Directions to Island of Barro Colorado
At an hour's drive from Panama City, you will arrive at Gatun Lake, part of the Panama Canal system, which houses the island of Barro Colorado, created by man. If you are looking for an educational and fascinating destination (ideal for a family day trip), this is the best you can find.
Thanks to the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, visitors to Barro Colorado can spend a day hiking, discovering monkeys, toucans, sloths, bats, crocodiles and much, much more. Just remember to make the reservation in advance, since the number of visitors is strictly limited to protect this valuable ecosystem. A full visit runs from morning to late afternoon and includes transportation time from Panama City, lunch and a two to three-hour excursion with a tour guide.
You will learn about amazing trees, birds, animals, fungi and everything imaginable, in addition to knowing the studies carried out on these species. A warning for the prudent: wear long pants and spray with repellent before starting.
The tropics are naturally full of bugs and you will probably get some bites when you walk through jungle areas. Clarified this, visitors agree that it is a site worth knowing as biodiversity habitat.
