Le Ponant Cruise

Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica to Curacao, Antilles

April 1-8, 2015
8 days / 7 nights on board

  • Aboard LE BORÉAL, experience something unique: sailing through the Panama Canal:

    Sail from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean. This cruise will also offer you the opportunity to discover the Darien and meet the Emberas Indians.

    The Panama Canal: Come and discover this example of engineering prowess. The canal crosses the Isthmus of Panama and connects the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. It includes three levels of locks and raises ships to the level of Lake Gatun, almost as if the water were an elevator, allowing them to avoid having to round Cape Horn.

    An exceptional visit to the Darien jungle: Discover this region in Zodiac® dinghies and local “cayucas”, guided by our team of naturalists. Sail up the Mogue River to find Emberas Indians.

  • Cartagena. The former colonial city, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
