32 CENTRAL AMERICAN DISCOVERY 26th February 2017 • 28 nights • Sails from Callao (ends Southampton) Boudicca • Cruise ID: D170221 Fascinating culture and history abound on this exploration of Peru, Ecuador and Central America. Discover the Peruvian capital, Lima; transit the Panama Canal; roam the cobbled streets of Havana; admire Mayan ruins in Mexico and Belize; and more. Belize Tulum Ruins Fly to Peru and join Boudicca in Callao, from where you’ll have the chance to unearth history in the capital, Lima, before setting sail. For those who wish to explore even more of the city, there’s the option of a pre-cruise holiday extension: spend two nights discovering the sights of Lima, or indulge in a fully escorted five-night tour which takes in the cultural city of Cusco as well as the mysterious ruins of Machu Picchu. Ecuador follows... your call into Manta is perfect for trips to Montecristi, home of the Panama Hat; or the tropical Pacoche Forest, bursting with flora and fauna. Next is an experience on many people’s ‘must-do’ list – the Panama Canal. It’s one of earth’s greatest engineering marvels, stretching 48 miles across the continental divide from Panama City to Colón. Boudicca will take you on a journey through three great locks and across Gatún Lake, which is surrounded by untouched, dense rainforest. You’ll then enjoy a day in one of Latin America’s oldest cities, Puerto Limón, where bustling markets and miles of gorgeous Costa Rican coastline await your exploration; before sailing to Belize City, home to a tightly-packed jumble of narrow streets and canals. The following day brings Cozumel, where you’ll have the chance to see some of the island’s 40 shrines to Ixchel – the Mayan goddess of the moon, sea and fertility – and snorkel alongside the tropical sea life in the world’s second largest barrier reef. Alternatively, extended tours offer the chance to step back in time on a visit to the Mayan city of Tulum, or see one of the New Seven Wonders of the World – the Pyramid of Kukulcan – in the legendary ruins of Chichén Itzá. Before sailing home via the beach-laden Bahamas and Bermuda, and the emerald-green Azores, you’ll get to enjoy time in Cuba’s capital, Havana. Famed for cigars and the Communist Revolution, the cobbled streets and squares of this culture-rich city feature engrossing architecture, interspersed with the bright colours of classic American cars.
