  • Cerro Dragon and Daphne Islet

    by Lourdes Pesantes , Naturalist

    Today we visited Santa Cruz Island for a second time, and spent the morning in the northern region of the Island. The visitor site is known as Cerro Dragon, or Dragon Hill. During the hike, we got to see Galapagos marine iguanas, and we even observed Galapagos land iguanas fighting. After this, we prepared for snorkeling at the bigger Islet of Guy Fawkes, where we saw big schools of colorful fish, sharks and some sea lions that were playing with the guests: an amazing experience! During the afternoon, we enjoyed a boat ride around Daphne Mayor Islet and celebrated the sunset with a wine tasting, .

  • Golfito & Casa Orquideas

    by José Calvo , Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

    On our first day in Costa Rica, we visited during the morning the mangrove forest along the edges of the well protected waters of the little gulf of Golfito, inside the larger gulf of Golfo Dulce. Some of us explored the bay by kayak and other by expedition landing craft. The morning air was cooler and we got to understand better the importance of the mangrove forest while seeing monkeys and many birds.During the afternoon we visited Casa Orquideas.
