You could go bird watching in the Pedasi area. The best place to do that, in my opinion, is Cañas, which is about 40 to 45 minutes from Pedasi. Cañas (pictured) has forests, canopy tours and ziplines. There are tracks, lots of nature, waterfalls, birds, monkeys of all types (including howler and spider monkeys), and different kinds of butterflies.
If you’re lucky, you can see woodpeckers, toucans, and parrots. Our area here is not the most famous for bird watching because it’s the driest part of Panama, but there are still lots of birds here.
Also around the Cañas area, you can kayak to the island of Cañas and around the mangroves, which is a good place to go bird watching from the water.
One of the advantages of living in Panama is it is such a small country. If you wanted to go to the other tropical rainforest to see even more exotic birds, you can go to the rainforest in the colder areas or Panama or the more mountainous region of El Valle de Anton, which is about three and a half hours away. Then there’s Boquete, which is between five and six hours away. Near Panama City, there is the Gaton Gamboa rainforest along the canal, which has an abundance of nature and wildlife. In all of Panama, that would be the best place to go bird watching.
Panama City is a four-hour drive away. It’s 45 minutes by plane from Albrook Airport in Panama City, straight to Pedasi.
