  • Aboard the National Geographic Quest
  • Costa Rica, Panama & Colombia

What an exciting day! it was our first day in Panama and we are ready for some beach time and for snorkeling, Granito de Oro it’s the best spots in this region for snorkeling and we sure got to see a lot. The water was very clear, the tide was right, and the day was not too hot; such perfect conditions to fully enjoy our day.

Coiba National Park: It’s the biggest marine park in the Easter Pacific with multiple islands, pristine beaches and crystal-clear water that all make it a prime destination of choice for nature lovers. The island remains well preserved from its former years as penal colony, now illustrating some of the best of Panamanian conservation today.
