  • Visitar Parque Nacional de Soberanía es una belleza, sugiero ir acompañado de un guía autorizado para su ilustración y detalles.

  • Excellent accesible Rainforest with plenty of wildlife
  • One of Latin America's greatest national parks and places for wildlife and bird watching. On one morning (Tuesday, March 16) we saw 78 species of birds and two large groups of monkeys (Capuchin and howlers), and were able to observe their behavior up close. We saw broad-brilled Motmots, crimson-crested Manakins, a rare (for Panama) Tiny Hawk, and many other unusual, beautiful neo-trooical species. Book with a guide, and you will have a revelatory experience. Spectacular.
  • Hermosa la fauna increible unas vistas espectaculares. Enamoda al 100% De Panama; )
  • it was really fun because i got to see people that where lighter color than me but still looked similar 10/10 IGN
  • Great rain forest, we got the opportunity to see monkeys, sloths, different kinds of birds, and some other animals we don't know the names of. Definitely find pipeline road and hike as much as possible
