Darién National Park

Darién National Park is one of the most important World Heritage-listed Sites in Central America and is only accessible by water on a small ship. A natural bridge spanning the two Americas, it houses a myriad of habitats, ranging from rocky coastlines to sandy beaches to mangroves and is one of the few remaining examples in the world of a protected area inhabited by humans. Hop in a Zodiac and venture up the Mogue River to find the Embera Indians who will take you into the heart of the jungle on their traditional boats. Spot some of the rare, endangered species endemic to the park including the Black-headed Spider Monkey, Capybara and American Crocodile. Soar over the jungle on a helicopter excursion^ for spectacular views.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Utría National Park

A spectacular day of discovery awaits at this remote national park on the Pacific Coast of Colombia. This protected area forms a unique connection between the humid tropical rainforest and the ocean swarming with marine life including migrating humpback whales.

Choose to paddle in a kayak or jump in the Zodiacs to explore the coastal environs. Alternatively take a trek through the virgin rainforest or an easy walk along the raised wooden pathways through the mangrove swamps. You can choose to relax on the beach with a chef-prepared picnic and swim or snorkel in the calm waters of the bay.


Witness the proud Afro-Pacific musical and dance heritage of the local El Valle residents in a private concert on the beach.
