Jan 13, 2020 - National Geographic Quest
In our first full day of expeditions, we have the unique opportunity to visit Barro Colorado Island and the Panama Canal. This island is under the administration of the Smithsonian Research Institute and probably is one the most researched pieces of tropical rainforest in the world. We started our day with several choices of walks on this island, that gave us the best chances to see wildlife. We saw several monkeys such as white face capuchin monkeys, mantled howler monkeys and geoffroys tamarins. We also enjoyed the beautiful hummingbirds such as white necked jacobins.
Later in the afternoon, we enjoy the breathtaking sunset while cruising through the Gatun Lake on our way to the southern section of the Panama Canal, in where we saw Culebra Cut and finally arrive to our last segment of our transit doing the lockage of Pedro Miguel and Miraflores locks.
