UnCruise Adventures launches new sailings to Costa Rica and Panama

UnCruise Adventures has added Central America to its network of destinations, after announcing a new expedition to Costa Rica and Panama. Starting in October, 2016, the 62-passenger Safari Voyager ship will set off to explore the destinations on seven-night sailings.

Starting in Costa Rica’s capital San Jose, the Uncharted Isthmus! expedition will travel down to Panama City, through the Panama Canal and its new locks. Guests will have plenty of opportunities to see the local sights during the trip, including the Manuel Antonio National Park, Curu National Wildlife Refuge, Osa Conservation Area, Golfo Dulce and Granito de Oro in Coiba National Park. As well as scheduled trips, there will be numerous activities available including snorkelling, paddle boarding, and kayaking, and guests can enjoy a zodiac landing to shore where they can head off on hikes.

Along the way, holidaymakers will have the chance to see the local wildlife in both Central American countries during their dry and green season. These include sightings of humpback whales, iguanas, butterflies, sea turtles, ruby throated hummingbirds, and roseate spoonbills.

The cruise company has also launched themed itineraries for the sailings including a photography sailing on 3rd December, 2016 and a Chairman’s Cruise with the owners of the company on 10th December, 2016. Next year, there will be new eight-night exclusive sailings to Panama, eight-night roundtrip sailings to Costa Rica, and 15-night combination sailings that will visit the best of both countries.

During these insightful trips, holidaymakers will have the chance to visit Fort San Lorenzo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Papagayo Gulf and Santa Rosa National Park, the Arenal Volcano, and the Panama Canal and its museum. Guests can also stay on land at the Bristol Hotel in Panama City or the Intercontinental Hotel in Costa Rica. On-board the vessel, guests can enjoy fine dining, a dip in the hot tub, reading or board games in the lounge, or stargazing on the deck.

The scheduled sailings include the Uncharted Isthmus! Sloths, Monkeys & Mangroves trips between 19th November, 2016 and 22nd April, 2017; Pure Panama: Cultures, Coasts & Canal cruise from 28th April, 2017; and the Ultimate Costa Rica & Panama voyage from 21st April, 2017.

The company operates voyages in destinations across the Americas including Alaska, Hawaii, Columbia, Mexico, the Pacific Northwest, and the Galapagos.
