Rainforests are some of the world’s most biologically diverse habitats, so a visit to Panama's rainforests offers you the opportunity to see unique plants and animals you won't find outside of Central America. "Sounds neat, but what specifically can I expect to see?" you wonder. Panama's rainforest animals include monkeys, toucans, anteaters, jaguars, and sloths — all roaming free in their natural habitat.

Although best known for its beaches and surrounding islands, Isla Bastimentos has a dense rainforest that covers its untamed inland. On adventures on the island, you’ll see parts of the landscape like the pretty Laguna that provides a home to a sizable population of crocodiles.
Near the jungle, you can visit communities like the one near Quebrada de Sal, which is home to the indigenous Ngöbe-Buglé people. After meeting with the villagers, take a hike through the very rainforest that provides them with hunting grounds and medicinal plants.
