Tropical, verdant and bustling with wildlife, the jungles and islands of Panama and Colombia are breath-taking. Explore unique marine and bird life and discover the coastlines by Zodiac*, kayak and snorkel. A highlight will be meeting the Embera and Kuna communities, and the Afro-Colombian communities of the Utría National Park.

Begin amid the 16th-century heritage of Cartagena, a colourful port city on Colombia’s exotic Pacific Coast. Here, you’ll savour a luxury one-night Special Stay in the heart of the city, before boarding our ultra-luxury Discovery Yacht to begin your epic journey into the wonder of the Americas.

Welcome to San Blas Islands, a pristine archipelago wrapped in turquoise waters, and home to some of the Caribbean’s most esteemed coral reefs. Take your pick from a choice of special discovery excursions, snorkelling beneath the waves to meet rare marine life, or exploring hidden coves and caves by kayak.

Travelling southward, venture into the wilds of Utría, and here trek the virgin rainforests in the company of our expert Discovery Team, or dip beneath the waves by submarine to search for migrating humpback whales. That night sees you enjoy a special performance of Afro-Pacific music and dance by the local residents of El Valle on one of the park’s pristine white-sand beaches – a Scenic Enrich experience which promises to be one of the highlights of your journey.
