Tour Description

The province of Chiriquí is an area of Panama well known for its beautiful rainforest, amazing highland landscapes and great coffee, but it is especially famous because of the impressive diversity of birds that inhabit its forest. From the great number of hummingbirds to the exuberant resplendent quetzal, Chiriquí will make a lasting impression on bird enthusiasts and professional birders alike.

Both sides of the Barú Volcano, Boquete in the east and Volcán and Cerro Punta on the west, offer excellent birding opportunities, and we will customize the tour based on the birds that you are looking for.
