Parque Nacional de Soberania
#16 of 125 things to do in Panama City
Guided birding tours by Canopy Family took us to several world-class birding and nature observation venues, including Pipeline Road and Chagres River.
The Pipeline Road itself has more dense vegetation each side so we saw fewer birds - apart from some beautiful trogon - as we walked along it but several families of agouti and capybara crossed in front or behind us.
