Wildlife & Birding Tours in Panama
Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge is located in 200 pristine acres of rainforest adjacent to Bastimentos National Marine Park in Bocas del Toro, Panama. It sits at the convergence of three distinct ecosystems, which makes it an extremely diverse and unique wildlife observation site where flora and fauna overlap from separate habitats. In a week it is possible to encounter more than 100 species of birds without leaving the property.
There are several elevated porches throughout the facility, giving an incredible eye-level view of the surrounding forest. While doing birding tours in Panama you might also encounter White-faced Capuchin Monkeys, Night Monkeys, Two- and Three-toed Sloths, Iguanas, Caiman, numerous butterflies and a variety of frogs and lizards within the canopy of hardwood and fruit trees, lianas, mangroves, ferns, orchids and cycads.
Our central location in the archipelago of Bocas del Toro allows us to explore the region freely, travelling by boat directly from the facility for all of our excursions. The Talamanca mountain range, Tranquilo Bay’s back yard, rises some 11,000 feet from the high alpine forest of La Amistad National Park into the lowland rainforests bordering the Caribbean in a span of less than 40 miles.
The dramatic landscape and dynamic environment offers a wide range of different bird habitats. Within the areas we explore from our comfortable facility the altitude ranges from 7,000 feet to sea level across an area where more than 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, which create a number of distinct ecosystems, as well as important migratory corridors.
Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge employs some of the leading naturalist guides in Western Panama. Each has more than ten years’ experience in tourism and a well-rounded knowledge of all neo-tropical flora and fauna. Depending upon the number of people within a group, you may be accompanied by one or more guides for each day’s session. The guides may also divide up activities for groups with specific 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.
