DEAR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS,
Costa Rica and Panama are two of the most beautiful and wildly diverse natural places on the planet. The region is home to iconic wildlife—brilliant macaws, howler and capuchin monkeys, sloths, vibrantly colored butterflies, and strange frogs as well as thousands of species of flora, including dazzling orchids.

Costa Rica & The Panama Canal Expedition

Traveling by expedition ship ensures you the best way to experience the rain forests, beaches, idyllic isles, and the historic Panama Canal. With the 100-guest National Geographic Quest as your mobile base camp, you’ll not only see and do more, but also have experiences you couldn’t otherwise have—like transiting the canal over the course
of two days, and visiting Barro Colorado Nature Monument. You’ll learn the history of the Panama Canal, and also experience Panama—a lush tropical wonderland. And, you’ll discover Costa Rica as an active explorer, not a tourist. Our itinerary brings you deeper into the authentic, “Pura Vida” of Costa Rica—including a visit to the Osa Peninsula, where you’ll meet welcoming locals making their living as they preserve their country’s legendary natural beauty.

The Quest is equipped with Zodiacs, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and snorkeling gear, all key to experiencing the region’s diversity. An expert expedition team accompanies you and helps you spot the multitude of mammals, birds, and insects hidden in the dense forest canopy. And you’ll benefit from the onboard Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor who will help you take your best shots ever.

Few have the opportunity to experience the rare wildness of Costa Rica and Panama the way you will on this exceptional expedition. I invite you to join us this December. To make your reservation, please return the enclosed reservation form or call 800-252-4910.

Sincerely,
