CHECK RATES

WEATHER
 Expect foggy mornings and some windy moments with scatter showers along the day.
The climate in Central Panama /Canal Zone is usually warm, with mornings in the 70s and afternoons in the 80s. Conditions at midday can be humid and very warm, with temperatures reaching into the lower 90s. Rainstorms may occur at any time of year, but are more likely during the rainy season, which runs from the summer months into early December. Generally, the weather in Central Panama is mild and pleasant, with our activities corresponding to the cooler parts of the day and heightened bird activity.

ACCOMODATIONS
                                                                                                  Cerro Campana is easily done as a complete day trip, or as a complement going to Panama City from El Valle or from other Panama interior places.  Lodging in the area is available.

EATING FACILITIES
     No place near the park it self.  Lunch will be pack or we may drive 15 minutes to the nearest eating facility in Capira.

GUIDE BOOK RECOMMENDED
                                                                                 Go Back
      These two books are an example of hard work put into, and for the benefit, of conserving Panama’s birds: 
     “The Birds of Panama, a field guide by George R Angehr and Robert Dean Can be described as the “bible” for Panama and some Costa Rica birds. The latest edition (1989).This excellent field guide is highly recommended as your primary reference book on the birds. 
     “An Illustrated Field Guide to the Birds of Panama” by Ernesto Ponce and Giselle Muschett, 2006, 1st Edition. It can be described as “a descriptive fieldwork tool” for fast information .

BIRDS TO LOOK FOR
     This is a list of birds - by memory - seen at Campana National Park and environs during different tours, and some additions from friends, guess and people who have collaborated sharing with us their sightings. The list is continuously on the move. Feel free to send your findings and comments to
