Known for its huge variety of birds (the Audubon Society's annual bird count once spotted over 500 species in 24 hours!), Soberania National Park is full of wildlife and is a wonderful place to watch for monkeys, sloths, eagles, and plenty more. Theres no denying that this spot in the Panama jungle really is the jackpot for animal lovers. Youll also catch a boat out to Monkey Island doesnt take a genius to guess what youll find here! Keep your eyes peeled to spot a number of different species of monkey.
Next, you will continue your tour up the Chagres River to an authentic Indian village. This will be an opportunity for you to get in touch with the local community, and learn all about their culture, customs, history, and more. As part of the visit, youll take a short hike along the trails through the rainforest to learn about how the local plants are used for medicinal purposes. With your local guide by your side through this adventure, youll learn plenty about the culture around you.
After your Panama jungle experience of a life time, youll head back into the city (perhaps a little begrudgingly) where your local guide will drop you back off at the American Trade Hotel.
