My husband, Bill, and I took a great tour to Panama, “A Continent Divided, Oceans United,” with Overseas Adventure Travel (Cambridge, MA; 800/493-6824), April 18-May 1, 2010. A good value — the 11-day trip cost $3,495 including air from San Francisco, and a pretrip cost $595.

We saw a great deal of the country, from the skyscrapers of Panama City to the village of the Embera Indians. On a beautiful catamaran with 12 cabins, we took a three-day cruise through the canal that included overnight stops at Portobelo, Gatun Lake and Toboga Island.

On the three-day pretrip, we visited Bocas del Toro, where we snorkeled, photographed dolphins and visited Bird Island.
