Today we visited the outstanding Corcovado National Park – one of the true gems in the beautiful country of Costa Rica. We first dropped anchor in Caletas beach, and in no time after we landed guest ashore, we saw a troop of white-faced Capuchins monkeys graciously swinging between the trees in front of the property on which we walk.

We had guests taking the power walk that covered the better part of four miles. In addition, we offered a forest hike and perimeter walk, each allowing great exposure to the coastal habitat and the rainforest respectively.

We got back and had lunch in the boat, we reposition in the San Pedrillo station later in the afternoon, and we offered two activities the waterfall hike and the Pargo trail that is a flat walk and both trips paid off. We got to walk through the beautiful mature old growth forest, and they were sightings of mantled howler and spider monkeys which makes three of the four monkey species inhabiting Costa Rica: not a bad way to begin our adventure aboard National Geographic Quest.
