An incredible sunrise was our welcome gift, when we were arriving to the Coiba National Park. A protected area that is consider part of an important marine corridor that connects Panama, Costa Rica and Ecuador. Crystal-clear waters, volcanic rocks and a green vegetation containing one of the planet’s richest ecosystems were all part of today’s itinerary. The morning began with birdwatching, while others went off to explore the area by kayak. Later, snorkeling among the area’s coral reefs and walking the white sandy coastline. Birds, lizards, and monkeys were among the species we saw today. We later visited a small islet known as Granito de Oro, where the turquoise waters and the variety and vibrance of marine life blow the collective mind. It was another remarkable day at paradise – now our voyage sails on toward Costa Rica.
