Explore the Caribbean the “Hurtigruten way”. Discover the history of the mysterious Mayans by exploring fascinating ruins, hiking and snorkelling in crystal clear waters by small islands, atolls and reefs, kayaking along pristine coastlines, hiking into the jungle or cruising rivers to spot amazing wildlife.
If you think an ordinary cruise in the Caribbean is boring and not active enough, then our Caribbean expedition might be the thing for you! See seven different countries, two UNESCO Heritage Sites, visit mysterious Mayans ruins, venture into the jungle and snorkel in crystal clear waters. Discover topical paradise islands, Puerto Limon, Belize, Key West and Miami - all in one expedition.
Starting in Puerto Limon in Costa Rica, you can explore this compelling destination for adventurers before embarking on MS Fram. After a day at sea, you find yourself in the Guna Yala provence where you can meet the indigenous people of Panama and Colombia, the Kuna people.
Then we explore the UNESCO site Fort San Lorenzo and the Panama Canal Expansion. In Bocas del Toro and the Bastemintos National Park, you can dive and kayak among mangroves and coral reefs as well as hike through the rainforest in search of wildlife. On Isla de Provedencia and Corn Island, enjoy snorkelling amongst tropical fishes, feasting on barbecued lobster on the beach and experiencing creole traditions and way of life.
Explore Cayos Cochinos, a part of the world’s second largest coral reef, either by snorkelling or kayaking, or by walking in the stunning nature of the islands. Next we sail to Belize, and you can venture into the jungle to discover the Mayan ruins of Lamanai. These ruins are known both for their impressive architecture and marvellous setting, surrounded by dense rainforest.
Then divers and snorkelers are in for an adventure as we reach Lighthouse reef with more than 20 world-famous dive and snorkelling sites. Close to Playa del Carmen is the ancient Mayan city of Tulum. This walled Mayan city is spectacularly set on a cliff, overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
Travelling further north, we stop by Key West to enjoy this tropical island city and its world-renowned sunset before ending this expedition in magical Miami.
