Panama will surprise you at every turn with its narrowing of the continents which concentrates species, cultures, weather, and even transportation. The Panama Canal is a wonder, but a small one in comparison to the species diversity, rich environments, and the amazing people who will lead your trip. With seven Indian tribes, Spanish heritage, and international orientation, Panama offers a combination of worldy awareness and a world lost in time. Its 940 recorded bird species are just a hint of the great wildlife contained in its rainforests. On this tour, visit the Panama Canal, sanctuary islands, Smithsonian tropical studies areas, Kuna Indians, western highlands, cloud forests, and markets. This is a very complete taste of Panama with the full flavor of natural and cultural diversity.
