“Have you always wanted to bird Pipeline Road, experience a tropical sunrise from the top of the canopy, chase an ant swarm, walk in a cloud forest, and see the wintering home of our songbirds? Our journey offers a vast diversity of habitats while being comfortably based at two amazing lodges. We will explore the bird-rich lowland rainforest of the Canal Zone, and then from a mountain valley lodge enjoy more wonderful birding locations in the cloud forest, Caribbean slope, Pacific foothills, dry forest, and coastal beaches.

…Panama boasts 972 species of birds (16 globally threatened birds and 8 country endemics), 218 species of mammals, 242 known reptiles, 182 species of amphibians, and around 9,915 species of higher plants.”
