Colombia welcomed us with a wonderful day, opening the doors of Eden for National Geographic Quest and sharing this magical territory with us for the first time.

Full of excitement to start discovering the two beautiful bays of Capurgana and Sapzurro, we divided into several groups to enjoy different activities.

One of these activities was trekking along a 3.9 km path from Capurgana all the way to Sapzurro. This beautiful journey through the tropical rainforest delighted our senses. We listened to the howler monkeys and observed different types of reptiles and birds.

During the afternoon, the Capurgana community extended an invitation to tour around town and walk through its streets. The day ended with a magnificent artistic performance at the town’s public school. This was so enriching because we were able to experience the human quality, warmth, and joy of this incredible Colombian region.
