Explore natural wonders, visit cosmopolitan cities and experience a daylight transit of the famed Panama Canal aboard the Hebridean Sky with faculty leaders Scott Pearson and Joel Simon, '74, MS '84.

Tropical treasures await. From the spectacular reefs of Panama’s Isla Coiba to the lush rain forests of Costa Rica’s Corcovado and Manuel Antonio National Parks, revel in the region’s abundant terrestrial and marine biodiversity. Well-preserved. Meet with the indigenous Emberá and Kuna tribal populations and learn about the customs and traditions passed down from their ancestors and conserved by every generation.
