Jan 01, 2018 - National Geographic Quest
On this first day of the year, we visited Golf Dulce located in the inner section of Osa Peninsula. Yesterday we explored the outer exposed section near Corcovado National Park. Today was a chance to learn about the culture of the “Ticos” who live in the countryside. Our guests visited local families who pan for gold, who make brown sugar from sugarcane on a sugarcane mill, who grow and harvest hearts of palm, and who cultivate and process chocolate. A very intense and interesting day, with many great sightings of local wildlife as well.
