I’m not an expert bird watcher; will I enjoy Panama?
Birds are the main focus, so it is geared toward bird watchers. That being said, you only need to enjoy bird watching to fully appreciate this trip. Our leader, Paco Madrigal, is really great with both beginner and advanced birders. You will also see mammals, reptiles, and beautiful plants and insects on this trip.
You’ll travel in spacious air-conditioned vehicles.
