A pristine paradise and eco-wonderland to delight the senses, Costa Rica is the perfect destination for holidaymakers with an enthusiasm for the beauty and diversity of the natural world. Palm-strewn beaches, ethereal cloud forests and lush jungles home to a cornucopia of creatures such as spider monkeys, toucans and hummingbirds comprise a magical land at the exact geographical centre of the Americas. This exceptional tour adds unforgettable wildlife watching opportunities to the music and coffee culture of San Jose, the colonial splendour of Panama City and the astonishing engineering achievement of the Panama Canal, linking the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
This morning we take a tour of this fascinating city, first established in 1519. Our first stop is at the UNESCO World Heritage listed Panama Viejo Historic Monument Complex, where the remains of the oldest European settlement on the Pacific Coast of the Americas are preserved. Later we continue to a small, bustling marketplace, before travelling on to the Historic District, with some delightful colonial architecture. Here we take a walking tour to view the Palace of the President, The Cathedral and San Jose Church. Our final stop on the tour is at the Causeway, which provides wonderful views of both the Panama City skyline and the Miraflores locks of the Panama Canal.
