    Isla de la Plata

    Mysterious natural treasures
    Your impressive expedition will take in eight countries featuring the most wonderful natural creations on earth, beginning with a natural beauty in Ecuador. Sir Francis Drake is said to have hidden a collection of silver on Isla de la Plata. You will not have to search for long to discover the true riches on a hike in Machalilla National Park: the bird life. A “Galapagos en miniature” with lava lizards, turkey vultures and rare blue-footed and Nazca gannets.

    Colombia (Isla Gorgona , Utria National Park )

    Find tracks, don’t leave them behind: visit the rainforest island of Isla Gorgona – once a base for pirates, then the “Alcatraz of Colombia” and now a nature reserve. When it comes to the diversity of flora and fauna, however, the island is surpassed by the virtually untouched rainforests of Utria National Park. This is one of the world’s greatest examples of biodiversity, with anteaters, howler and spider monkeys, wild cats, deer and other species. Which will you spot?

    Tuesday, 17.03.2015

    Isla de Coiba/Panama

    During a walk in the jungle or along the lagoon, the experts on board will continually hone your eye for unforgettable natural and animal sightings. This will allow you to view the natural beauty of Isla Coiba from another perspective, too. This is one of the many small, untouched islands in the national park designated a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site.

    Tuesday, 17.03.2015

    Costa Rica (Bahia Drake , Papagayo Peninsula )

    Costa Rica demonstrates in impressive fashion why its name means “rich coast” in Spanish. The natural treasures of Bahia Drake will prove as fascinating as the legendary privateer for whom the idyllic bay is named. The HANSEATIC will drop anchor here just as his ship did all that time ago. The destination: unforgettable moments on a hike in Corcovado National Park*, a pristine lowland rainforest. Alternatively, you can form a very special connection with nature during a horseback ride on the beach*. The HANSEATIC will allow you to discover the Papagayo Peninsula, a Garden of Eden with unspoilt beaches and considered Costa Rica’s untamed beauty of the Pacific coast.

    Tuesday, 17.03.2015

    San Juan del Sur/Nicaragua

    Your adventure in Nicaragua starts in San Juan del Sur, as it did for the prospectors who left from here for the USA in the times of the gold rush. On an excursion, you can discover the flair of colonial times and trace the footsteps of the conquistadors in Granada*. Or you can let yourself be enchanted by the impressive Masaya Volcano* and the Santiago crater, which regularly produces clouds of smoke.

    Tuesday, 17.03.2015

    Golfito/Golfo Dulce/Costa Rica

    Life is a little more peaceful in Costa Rica’s small coastal town of Golfito, where you can explore the picturesque beaches and pristine rainforest at your own pace.

    Daytime passage through the Panama Canal

The unforgettable daytime passage on board the HANSEATIC will take you past grassland, lush jungle and mangrove forests for over 80 km.

    Tuesday, 17.03.2015

    San Blas Islands/Panama

    This technical masterpiece is also South America’s breathtaking lifeline – and experience that lasts until you reach the Caribbean side of the San Blas Islands. The small autonomous island reserve of the Kuna indigenous people, famous for their elaborately decorated molas, shows its picture-book side on Isla Diablo. Even more colourful is the landscape of Curacao with its turquoise water.

    Scarborough/Tobago

    On Tobago, Scarborough will quell your yearning for relaxation on the Caribbean coast under an azure sky. “Hustle and bustle” is a foreign concept here. But the secrets of the huge trees, plants and tropical birds are much more familiar, as you will find out on a walk through the rainforest*. The marvels continue under the water on a trip in a glass-bottom boat* over diverse coral gardens.
