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

National Geographic Quest anchor in front of Playa Blanca as the sun rose over Golfo Dulce. A little later and after breakfast we landed at the beach using the Zodiacs, and from here we began the exploration of the area using buses. Some visit the gold panning and the sugar mill while others visit the heart of palm plantation, the chocolate farm or simple explore some trails at Danta Lodge.

Any of the outing offer and opportunity to meet the loco and share with them. At mid-day, all came back for lunch and some children from the near area offered a beautiful dance presentation with costumes. At the end of our stay in Playa Blanca a local NGO offered a demonstration of their research with sea turtles.
