Description

Where can you find world-famous coffee, surfing, and snorkelling? Well, technically this is a trick question because Costa Rica and Panama can both raise their hands for this one. This 16-day tour combines the best of activity hubs like Boquete and La Fortuna, with time to chill – or test your board skills – at the beach. From rainforests to the Panama Canal, this is the perfect Central America intro (or refresher) that’ll give your wallet a breather.
