Caletas Beach and Corcovado National Park

Dec 17, 2017 - National Geographic Quest


This morning, after anchoring in front of Caletas Beach, some of our guests enjoyed nature walks on a private reserve while others explored the coastline on a horseback ride on a beautiful sunny day. Later, we had the opportunity to visit Corcovado National Park where some guests had the opportunity to enjoy the refreshing water on the waterfall walk and some others had very good opportunities for nature photography.  White-lipped peccary, scarlet macaws, and white-faced and spider monkeys were some of the wildlife our guests enjoyed today in this incredible area.

About the Author

Maguil Céspedes

Naturalist

Although Maguil was born in San Jose, he was raised in the countryside of Costa Rica, and it was this experience that provided him with a deep knowledge of and a profound love for the rural life of Central America.  It was this passion for nature that led Maguil to study biology at the University of Costa Rica, where he received his master’s degree in 2002. His thesis explored the genetic structure of big leaf mahogany, an endangered species of tree that is commercially extinct in much of Central America.
