Audubon members traveling to Costa Rica and Panama depart this Saturday. Among their stops is Isla Coiba, one of Panama’s most important national parks and one of five UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country. With superb examples of coral reefs and extensive tropical forest, it’s a gem for nature lovers.
What’s behind the name? Dry because none of the islands have fresh water. Tortugas because the explorer Ponce de Leon saw an abundance of sea turtles on the islands. Visit the National Park Service website to learn more.
