Coiba National Park

We had paid a local fisherman to take us on a 20 minute boat ride across the Gulfo Dulce to Matapalo Point on his Ponga with shade improvised from a plastic sheet. It ranges from $15.00 - $25.00 per person round trip from Pavones to Punta Matapalo. Fisherman know the Gulf well for its abundance of fish. Unsure of our destination, as we approached the coastline, local surfers paddling in the water directed us to an opening in the lush rain forest along the coast.
