C: Panama Exploration and Panama Canal Cruise

Date: Friday, July 31, 2015 to Tuesday, August 11, 2015
Presented by: Angeles Chapter, Crescenta Valley Group
Level: Easy
Location: Panama

Join us on land and cruise tour of Panama. This is small ship/small group tour.

You will spend a few days on a 24 passenger catamaran cruising through the Panama Canal and stopping at various ports in and around the canal area.

From the ship, you will visit Taboga Island, known as the “Island of Flowers,” a title it lives up to with birds of paradise, orchids, and other tropical species. You'll pass through the Miraflores Locks and the Pedro Miguel Locks, experiencing for yourself the thrill of these engineering marvels, then through the Gaillard Cut and later staying in Gatun Lake.

We will leave the ship to enjoy a nature walk at San Lorenzo National Park to view its diverse flora and fauna, some of its twelve miles of picturesque coastline, and have opportunities to spot some of the park's several hundred bird species.

The Land tour will include a city tour of old Panama City and other sites.

We will also explore the Anton Valley, where we will visit a conservation center, hot springs, and other attractions.

We will go to the Gamboa area where you will visit Soberania National Park known for its variety of bird life and you will learn about the indigenous culture and meet some of members in a small village.
