Costa Rica to Peru Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Puerto Caldera (Costa Rica)

Fly from the UK for an overnight stay in a luxurious hotel. Regional airports are available on request.

Day 2 - Puerto Caldera

Transfer to Scenic Eclipse in the early afternoon, your home away from home and platform to explore beautiful Costa Rica and Panama.

Day 3 - Isla Tortugas - Curu National Park

This morning, you awake in a tropical paradise, Isla Tortugas. Remote and pristine, it will ease you gently into your Costa Rica adventure, with unspoiled white beaches and snorkelling. Very few visitors will experience the wonder of Curu: ocelots, puma, margay cats, collared peccari, coyote, anteaters and otters roam this island; in the trees look for howler and capuchin monkeys and over 232 species for birds. This very special and exclusive access shows man and wildlife can live side by side.

Day 4 - Quepos

Whether a wildlife lover, thrill seeker or budding chef, today we have an array of activities that will suit you.

Day 5 - At Sea

Enjoy a relaxed day at sea on board Scenic Eclipse. There is ample time to rejuvenate; why not choose a class in one of the fitness spaces or try one of the therapy lounges in the Spa Sanctuary?

Day 6 - Darién National Park (Panama)

Darien National Park is one of the most important World Heritage-listed sites in Central America and is only accessible by water on a small ship. A natural bridge spanning the two Americas, it houses a myriad of habitats, ranging from rocky coastlines and sandy beaches to mangroves. It is one of the few remaining examples in the world of a protected area inhabited by humans.

Day 7 - Utria National Park - Nuquia Harbour (Colombia)

Sitting on Colombia's Pacific coast is the lush tract of Utria National Park. From coral reefs and mangroves in the marine realm, to tropical rainforest and rocky beaches where sea turtles come to lay their eggs, few places in the world encompass the diversity of Utria's ecosystems.

Day 8 - At Sea

Relaxation beckons with so many choices on board you will wonder how time passes so quickly. Choose one of the daily activities including a class in Scenic Epicure, join an entertaining discussion in the Theatre, or make time for your own fitness regime.

Day 9 - Isla de la Plata (Ecuador)

Isla de la Plata is a small island off Ecuador's central coast. Part of Machalilla National Park, the uninhabited island features beaches, headlands and shrub land. It is known for its many marine birds, like the blue-footed and masked boobies.

Day 10 - At Sea

Today the relaxation continues. Try a game of bridge or canasta in the Observatory or tempt your palate with a wine tasting with the Sommelier in Scenic Epicure.
