Feb 08, 2019 - National Geographic Quest
National Geographic Quest repositioned very early in the morning in front of Barro Colorado Island. The call of howler monkeys were heard from our ship and a lush band of forest began to show more and more as the sun rose. In the dining room of the ship, a delicious breakfast awaited us.
It was our final day through the wonders of Costa Rica and Panama. Knowing our journey was nearing its end was not an easy reality to meet. Before our venture concluded, however, we got out to explore more of Gatun Lake and its surroundings. Some of our guest went to hike the trails of Barro Colorado Island and others took local speedboats to visit the Panama Rainforest Discovery Center.
This venture marks a rich seven-day survey of exploring Panamanian ecology—one that leaves many guests eager to learn more about this essential ecosystem and what can be done to conserve it.
