Playa Blanca, Golfo Dulce

Dec 19, 2017 - National Geographic Quest

Today was our last day in Costa Rica. We had an early start since there were different activities to choose from. Our guests had great opportunities for sociocultural experiences like visiting a rural chocolate plantation, sugar cane production, family gold panning, and a hike into a biological station. In all of these activities they had the chance to learn about the way of producing things, ways of living, nature photo opportunities, and also about medicinal plants. And of course there were great surprises such as dolphins that came to play around our ship.
