We’re off for our flight to sunny Fort Lauderdale to embark on an amazing cruise aboard Holland America’s ms Zaandam bound for the fascinating Panama Canal, one of the world’s engineering masterpieces. We’ll enjoy sailing along the Florida coast, transiting the Panama Canal and discovering the color, culture and sunny disposition of Mexico. Our cruise ends in San Diego, where we’ll board our flight home.

The Panama Canal has always inspired wonder. Now the “Big Ditch” is getting even bigger, with yet another set of locks and wider shipping lanes to accommodate today’s super-size ships. Come experience history in the re-making as our luxurious mid-size ship easily navigates the original locks, its illustrious story brought to life by an onboard Canal commentator. See the sunny beaches and lush rain forests on either side.

WILLEMSTAD, CURACAO

Established by the Dutch, Curacao is located in the Southern Caribbean Sea near the tip of South America. The lively capital city of Willemstad, with its colorful, colonial architecture, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

PANAMA CANAL

The wonders of this 51-mile engineering feat continue as the Panama Canal celebrates its 102nd anniversary.

PUERTO CALDERA, COSTA RICA

This small town makes for an ideal base from which to venture out to explore the country’s multiple national parks. Activities include snapping photos of gushing waterfalls, sightseeing near active volcanoes, bird-watching in nature reserves and sanctuaries, and horseback riding on Pacific beaches. Enjoy shopping for local handicrafts as well as sampling traditional Tico cuisine, especially gallo pinto-a combination of rice and beans eaten any time of the day or night.

CORINTO, NICARAGUA

Nicaragua is the next great spot for cultural and culinary tourism. The port town of Corinto boasts colonial-era architecture, and is close to Leon, the beautiful city established by Spanish conquistadores in 1524. Be sure to sample the traditional dish called vigoron, a hearty plate heaped with pork, boiled yuca and cabbage salad.

PUERTO QUETZAL, GUATEMALA

In the cultured little country of Guatemala, modern Maya still weave their stories on backstrap looms, and the great stone temples of Tikal stand in silent testament to ancient Mayan ingenuity.

PUERTO CHIAPAS, MEXICO

he Pacific gateway to the Mayan world, this port offers excursions to coffee plantations and botanical gardens, as well as the Izapa River.

HUATULCO, MEXICO

Warm sun, sandy beaches and nine beautiful bays in every shade of blue await. Jungles teem with birds and are the nesting grounds of endangered sea turtles.

MANZANILLO, MEXICO

The busiest seaport in Mexico is home to peaceful bays, a tropical climate, and is the sailfish capital of the world.

PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO

“PV” (as it is affectionately known) retains the essence of the fishing village it once was. Viejo Vallarta, the old town, is a mix of red-tiled buildings, cobbled streets, chic shops and busy open markets.

Stunning historic sites, beautiful beaches, and famous rock formations at Land’s End make this a popular vacation destination.
