Als wir das Kreuzfahrtterminal verließen, erwartete uns Steven, unser Guide, bereits mit einem Schild mit unseren Namen. Er lud uns fix in sein Auto ein und los ging die Fahrt in Richtung Veragua Regenwald. Unterwegs erklärte Steven uns viele Dinge über die Gegend und die Leute. Nachdem wir angekommen waren, organisierte er für uns den Eintritt und übergab uns einer Führerin durch den Regenwald, dir uns exklusiv führte. Unterwegs sahen wir bunte Frösche, diverse Vögel, Schöne Falter und Schmetterlinge und ein Fauktier. Danach erwartete uns Steven bereits in fuhr uns zu den Kanälen, wo er uns auch schnell ein Boot besorgte, dass uns mitnahm, sogar mit deutscher Reiseleitung. Wir sahen viele spannende Tiere und hatten eine tolle Zeit. Dann fuhr Steven uns noch zu schönen Spots und Aussichtspunkten. Wir sagen Danke Steven und geben eine klare Empfehlung für diese interessante und angenehme Tour.
