2024 Costa Rica & The Panama Canal – Puerto Caldera to Colon
2024 Costa Rica & The Panama Canal – Puerto Caldera to Colon

February 24, 2024 – March 2, 2024

Please join us on a NHA Plant Based Group Cruise on the Wind Star, a 4-masted motor sailing yacht accommodating 148 guests (73 staterooms). 

See the Panama Canal for the amazing engineering feat it truly is as you enjoy a unique small-ship view of the canal, locks, and Lake Gatun as a Canal Historian describes each phase of your journey. And get closer to the best wildlife-watching areas, like Bahia Drake where you’ll take a Zodiac ashore to access Corcovado National Park. Our onboard local Naturalist provides tips on how to watch for birds, monkeys, and species found nowhere else on earth. When you need a break from adventure (if you ever do), relax on uninhabited white-sand beaches and snorkel stunning reefs in Windstar-exclusive destinations like Isla Parida.

The cruise price for double occupancy ranges from $3,231-$3,801 per person double occupancy and $5,302-$6,300 per person single occupancy (after taxes and port fees). This price does not include airfare. Whole food plant-based meals on the ship will be prepared without added salt, oil or sugar.

The Windstar staff is amazing; the ship is gorgeous with spacious staterooms, and the WFPB, SOS Free and Gluten Free buffet meals are fantastic.

If you book a double occupancy stateroom with our group, you will receive:
10% discount (factored into pricing above) and $100.00 per person Group ship board credit.
