Granito de Oro Islet and Sendero de los Monos, Coiba Island National Park, Panama

Dec 12, 2017 - National Geographic Quest


Today we spent the day in the gorgeous Coiba National Park of Panama. We had the opportunity to relax on a beautiful white sand beach located in an islet called Granito de Oro (Grain of Gold), go kayaking, stand up paddle board and, of course, try some snorkeling. In the afternoon, guests had the choice to go back to the beach again or join a nature walk in Sendero de los Monos (The Monkeys Trail) in the main island of Coiba.
