Barro Colorado is an island located in the Gatun lake in the heart of the primary tropical forest. The Gatun lake was created for the boat to transit most of the ithsmus sailing.

This island is exclusively dedicated to scientist studies under the authority  of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute . Unique insects, birds and other animals can thus be preserved: most are endangered species.

Few visitors can get there as one must book ahead: we at Nativa Tourts will take of that. As well, only one single boat can access the island. The 45 mn sail starts from Gamboa along the canal and the boat crosses the Panama canal channel: this is a real unique opportunity to get very close to these giants  in the canal.

Your private driver will pick you up at your hotel.  Once you arrive at Barro Colorado, you will have time to prepare for a walk along one of our interpretative nature trails.

An English/Spanish guide will explain you why Barro Colorado is such an amazing island and what kind of animals you will see (French, Italian, German & other languages guide on previous request and optional).The trails are about 2Kms long and may be quite steep, but you will stop frequently, having time to rest and enjoy the sights, and to learn more about the natural history of the place. The tour includes a visit of the Visitor’s Center, where you will find an exhibition summarizing the most important points discussed along the trail.

                          

The Visitor’s Center is located in the Field Research Station, a historic building dating from 1924: it was the first laboratory on Barro Colorado and also serves as a dormitory and dining hall. Today, it houses a small display about research projects underway on the island.

Barro Colorado Island is home to 115 mammal species, including 72 species of bats, 5 species of monkeys, agoutis, tapirs, coatis, sloths and peccaries. Its botanical wealth is similarly impressive: more than 1,200 plant species can be found on the Island.
