Nature-lovers should not miss Panama Rainforest Discovery Center, a park displaying the most exotic of Panama's avian species and plant life. Set in lush rainforest, the center boasts a 32 m (104 ft) observation deck from which you can see a number of tropical birds--especially toucans and blue cotinga. Don't miss the hummingbird feeding area near the information center. Monkeys, crocodiles, coatis, and butterflies also roam here. Organized tours or taxis are the best ways of getting to the center, as no buses serve the area.

  • We observed each layer of the rain forest from the 32 meter high view tower. We were stunned by the abundance of hummingbirds on the center's terrace. We went for a hike to the lake shore and saw amazing insects, birds. Take your kids here if you are in the area and have an hour or two.
  • 这里有很多蜂鸟,有人工用白糖水喂养,所以会聚集很多。中间有个高塔,上到顶可以看到周围的全景,满眼都是绿色。有巴拿马ID需要10刀,没有需要20刀,小孩1刀。但如果不来看这个地方,直接从右侧去顺着美军原来开辟的道路Hiking的话,可以走完整1天(来回可能有50KM)。
  • Maravilloso!
