Caribbean mosaic, between mangroves & lagoons on Le Dumont d'Urville
From Belize City, PONANT invites you to board Le Dumont-d'Urville for a brand-new 8-day expedition cruise to discover the lush landscapes and beautiful shores of Honduras, Guatemala and Belize.
Your ship will set sail to Punta Sal and the Jeannette Kawas National Park. This idyllic haven offers a formidable panorama of the biodiversity in Honduras, between the lush vegetation of the tropical rainforest and the rich marine ecosystem.
You will continue your odyssey towards the Bay Islands and Les Cayos Cochinos, a small archipelago classified as a marine reserve in 1994 and located on the world’s second-largest coral reef. Let yourself fall under the spell of these idyllic shores, which are among the Caribbean’s most beautiful coastlines.
A wild corner of the Caribbean coast at the confluence of several rivers, the green jungle of the Cuero y Salado National Park is home to exceptionally diverse fauna.
You will then call at Water Caye, which offers wonderful scuba diving opportunities to explore the treasures of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System.
Your ship will then sail to Livingston, Guatemala, the heart of Garifuna country, which proudly perpetuates an original culture and a music that is listed as a UNESCO heritage site.
Finally you will reach Belize. From the attractive little town of Punta Gorda, the Mayan civilisation will reveal itself around its ancestral traditions.
Then your ship will finally set sail for Belize City, the end of an exceptional cruise.
