Panama & Pre-Columbian treasures

In partnership with Cuisine et Vins de France.  

Through an exceptional itinerary, PONANT invites you to discover an unspoiled America where the past seems to have left a still intact, indelible mark.  

From Fuerte Amador, you will set sail aboard the L’Austral for a 10-day cruise from the wild islands in the Gulf of Panama to the legendary land of the Incas.

On the way to Ecuador, the L’Austral will stop in the Pearl Islands, which nestle in the Gulf of Panama. In the heart of this paradise, you will discover Mogo Mogo, a secret island with exceptional marine life.

L’Austral will then sail on to the magnificent Darien National Park in Panama. This little corner of paradise is a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to remarkable plants and wildlife. Sandy beaches, rocky coastlines, mangroves, swamps and tropical rainforests vie with each other for beauty and offer a feast for photographers. This will also be the occasion for meeting the astonishing semi-nomadic Emberas community.

You will then visit Santiago de Guayaquil, (‘the pearl of the Pacific’. This surprising city in Ecuador will enable you to reach Quito, a capital listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or Cuenca, a small city that time forgot, with colonial houses decorated with stucco.

When the ship arrives at Callao, you will be able to visit Peru’s main fishing and commercial seaport. From museums to old churches and stately mansions, the city also boasts a unique and rich architecture.
