Jan 01, 2019 - National Geographic Quest
Today marks a new year, and what a wonderful way to welcome it! National Geographic Quest arrived in Coiba National park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located off the Eastern Pacific Coast. We had a long cruise from the bay of Panama to this beautiful destination.
We geared up and visited Granito de Oro. Our guests had the opportunity to go ashore and snorkel in the warm waters of this islet. Here, we observed various schools of fish of different colors, sea turtles, moray eels and Pacific starfish. Guests also had the chance to go paddleboarding or kayaking around this tropical paradise.
After all the water activities, we headed back for a great lunch. Later, guests went on a hike in the main island to explore one of the best-preserved tropical rainforests. Nearly 80% of the island is Panamanian virgin rainforest.
This was an excellent way to say farewell to Panama and start the new year. We will now make our way to Costa Rica.
