Day 8 Balboa, Panama

This port marks the entrance to the Panama Canal on the Pacific coast and takes its name from the Spaniard Vasco Nunez de Balboa. Here you are free to explore the Miraflores locks or simply to relax in the lovely "casco Viejo" visiting elegant monuments such as San Jose Church, the Santo Domingo Convent and Plaza de Francia

In the late afternoon, crossing Panama Canal: Construction of this engineering miracle began in 1881 under Ferdinand de Lesseps, French architect and was achieved by an American one in 1914. While our exact transit time through this 51 mile-long cannot be guaranteed, your crossing is sure to be a treasured highlight of this cruise any time of the day or night.

Day 9 San Blas, Panama

The San Blas Islands conceal a little-known secret world: that of the Kunas Amerindians. Between these unspoiled islands fringed by palm trees, people still travel in dugout canoes. The women here make “molas”, gorgeous brightly coloured fabrics with geometric motifs.

Day 10 Cartagena, Columbia

Cartagena is a former bastion of the Spanish Empire where gold pillaged from the Aztec and Inca empires was stored before being shipped to Spain. A UNESCO World Heritage site, this is a fascinating place to explore as its streets have retained all the charm of the town’s heroic period.

Day 11 At Sea

Day 12 Willemstad, Curacao, Dutch West Indies

Off the Venezuelan coast lie the leeward islands of the Dutch West Indies, with wonderfully evocative names like Curacao with its white sandy beaches lying at the foot of Mount Christofel. The island’s capital of Willemstad has retained a very special ambiance while attractive buildings from the colonial period seem to suddenly appear on every corner and square of the old district.

Day 13 At Sea

Day 14 Castries, St Lucia / Fort de France, Martinique

Port details pending.

Day 15 Fort de France, Martinique / Disembark

Disembark this morning for your continued journey home.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
