Panama Birdwatching Tour
Birdwatching Tour Description
This birdwatching tour takes place at Pipeline Road, which is located in the Soberania National Park, 40 minutes from Panama City, and where approximatelly 380 bird species have been counted here. On this day your specialist leader will guide you through this world famous trail for an unforgettable birdwatching experience.
