Day 5: Darien National Park, Colombia
World Heritage-listed Darién National Park 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 and mangroves, and is one of the few remaining examples in the world of a protected area inhabited by humans.

On your Scenic Discovery excursion 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, the Capybara and American Crocodile.

The deep blue waters and coral reefs around the island host an abundance of marine life, from inquisitive dolphins and porpoises to a possible glimpse of the majestic sperm whales.

Take a walk across the island with your local guide discovering the fauna and flora of the rainforest or walk to Yundigua beach and snorkel the pristine reefs and waters with your guide in search of marine life.
