Wildlife & Birding Tours in Panama
Panama wildlife tours is offered by Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge is located on 200 pristine acres, adjacent to Bastimentos National Marine Park, in Bocas del Toro, Panama. It sits amongst the convergence of 3 distinct ecosystems.
This creates an extremely diverse and unique wildlife observation site where flora and fauna overlap from separate worlds increasing diversity. In a week it is possible to identify over 100 species of birds without leaving the property.
There are several elevated porches throughout the facility, creating an incredible eye-level view. While doing birding tours in Panama onsite you might also encounter white-faced capuchin monkeys, night monkeys, two and three toed sloths, iguanas, caiman, butterflies, a variety of frogs and lizards, and within the canopy a collage of rain forest hardwood and fruit trees, lianas, mangroves, ferns, orchids and cycads.
Our central location in the archipelago of Bocas del Toro, Panama allows us to explore freely, traveling by boat directly from the facility for all of our excursions. Due to dramatic geographic formations and Bocas del Toro’s dynamic environment the range of different bird habitats seem endless.
In western Panama wildlife tours, the Caribbean Slope of the Talamanca mountain range, Tranquilo Bay’s back yard, plunges some 11,000 feet from the high alpine forest of La Amistad National Park into the lowland rainforests bordering the Caribbean Sea, in a span of less than 40 miles.
Within the areas we explore from our comfortable facility the altitude ranges from 7,000 feet to sea level in a zone where over 580 species of birds can be found. This extreme biodiversity and high level of endemic species is due to abrupt changes in altitudinal zones and extreme geographic features creating many distinct ecosystems, as well as, migratory corridors.
The lodge has the best naturalist guides in Western Panama wildlife tours. Guides each have over ten years’ experience and a well-rounded knowledge of all neo-tropical flora and fauna. Depending upon the number of people within a group, it may be accompanied by one or several guides for each day’s session. The guides may also divide up activities for groups with various interests.

At Tranquilo Bay, we believe that people who experience an authentic, regenerative vacation create treasured memories, but we know treasured memories do not come easy.
How do you make sure you pick the right vacation? Are the places you are considering transparent about their sustainability and regenerative practices?
We hope so. That is why we have created an IMPACT page (https://www.tranquilobay.com/impact/) so that we may tell you about the metrics we use to measure and course correct for our sustainability practices as we work our way
toward true regenerative practices. These measurements are detailed in the IMPACT Report that is available for download at the end of the page.
We know that the best measurement we can monitor is how we improve against ourselves not against a third party. Thus, we are monitoring specific metrics to determine how we are doing today and how things change over time.
