After a smooth navigation westward, we arrived at Costa Rica. Either by kayaks or by Zodiacs, every single guest got to enjoy the richness of this tropical deep-water golf surrounded by an exuberant and bountiful forest.

From herons to the distant roar of howler monkeys, the morning passed infused with great moment in our first contact with this new destination.

After a short afternoon shower, we landed at Casa Orquideas to watch dozens of yellow-throated toucans rejoicing themselves in the last drops of rain. The wet paths were no obstacle to visit, birdwatch, taste some medicinal plants and fruits from this decades-old botanical garden, manicured just enough for visitors to enjoy both native and exotic plants and the always-present birds.
