Panama (Achiote) 2014

We were very fortunate and blessed to have been able to secure four (4) excellent birding guides for various ports of call on our Panama Canal Cruise (Celebrity Century).  Some ports of call were half-days (Mexico) and others were full days of birding (Costa Rica and Panama).   The birding adventures made this Cruise very memorable and the birding were the highlights of our trip.  Not only we were able to get off the beaten path and see the Natural Beauty of our ports of call, but we learned more about the areas we visited and gained a greater appreciation for the diversity of this wonderful world, known as Gaia.

From the BirdingPal web site, I found Gonzalo Horna’s contact information as a Professional Guide in the Colon area.  As it was New Year’s Day (Holiday), I wasn’t sure if he would be available, or not – but he was!  and more than willing to take us to Achiote Road for some Birding.   Along the way, we stopped at the Gatun Locks, Dam, and Spillway for fabulous birds – before we reached Achiote Road which is a small piece of Paradise within Panama.

The entire trek with Gonzalo was very productive and we saw 97 species in total.
