The island's midsection and surrounding waters are protected in the Isla Bastimentos National Marine Park, and the entire island offers nature lovers an array of wildlife, both terrestrial and marine. The waters here are filled with brilliant parrot fish, angel fish, red snapper, slender needle fish, and many others. Four species of sea turtles come ashore to nest on the beaches and the forests are home to many endemic and endangered species such as neon-colored frogs, the red-billed tropic bird and two- and three-toed sloths.
This morning return to Bocas del Toro to catch your short flight over the vast jungles and into the center of Panama's vibrant capital city. You are met at the airport for a tour of the Miraflores locks of the Panama Canal to observe the "eighth wonder of the world." Locomotives tie onto the mammoth ships and pull them through the locks to lessen the chance of mishap. You are transferred back to your hotel to enjoy your last afternoon in Panama City.
