Panama's Diverse Ecology

E-mail Print PDF

Panama is one of the richest sites of bio-diversity in the world. There are over 2,000 species

of plants on the north coast of the country alone, with more than 10,000 total plant species in the country, of which over 90% are flowering plants. These plants are part of the foundation of an incredibly diverse ecological chain.

That chain also includes thousands of species of insects and spiders, approx 975 bird species, approximately 230 mammal species including whales, manatees, primates, rabbits, wild pigs, deer, moles, tapirs, possums, big cats, rodents, bats, armadillos, anteaters, and of course sloths, and an undocumented number of amphibians (hundreds), and reptiles (at least 130 living along the canal alone), including Crocodiles, caymans, alligators, snakes, lizards, turtles, and tortoises.

Every time we go out to hike, bike, swim, fish or just go to the beach, we experience something we have never seen before. You will see a variety of them on our regular tours, but if you have a specific interest, let us know in advance and we will set up a tour with a highly trained guide who specializes in the subject of your choice.
