Our birding tour to central Panama offers a unique mix of Central and South American bird species commingling in the area surrounding the Panama Canal. The tour begins with a full day of birding the dry deciduous forest of Metropolitan Park overlooking the Panama Canal. Next day is a visit to the Bayano lowland forest of eastern Panama where many Darien endemics not present elsewhere in Panama can be found. Then the tour covers Old Gamboa Road, a vehicle-free roadway through lowland tropical forest, followed by a transfer to the Caribbean side of the Canal Zone. There a full day will be spent birding famed Achiote Road focusing on specialties of the eastern slope before returning to the Pacific slope. Next up is a morning birding famed Pipeline Road following by two full days birding the higher elevation area around El Valle de Anton. The tour ends with a final night back in the lowlands before international flights depart next morning. Accommodations are generally good throughout the tour.
