Barro Colorado Natural Monument
Our adventure begins at 6.30a.m. with a car trip through tropical rainforest to the small town of Gamboa, where a boat trip awaits us. We will cruise along Gatun Lake and the Panama Canal to the Gigante Peninsula and to the Barro Colorado Natural Monument (BCNM), which has been administered by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute since 1946, and is considered the best protected and studied tropical rainforest in the world. Here, we will hike along an interpretative trail through one of the most complex and diverse ecosystems, to observe a large amount of animal and plant species. Finally we will begin our return journey, cruising bays and channels covered by the forest. We will see birds and other animals without having to leave the boat. Arrival in Panama City is estimated at 3.00p.m.
