It may be a bit pricey but it’s one helluva way to explore Panama, especially in the more inaccessible areas. I’m talking about having a small adventure-type cruise ship. Unlike the huge “Love Boat”-style cruise ships, these smaller versions can only accommodate 100 passengers. With less people around, you’ll have an intimate and eco-friendly experience with the place you will visit. What’s more, the trip emphasizes adventure travel and on learning about the place they visit. You get to do water skiing, scuba diving, snorkeling and other sports that lets you explore the (safe) waters. These cruises are frequently held during the dry season. For me, I would recommend it to people who aren’t the outdoorsy types but would love to chew on the scenery.
The following are some of the more popular cruise operations:
