quarter of their total area under protection and offer the impressive number of more than 200 national parks, forest reserves and game sanctuaries. During this trip, a multitude of different landscapes presents itself – from rain forests and tropical flower paradises to mystical mangrove woods and beautiful beaches.

Costa Rica’s Pacific coast: perfect sailing waters
The sea surrounding Costa Rica is the perfect place for sailing – and the Sea Cloud ii is the perfect yacht to sail in. Our ship will cruise between the far-flung national parks, ensuring that you arrive completely refreshed and ready to begin each new adventure on land.

The picture-perfect beaches of Costa Rica and Panama
On the tranquil coasts of Costa Rica and Panama, unforget-table natural scenery and beautiful relaxing
beaches are just a few steps apart. Paradisiacal conservation areas blend into charming bays, and shady palms line the beaches as if on a picture postcard. And if you really just want to relax, you will find the perfect place to do so in the soft sands of Coiba, Tortuga and the Pearl Islands.

Fascinating Panama Canal
This masterpiece of engineering art has been connecting the Pacific with the Atlantic for more than 100 years. In 2016, its extension was opened: Within nine years, 40,000 workers had used 192,000 tons of steel in order to enable the passage of giant freighters carrying up to 14,000 containers. Passing through the mighty locks during the day is a rather special experience.

Megacity in the jungle: Panama City
As an international trade centre, gate to the Panama Canal and starting point for excursions to spectacular
national parks, Panama City has evolved into a lively trend metropolis. Away from the sparkling skyline, time still moves at a different pace in the old quarter of the Casco Viejo: Strolling along grand old boulevards lined with bougainvillea is like walking right back into colonial times.

A lecturer accompanies the trip
You are bound to have some questions about all the fascinating flora and fauna found in the national parks
we visit during this cruise. For that reason, a scientist who knows all there is to know about the region’s varying ecosystems will be on board to provide you with the answers. He will be joining us for the entire journey, giving talks and accompanying us on excursions.
