Feb 03, 2019 - National Geographic Quest
On our first day of voyage, National Geographic Quest anchored in front of a private reserve of Caletas Beach, a gorgeous segment of beach that is a perfect for outings. Several guests explored the trails of the reserve while others enjoyed a horseback ride along the coastline. In the afternoon we visited Corcovado National Park, a place where several species of endangered trees are under protection. Here we saw four to six flocks of scarlet macaws as well as the mantled howler monkey and a Central American spider monkey. The last of these is found only in undisturbed areas and because of that is often used as a gauge for ecological health in a given area. From there, we walked to the base of a local waterfall, which gave guests the opportunity to jump in and cool off.
And, of course, our first day in Costa Rica would not have been complete without a beautiful sunset to cap our visit to Corcovado Park.
