#607 Gatun Expedition and Discovery Center

A Nativa Tours representative will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the Panama Rainforest Discovery Center, an environmental education center. It is a project of environmental education and ecotourism administered by the “Birdlife Eugene Eisenmann Foundation“, which aims to bird conservation through environmental sustainability projects. Enjoy nature, stroll the trails, discover the wide variety of birds from the observation tower of 32 meters high, and relax watching the hummingbirds at the Visitor Center.

Enjoy a box lunch before continuing to the Gamboa Rainforest Resort, where begins the boat tour “Gatun Expedition”. Navigate on the Chagres River passing the historic bridge of Gamboa and arriving at Gatun Lake, which is the world’s second largest artificial lake with 423 square kilometers. This lake was formed for the Panama Canal construction, over a hundred years ago. In our tour of the Gatun Lake, you will see the huge ships transiting the Canal and visit some small islands along our route in search of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, crocodiles, eagles, toucans and many other animals and tropical birds.
