Panama together with Jim Danzenbaker's leadership equals a wonderful tropical experience. Jim is absolutely tops when it comes to uncovering Neotropical wildlife so he personally designed this two-week itinerary with plenty of time at three significant sites. Four days at Canopy Tower, four days at Canopy Lodge, and four days at Los Quetzales allows you in-depth field time and very little time traveling between the varied lowland and highland destinations. Jim will focus on many birds, amazing Neotropical mammals and beautiful, photogenic butterflies and amphibians. The food is delicious, the lodges extremely comfortable, and the people are as friendly as can be. Join Jim and our resident guides in this small gem of a country with incredible biodiversity, located beside Costa Rica. If you loved Costa Rica, you will love Panama.

Lush and verdant throughout the year, Costa Rica is a fantastic place to visit for the avid nature lover. This small Central American country holds some of the most productive ecosystems in the world. We will explore these ecosystems by visiting rainforests such as Carara Biological Reserve, Volcán Arenal, La Selva Biological Station, Braulio Carrillo National Park, and Tortuguero National Park; cloud forests such as Cerro de la Muerte and the Savergre River Valley; and dry forests such as Guanacaste. March is the best time for exceptional weather and to see active animals, including migrating hawks as they journey along the Continental Divide, the backbone of Costa Rica. We also seek Resplendent Quetzals, colorful trogons and tanagers, jeweled hummingbirds, charming manakins, boisterous macaws, giant crocodiles, sloths, monkeys, river otters, sea turtles, reptiles, bats, butterflies, and much more. Start early each morning to maximize wildlife sightings. The people of Costa Rica are friendly, the food is delicious, and the lodges are brilliantly situated and comfortable. Join us as we explore this Central American hotspot.
