Wild Panama Off The Beaten Track
An actively adventurous tour designed for intrepid travellers eager to experience the best wilderness Panama can offer, both below and above the sea’s surface. Starting with the wildlife of Gatun Lake in the Canal Zone, proceed to explore two extra-special remote wildlife regions: Punta Patino in the legendary Darien for primary dry forest, diverse fauna and great birding (including possibly the harpy eagle) and the extraordinary forests and Pacific marine environment of Coiba Island National Park.
The fact that the Darien is the only gap in the Pan American highway (spanning all of North and South America) speaks for its isolation and wildness. Coiba sits in a deep offshore trench and has been compared to Cocos Island for its marine diversity but is far closer to shore and much more accessible. If you are unworried about having high levels of comfort and seek the authentic wild parts of Panama, you will have a truly wonderful wildlife holiday.
