PONANT brings you a brand-new itinerary in the Caribbean Sea, sailing from the Mexican peninsula of Yucatán to Colón in Panama.
In Puerto Morelos, Cancún’s port, you will board Le Champlain for an 8-day cruise combining idyllic beaches and Pre-Columbian sites.
From Puerto Morelos, don’t miss the opportunity to visit the archaeological site of Chichén Itzá, without doubt one of the most beautiful testimonies of Maya civilisation.
Your ship will first call in Providencia, a small volcanic island off Nicaragua which was once a refuge for buccaneers. Then you will reach Puerto Limón, not far from the island named Tortuguero. Literally “the Land of Turtles”, the village and the National Park are key nesting sites for four species of sea turtle, including two critically endangered species.
Your ship will then set sail for the clear waters of Panama and the San Blas archipelago, composed of more than 300 islands and cays. Here, surrounded by palm trees and dugout canoes, you will discover the crafts and culture of the Kuna people.
