Tauck is expanding its Earth Journeys partnership with nature documentary filmmakers at BBC Earth to include three trips to Costa Rica.

The three itineraries will be enhanced with exclusive content provided through the BBC Earth partnership. The Costa Rica itineraries include the 8-day Costa Rica Adventure, the 8-day Costa Rica: Jungles & Rainforests, and the 11-day Panama Canal & Costa Rica land/cruise journey, which starts with a 2-night hotel stay and guided sightseeing in San Jose followed by a 6-night cruise aboard the M/V Tere Moana, and ends with a 2-night hotel stay and guided tour in Panama City.

Starting next year, Tauck’s Costa Rica itineraries will feature various original, exclusive films by BBC Earth that Tauck guests will view on location. These 10-20 minute videos will provide added context and perspective on the animal life and natural wonders guests will experience on their travels. In addition, Tauck directors who accompany the Costa Rica itineraries will also guide guests as they use the same cutting-edge technologies the BBC Earth filmmakers use in making their films.
