(PD01) Harpy Eagle (3 days/2 nights)

For those who want to explore Darien and wish to see a Harpy Eagle in the wild, this is an ideal package.

You will enjoy the unique road-trip starting from Panama city, a boat ride between Puerto Quimba and La Palma and then a scenic boat trip from La Palma to Mogue which is the closest point to the Harpy Eagle trail. With luck, we will see Harpy Eagles as well as many other species and varieties of flora and fauna.

The accommodation is in one of the Embera Villages and is in a traditional thatched “rancho” sleeping on camping mattresses: it’s basic but clean and gives you the opportunity to have a closer look at the local life-style.

On the last day, we will go to San Miguel Gulf looking for dolphins and visit the fort-ruins of the Spanish conquistadors before we head back to the City.

The package includes 3 meals, all transportation, lodging, contributions to the Indian Village and water. Please bring your Personal ID, wear light clothing, hat, walking shoes and carry sun block, insect repellent and plastic bags to protect your belongings.
