DAY TOUR AT TRANQUILO BAY

HIKE. CLIMB. EAT. KAYAK. SNORKEL.

A 3-toed sloth baby clinging to its mother, a troop of capuchin monkeys, a hummingbird in its nest, green iquanas, brilliantly-colored ‘mini’ frogs, and even upside-down jellyfish — we saw it all at Tranquilo Bay! For a wildlife, rainforest and ocean experience all rolled into one, nothing can match Tranquilo Bay. The whole staff, including expert guides, will insure that you have the best time while enjoying a beautiful tropical environment and delicious food!

PANAMA RAINFOREST HIKING

 
Tranquilo Bay's grounds include over 200 acres with several kilometers of forested trails. Many of Isla Bastimentos favorite birds, monkeys, sloths, iguanas, lizards, insects and frogs live here.

Possible bird sightings may include: multiple raptors, Montezuma Oropendolas, Red-lored Parrots, hummingbirds, five species of kingfishers, Green Ibis, woodpeckers, honeycreepers, tanagers, pigeons, antbirds, manakins, seedeaters, herons, and in-season, Three-wattled Bellbirds.

Wildlife sightings may include: White-faced Capuchins, three and two-toed sloths, green iguanas, basilisk lizards, butterflies and poison dart frogs.

CLIMB UP. LOOK AROUND.

 

The wildlife and views from the tower are incredible, but the natural history lesson alone is worth the climb. All life zones known to the tropics, from the mountains to the coral reefs below the ocean's surface are visible from the Canopy Tower. This vantage point above the forest's canopy gives you a bird's-eye view of the entire archipelago.

HANDCRAFTED MEALS. LOCAL FLAVOR.

 

Lunch is a typical Panamanian dish, salad, and homemade cookies. For the tour group we have either a chicken or vegan option. Make sure you let us know when you make your reservation which option you prefer.


We include fresh-squeezed juices, refreshing rainwater, sodas, Panamanian coffee, and a selection of teas as part of the tour. We send rainwater in reusable water bottles to quench your thirst on the trail and in the ocean.

KAYAKING THE CARIBBEAN

 
The kayaking part of the tour departs from Tranquilo Bay's comfortable facility. Our our staff will handle the preparation, maintenance and portage of the equipment. We provide snorkel gear for the tour so you may explore the underwater garden that includes tropical fish and vibrant coral reefs. All you have to do is paddle and absorb the breath-taking scenery.

For those new to kayaking, we will give you a lesson to familiarize you with the equipment and techniques to prepare you for your adventure.

SNORKELING THE OCEAN BLUE

 

Your snorkeling adventure covers several ecosystems. Kayak snorkeling from Tranquilo Bay places you within the marine park. You explore different types of coral formations and marine habitat during your time underwater.
