Earth Journeys, created by Tauck and BBC Earth! The Panama Canal & Costa Rica joins our Earth Journeys collection featuring custom-made BBC Earth on-tour film vignettes and when the opportunity arises, the use of field equipment.

A 7-night voyage aboard Windstar's classic four-masted yacht, Wind Star, includes a complete transit of the Panama Canal, and an opportunity for cultural exchange with locals along Costa Rica's Pacific coast. Explore the rich interior and its abundant wildlife with our expert naturalists. Go swimming or snorkeling, land on islands via tender or Zodiac craft, visit a gold museum in San José and learn how coffee beans are harvested and brewed to perfection.
