2014 marked the 100th year since the Panama Canal first opened its interoceanic route – a U.S. Army Corps of Engineering feat that put Panama at the center of global trade. Combine the fun of Tauck's Costa Rica tours with a Panama Canal cruise on our 11-day The Panama Canal & Costa Rica and enjoy up-close discoveries of amazing wildlife, fascinating centuries-old cultures and man-made marvels, and two-night stays in Panama City and San José. A 6-night voyage aboard the newly renovated yacht m/v Tere Moana includes a complete transit of the Panama Canal, and an opportunity for cultural exchange with locals. Explore the rich interior and its abundant wildlife with our expert naturalists. Go swimming or snorkeling, land on white sand beaches via Zodiac craft, visit a gold museum in San José and learn how coffee beans are harvested and brewed to perfection. Experience the best of our Costa Rica tours with the pleasures of Tauck small ship cruising through the Panama Canal!
