Merlin Tours is currently working with the Canopy Family to put together a 9-night, all-inclusive birding package to explore the Darién region of eastern Panama. The Darien, as this eastern-most region of Panama is called, is perhaps the most diverse and species-rich region of Central America. Long coveted by avid birders as an impenetrable haven for rare species, this region is now readily accessible by a highway extending through the spine of Panama into the heart of this bird-rich land.
(There are presently safety concerns throughout the region, hence we have suspended our plans to schedule a birding tour to the Darien until the situation becomes safe for our clients. Full details of this tour will be posted as soon as the situation is resolved.}
