  • Costa Rica, Panama & Colombia

Today, on the second day of our journey through Costa Rica and Panama, we woke up inside the calm waters of the Golfo Dulce, the southernmost gulf. Surrounded by beautiful mountains, green lush vegetation and exuberant forests; the Gulf is home to wildlife, but most importantly to 7,000 Costa Ricans that make a living mostly out of agriculture and tourism. We visited five projects: a. Gold panning and sugar mill combo, b. the Jacana/hearts of palm project, c. the Cacao-Kobo farm, and d. the Danta lodge trail.
