Take the scenic route from New York City from San Francisco on a 21-day trip of a lifetime through the Panama Canal. Before departing the City by the Bay, ride a cable car up the steep streets for magnificent views of San Francisco or tour the notorious Alcatraz. Off the coast of Cabo San Lucas, snorkel in a quiet cove or go in search of migrating gray whales. Whilst in Puntarenas, behold the rainforest canopy, whether you walk through it or ride an aerial tram. Then spend a day transiting through the Panama Canal, making your way through the locks and emerging in the Caribbean Sea. In Santa Marta, Colombia, explore the Ciudad Perdida, or "Lost City," believed to have been founded 650 years before Peru's Machu Picchu. And surround yourself with a rainbow of tropical fish whilst snorkelling off the coast of Bonaire.
