Costa Rica & the Panama Canal

10/05/2013 0 By Chris Parnell

The close of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 introduces a new and exciting destination for Discover the World Cruising – the exotic and natural splendours of Central America including the incredible Panama Canal aboard Variety Cruises’ newest Mega Yacht Variety Voyager.

This 8 day tropical voyage starts in the charming port of Los Seunos in Costa Rica and will continue to the famous nature reserves and national parks of Isla Coiba, Corcovado and Manuel Antonio, before the once-in-a-lifetime must do experience of transiting the Panama Canal. And there is no better way to experience transiting this engineering marvel than aboard a small ship, such as the MY Variety Voyager, as it allows you to get up close and to truly appreciate the immensity of this great human feat.

To celebrate the launch of this exciting new itinerary, book any Costa Rica voyage with Discover the World Cruising departing between December 2013 and March 2014 by 31 July 2013 and save up to AU$2,230 per couple off the cruise fare!

There is also so much more to see and do, in and around Costa Rica before or after the cruise, and Discover the World Cruising can assist in tailormaking a memorable cruise and tour holiday to this wonderful destination!

From San Jose, the base to explore outwardly, you can mountain bike through dense forested areas; swing through tropical rainforests on a thrilling zip-line canopy tour; get wet on a white-water rafting tour, which is a favoured day tour through lush tropical forests; hiking and kayaking trips are also a great day out, and for the true adventurers, there is also canyoning.

If you are looking for a little less adventure but want all the visual wonders, there are numerous aerial tram tours that whisk along the forest canopy in easy comfort and horse riding through the beautiful forest.

Discover the World Cruising also offer a choice of pre/post cruise hotels and can assist with arranging transfers between the airport and hotel and/or ship.

Contact Discover the World Cruising today as only a limited number of cabins on each cruise departure will attract these great savings!
