Setting sail from Colón
Situated at the Atlantic entrance to the Panama Canal, Colón takes its name from Christopher Columbus, known in Spanish as Cristóbal Colón, although it's hard to imagine the famous explorer would find much reason to linger here nowadays. Once a thriving port, the city is now in a state of seemingly terminal decline, its colonial architecture crumbling and the modern city beset by social problems. It's not somewhere you will want to hang around for long, and serves merely as a gateway to the Canal, which will carry you to much nicer places.
The Historical Panama Canal Railway goes from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast – the journey time is about one hour, and the views are amazing.
Panama: Isla Parida
Costa Rica: Quepos
The little town of Quepos is the gateway to Manuel Antonio National Park, a nature-lover’s paradise that’s home to monkeys, iguanas and the reclusive three-toed sloth. The area around Quepos also boasts some of the best beaches in Costa Rica, and the town itself has some nice restaurants.
Costa Rica: Herradura
Arriving in Puerto Caldera
Your home from home
Recent additions to the Windstar fleet, these former Seabourn ships are hugely popular little vessels, for good reason.
What we love
These small ships accommodate just 212 guests in large and recently refurbished all suite accommodation. There's a choice of restaurants and comfortable lounges and plenty of deck space. The ship's marina ensures you can enjoy the complimentary watersports when anchored in hidden bays and tiny coves.
