What You Can Expect

Soberania National Park Day Trip from Panama City

Soberania National Park Day Trip from Panama City

Calling all nature lovers! This day trip to Soberanía National Park takes you on a guided walk through lush vegetation along Pipeline Road in search of abundant birds and other wildlife. With 385 bird species officially counted in just one day, the 10-mile (17-km) road features some of the best birdwatching opportunities in Panama.

After morning pickup from your downtown Panama City hotel, an approximate 20-minute drive takes you to the entrance of Soberanía National Park, located near the banks of the Panama Canal. Set out on foot with your naturalist guide, whose knowledge of the biodiverse flora and fauna helps you identify native birds, butterflies and primates that inhabit the tropical forest. 

As you make your way along the scenic hiking trail, stop for breaks and learn more about the region’s typical plant and animal life. Keep an eye out for toucans, three-toed sloths and howler monkeys as you walk to a waterfall for a refreshing dip.

Afterward, return on foot to your vehicle for the return drive to Panama City, where your 6-hour tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2015

While we had a fantastic guide, and ultimately had a nice day in the jungle, our experience with Viator left a lot to be desired. We booked the Best Sobarania National Park Day Trip for 180 per person. The website description is very vague and in hindsight, we should have gotten more information prior to booking. I'm honestly not sure why this tour costs 180 when their Soberania, Monkey Island and Indian Village is only 135. Except perhaps that this was a private hiking tour? We were not really prepared for 4 hours of jungle hiking, as the description doesn't mention this, nor did the confirmation suggest we dress for it. The website says the tour starts at 8am, and again, the confirmation mentioned nothing to the contrary, so we were very confused when the guide called us from our hotel lobby at 6:30. Sleepily, we asked him to come back at 8:00 which is when we thought the tour started. Little did we know, this meant we would arrive in the jungle as the heat was building and the animals were heading to siesta. So, the expectations and communication from Viator were extremely disappointing in this respect.

That said, our guide, Jorge was fantastic, as was the driver Vladimir. Both spoke excellent English and had great knowledge of the area as we drove out to the park. After a quick stop for a gas station sandwich included in our 180 tour price! we set off on our hike along the pipeline road. This is a car road, but we walked along, and the hike was out and back meaning whenever we reached our halfway point in time, we would just turn around and head back to our waiting car and driver. Jorge had great knowledge of the flowers, trees, bugs and birds that we saw along the way. He came armed with several wildlife identification guides as well. We did see lots of birds, butterflies, sloths and capuchin monkeys!

So, the tour was good, but they could do a better job in the description as well as the booking confirmation.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2015

The tour guide is fine, but the tour is just totally underwhelming. Not at all worth the money. Do not recommend to anyone.
