Panama, a biodiversity hotspot, is home to the largest number of birds of any country in Central America. Smaller than South Carolina, it has over a thousand recorded bird species. This astonishing diversity is easily accessible, making it possible to attain a very long bird list within a short period of time. What’s more, it is possible to see more than a hundred regional endemics. For these reasons, Panama is one of the top birding destinations in the world.

This 10-day Panama birding tour explores the Central and Western regions of the country, from the Panama Canal to the border of Costa Rica. Along the way, we will visit several life zones of the tropical forest. Dry forest, lowland rainforest, wet forest, and cloud forest, each offering unique landscapes and inhabitants.
