How it should and shouldn’t be done.
It really saddens me to see the amount of trash in our rivers. We no longer use any single use plastic water bottles or soda cans on our tours.
This little capuchin was trying to open a snail to eat. Unfortunately he dropped it back into the water. He is the only capuchin on the little island he shares with a group of tamarin monkeys. Our guests had a wonderful time photographing him.
Whoa...flaps down..check..undercarriage down..check...
Kayaking Gatun Lake in Panama 😍💛
Amazing day 2 in Panama! Our last day in the rainforest started off with an expedition across the lake Gatun. As we sped through the water, we made pit stops at the islands and attempted to meet the wildlife. We managed to be greeted by Capuchin monkeys, and some tiny Tamarin monkeys came onto our boat and enjoyed a little snack! 🍌 Once we returned to shore, we headed to the Panama canal and embarked on a 4 hour cruise through the 3 original locks, eventually ending up in the Pacific Ocean. After our cruise we were able to see the canal from a new angle at the Miraflores Visitor Center, where we learned more about the history of the canal and were able to see a ship pass through the Miraflores locks. The locks connect the freshwater lake with the Pacific Ocean, and once a ship passes through the first part of the lock, water is drained so that the water level matches the other side. Electric “mules” pull the boats safely through the narrow canal. Day 2 down - tomorrow off to El Valle de Anton! #gocollette #guidedbycollette #discoverpanama #panamacanal #miraflores #gatunlake #travel
