Please note that there is an additional fee for this experience.
From migratory whales that breed in the clear waters, to richly colorful reefs, Coiba National Park is teeming with sea life.
Coiba National Park, one of the largest marine protected areas in the world, plays host to an astonishing variety of marine life, from humpback whales, sharks and whale sharks, to a multitude of tropical reef fish. That means one thing: some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling on the planet.
Thrilling wildlife encounters are guaranteed with rare birds, mysterious insects and endemic monkeys.
Isla Coiba, the largest of the 38 islands that make up Coiba National Park, was for many years a remote penal colony. Over three quarters of the island remains covered in thick, ancient forest, offering thrilling hikes in search of rare subspecies that can only be seen here, including the Coiba howler monkey and Coiba spinetail bird.
