Looking for a game with an exploration theme for example themes include but not limited to: Lewis & Clark, Santa Fe Trail, Arctic Exploration

Ideally I would like it to have these criteria:

under 90 minutes
plays with 2 or 3 players (more is ok)
not an auction game
high replayability
not oop or hard to obtain or excessively expensive!

BTW, I already have Expedition:Northwest Passage and love it!

TIA!

Take a look at Archipelago.

The theme is "explore and settle in the New World." There is a small auction element to the game (who gets to decide player order), but mostly it is a worker placement and bluffing game with hidden scoring goals. The tiles you get to explore are gorgeous.

You might want to take a look at:

Roll to the South Pole

Expedition: Famous Explorers

Entdecker: Exploring New Horizons (although, I'm pretty sure this is out of print)

Lost Valley: The Yukon Goldrush 1896

Navegador - It also has a significant economic element, but has as much of an exploring feel as Lewis and Clark
Tikal - not played it, but I've read the rules and it looks like a good match.

Yes, Tikal is very good. There is also Tikal II: The Lost Temple. The original Tikal is a larger scale exploration game (you explore the jungle looking for temples and artifacts). Tikal II focuses on exploring inside one particular temple.
