Crossing the Panama Canal is more than a journey - it is a rite of passage. Rolling hills, high mountains and riverbeds are just part of the gorgeous landscape you can explore when sightseeing in Costa Rica. Stroll along charming cobblestone streets in the colonial city of Antigua in Puerto Quetzal. And when you arrive in Cartagena, make sure you visit the largest Spanish fort in the New World - San Felipe de Barajas ¬- built in the 17th century.
