Today we visited the world famous Barro Colorado Island, located in the manmade lake of Gatun, Panama. This truly is considered a living laboratory for tropical rainforest research, and a lot of our knowledge about neotropical forest dynamics stems from this site. Our guest had the choice between two vantages of jungle, being either the coast-side cruise by Zodiac or by walking the trails along the forest grounds.
Later finding ourselves outside the Gatun Locks, we completed our transit through the Panama Canal, putting us right back at sea level and facing an open Caribbean.
