Although many people have been to central Panama, the western part for the country is much less visited. This tour will take you to the incredible Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge as well as the Chiriquí Highlands. This will allow us to bird from the islands of Bocas del Toro all the way to the high elevations in the Chiriquí region.

Tranquilo Bay Lodge is situated on a beautiful island in Bocas del Toro and is in the prefect location for exploring this incredible region. We’ll spend our days visiting various islands as well as some sites on the mainland. Some highlight species for this part of the tour may include Stub-tailed Spadebill, Golden-collared Manakin, many tanagers, Snowy Cotinga, and Red-billed Tropicbird.

The second part of this tour will take us to Mount Totumas in the highlands of western Panama. This will provide a very different birding experience and many new species for the list. Highlights could include Three-wattled Bellbird, Resplendent Quetzal, Flame-throated Warbler, Long-Tailed Silky Flycatcher, Turquoise Cotinga, Fiery-billed Aracari, and more!
