Jungle and Bat Cave Adventure
We start our tour with a visit to to Punta Hospital, where you can go on a refreshing morning snorkel, surrounded by a multitude of reef fish.
We continue our excursion to Bastimentos Island where guests are likely to encounter dolphins in Bahia Honda before plunging into the mysterious mangrove forest. If Venice was situated in Panama, this would be the location. Enjoy the eerie sensation of gliding through the many channels, dissecting the jungle wilderness. Look out for wildlife, which has made this rich ecosystem their home. Amongst the many animals you will encounter, you will very likely meet monkeys, sloths, caimans and red frogs.
As we reach the entrance of the Ngöbé-Buglé Commune, a local guide will receive you. He will lead us on a short hike though the forest, pointing out the various medicinal plants and endemic wildlife. When we arrive at the famous bat cave, we will enter the famous bat cave. Your guide will provide you with helmets and headlamps, which will light up the fascinating spectacle surrounding you. Look out for bats, hanging lazily off the rock ledges and listen to the high-pitched, ultra-sound shrieks of the little "vampires".
As we finish our adventure, our adventurous guests are invited to jump from a rock to a natural swimming pool located inside of the dark cave.
