With around 29% of its territory protected in 15 nature reserves, Panama is fast becoming a must-see destination for birdwatchers and nature lovers from all over the world. A transition zone between Central and South America, Panama is Central America’s most “tropical” destination. This green paradise is home to a rich, colorful, varied and photogenic bird life. Some 930 species of birds have been recorded here, more than in North America and Europe combined. The local flora is simply breathtaking, with over 10,000 species already identified in the country! The fauna is not to be outdone, with opportunities to observe Tamarin monkeys, sloths and other rare mammals such as the Ocelot and Tapir. With its short distances, excellent infrastructure and exceptional wildlife, this Central American destination has quickly established itself as a leading naturalist and birding destination. The country’s small size and easy accessibility to sites of interest make it a popular destination, particularly for short-haul tours.
