After cruising during the night from Costa Rica, we arrived to Panama’s most precious marine park. Coiba National Park is part of a very important marine corridor that connects the countries of Costa Rica with Colombia and Ecuador. In its marine area is found the second biggest coral reef of the Tropical Eastern Pacific.

This morning, our guests had the options to hike one of the trails on the main Island and to enjoy the tropical waters that surrounded a small islet called “Granito de Oro.” They were all rewarded with great sightings of the biodiversity of the area. A healthy coral reef displayed colorful fishes, sea turtles as well as major predators like white tipped sharks.

We all enjoyed the whole morning in this paradise. During lunch, we weighed anchor an began to cruise towards our next day’s destination, Bona Island and the Panama Canal.
