Panama is a Central America country small in size but big in offerings and heart, including history, culture, food, beaches, and ecotourism. This time I'm highlighting one singular spot rich in the last category. Welcome to Soberanía National Park!
Straddling two of the ten provinces that make up the country, and super convenient to reach as it's just outside capital Panama City, this jungly, 220-square-kilometre (55,000-acre) spread is home to many species of tropical flora and fauna, and above all a rich variety of birds, some 525 species of them. It’s a great opportunity to spot numerous species while enjoying tropical nature in its purest state; not surprisingly, it's a huge draw for many nature-minded visitors to this country.
