Isla Murciélago-Junquillal Wildlife Refuge

Dec 08, 2019 - National Geographic Sea Lion

Today, National Geographic Sea Lion has reached Isla Murciélago. The island is part of Santa Rosa National Park. Our guests had the chance to go snorkeling and on hikes in order to enjoy the beautiful views from the lookouts.

Later, in the afternoon, the ship was repositioned to Junquillal Wildlife Refuge. Zodiac cruises and walking on the beach were the choices to look for shorebirds and other wildlife.
