PRE-Extension for the January 18 – 25, 2013 Panama Tour
One of the rarest and most majestic birds on the planet, the Harpy Eagle is the most powerful bird of prey in the world! Only about 100 nests are known throughout Central and South America, and Panama has one of the “easier” opportunities to see this grand creature. However, it is not an ‘easy’ trip!
Our 5-day/4-night extension will take us into the coastal Darien region which will be very hot and humid, the accommodations are very basic (see descriptions under “Accommodations” tab) and the hike to the nest is about 3.5 miles (one-way) of mostly flat, but often muddy terrain. However, seeing the Harpy Eagle makes the lack of some amenities and the arduous hike well worth all the effort!
