A simply fantastico 5 days full of the Caribbean Ocean, espectacular beaches, tropical jungles, leatherback turtles, and an immersion into the Afro-Colombian Community, or travel to a Kuna Indigenous Village in Panama!

Spend a night watching giant leatherback turtles climbing awkwardly up the beach to lay their eggs under the protection of the moonlight sky.

Enjoy the Tropical Caribbean lifestyle visiting amazing beaches during the day and falling asleep at night to the sounds of the waves splashing against the beach, a stone’s throw from your bedroom window.
