What You Can Expect
Then, you'll proceed to the exhibits area. The snake exhibit allows you to see live snakes up close but from behind the safety of the terrariums. The butterfly exhibit, also a nursery, is an educational area where an expert guide will explain to you the complete life cycle of these spectacular insects. In the aquarium, there are fresh-water fish from the tropical areas of America, Africa and Asia. This colorful exhibit also plays host to reptiles such as crocodiles, caimans and turtles.
Lastly, you'll visit a model Indian village with replica Embera houses. Your guide, a local Embera Indian, will explain all about this local Panamanian culture, including their rituals, traditional medicine, utensils of everyday use and their cultivated foods.
Interesting tour. Wish we could have seen more birds and others, but it is understandable not to see wild birds where there are a lot of people. It was still an interesting trip and I'm glad we went.
We booked in advance only to be notified on arrival that Tram dos not operate on a Monday! Very disappointing!
