Costa Rica & Panama Photos

Costa Rica and Panama bridge the Continents of North and South America while dividing two oceans, the Pacific and Atlantic and creating unique ecosystems with an incredible diversity of flora and fauna. Our visit to Costa Rica took us by land from the northern regions around Arenal Volcano (the 2nd most active volcano on the planet) to the popular coastal natural gem of Manuel Antonio National Park. We then embarked on a photo expedition aboard the 152 foot expedition vessel National Geographic Sea Lion. Our journey took us south along the Costa Rican and Panamanian coastline where we explored the mainland rainforests and remote off shore islands rich in wildlife with their diverse ecosystems. We spent time kayaking through ancient mangrove forests, exploring remote islands, lying on the ground watching armies of leaf cutter ants, hiking thru the forests seeking monkeys, sloths, coatis, toucans, hummingbirds and scarlet macaws among the many species we found. We explored the Osa Peninsular,
And Corcovado National Park, Golfo Dulce, Isla Coiba National Park, remote Panama Bay Islands with a special visit to Gatun Lake and Barro Colorado Island an isolated natural laboratory run by the world-renowned Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.
Our journey to the remote tropical rainforests ended as it often does, back in civilization, but this time we reentered the modern world via one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the Panama Canal. Enjoy some of the wonders of Costa Rica and Panama.
