Transfer to Playa El Arenal in Pedasí, where your boat takes you to Iguana Island – a wildlife ref-uge 8 kilometers off the coast. The island is famous for its white sand beach, crystal waters, exten-sive mangrove forests and coral riffs including 12 different types of corals that shelter more than 300 species of fish. Dolphins are frequently seen, as well as (harmless) sharks, turtles and – be-tween June and October – humpback whales that migrate from cold waters to Panama’s Pacific coast with warmer water temperatures. Iguana Island is also home to a large breeding colony of frigate birds and – as the island’s name indicates – iguanas. On the island you will explore a hiking trail that crosses the island from West to East to observe the iguanas and marine birds with your guide. You will then settle at the beach and explore the different coral reefs and the colorful sub-marine world snorkeling. Enjoy some relaxing time at the beach while your guide prepares a snack with fresh fruits, sandwiches and cookies for you. A coastal lunch – fried fish and plantains – will be served once back on the mainland.
