We spend several days at and around the famous Panama Canopy Tower, allowing us an unrivalled opportunity to explore the rainforest canopy of Soberanía National Park from a bird’s eye view. Colorful tanagers, toucans and honeycreepers can be observed even from our beds or dining room! Surrounding forest and wetland sites provide superb birding and the mammal watching opportunities are surprisingly good. Further to the south, our next attraction is the Canopy Lodge, in the delightful hill country of el Valle de Antón. Here we explore cloudforest and a whole range of new mouth-watering species! Moving further south, we enter the great rainforests of the little known Darien and its myriad of exciting birding opportunities. Key targets of this relaxed pace tour include Harpy Eagle, Sunbittern, Rufous-vented Ground Cuckoo, the endemic Veraguan Mango, stunning Blue Cotinga, Ocellated and Wing-banded Antbird, Rosy Thrush-Tanager and the bizarre Sapayoa.
