Just a 30-minute drive from Panama City lies the green tropical world of Soberania National Park. This rainforest is the habitat of hundreds of species of fauna and flora and is especially known for its 525 different species of birds. There are numerous daytrips from Panama City, but to get a real taste of the rainforest, it is worth spending several days in the park and overnighting in the jungle.
It is worth spending a night in the jungle as the rainforest really comes alive after sunset. The silence is pierced by mysterious sounds, screaming monkeys and chirping crickets. Visitors have a choice of 2 rainforest accommodations: the luxurious Gamboa Rainforest Resort and the smaller Canopy Tower. The latter hotel is housed in a former American radar tower. The rooms are located high above the jungle and offer a great view of the rainforest.
