Get Your Feet Wet

On January 14, 2011 Gail Rosselot, ANP, CTC, FAANP and I will be escorting a group aboard Cruise West’s “Pacific Explorer” through Panama and Costa Rica. This 9-day 10-night cruise begins in Panama, transits through the Panama Canal and heads along the Pacific coast north toward Costa Rica’s beautiful Los Suenos Marina. We are offering a continuing education program in travel medicine for primary care providers and those in travel medicine.

Highlights of the trip include swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking and visiting botanical gardens, national parks, and spending the day with an indigenous tribe only accessible by Zodiac boats.

This trip of a lifetime is open to those with a sense of adventure and although workshops will be offered to NP’s, PA’s, RN’s and MD’s. But anyone interested in exploring Central America is welcome to join the group (even if you decide not to participate in the conference) and group discounts apply to all.

I have traveled with Cruise West and I am impressed with the level of service they offer. The ship’s capacity is 100 passengers. Everyone is so friendly and the naturalists onboard are are so well informed about the local wildlife, birds, peoples and culture. The solo traveler as well as the one who brings friends or family will all feel welcome.

Unpack once and be prepared to be awed by the beauty that is all around you. The rates include everything except alcohol, and tips are not required or expected. It is such a relaxing way to travel.

This is not a typical cruise ship. Getting dressed up for dinner means putting shorts on over your bathing suit. Space is limited so sign up today.
