This is a unique expedition voyage along the Andean coast from Chile to Costa Rica onboard Albatros Expeditions’ new-built luxury vessel, Ocean Victory. Visiting coastal towns and nature reserves you will get an impeccable insight into the rich archaeological, modern as well as natural history of Chile, Peru and Ecuador. Added to this is the dense tropical jungle, white sandy beaches and stunning wildlife on the coastal islands of Panama and Costa Rica. An expedition cruise of a lifetime!
Setting out from colorful Valparaíso we sail north to the lovely towns of Coquimbo, Iquique and Arica in northern Chile. While in Callao, Peru, it is possible to visit the capital Lima. We will visit popular Manta while in Ecuador, and our ship will anchor off Isla de la Plata, a national park known as a mini-Galapagos. We cross the Golf of Panama to reach the beach and jungle islands of Granito de Oro & Coiba in Panama as well as Golfito Bay in Costa Rica, where the term Paradise is an understatement.
Disembarking in the Costa Rica port of Puntarenas, we get the last impression of this beautiful counrty on our way to San José, the airport and homebound flight.
