Dec 09, 2018 - National Geographic Quest
Our first day exploring Costa Rica began by visiting a remote area called Caletas Beach. Nearby Drake’s Bay, this place is part of a buffer zone that connects with Corcovado National Park. A lush tropical forest could be seen from National Geographic Quest.
Here we offered a variety of activities for our guests, including horseback riding along the coastline.
The second part of the afternoon we visited the San Pedrillo area in Corcovado National Park. This place has several trails and our guests could explore whatever they desired. One of the trails led to a waterfall. After walking up and over a muddy trail, the waterfall was wonderful to see! Everyone had a wonderful time enjoying a refreshing dip in the waterhole.
Overall the day offered the chance to see Central American howler and spider monkeys, American crocodiles and many species of birds, such as the scarlet macaw and
A lovely sunset crowned this first day once we were already back onboard National Geographic Quest. It was a great way to begin our journey through Costa Rica and Panama.
