Rainforests are some of the world’s most biologically diverse hábitats. In Panama, they are home to animals like monkeys, eagles, anteaters, jaguars and sloths. Panama’s rainforest destinations are often in rural areas and have quick access to nature. Hiking trails extend into the hillsides and forests that surround these towns — for this reason these destinations are popular with outdoor enthusiasts. Naturalist guides are available to help travelers understand the underlying composition of Panama’s rainforests.
