San San Pond Sak Wetlands Weekend Trip

The San San Pond Sak Wetlands Reserve are a complex of lakes, streams, swamps, rivers and beaches in the western part of the Bocas del Toro province, on the mainland district of Changuinola. The wetlands are the natural habitat for several endangered species such as the mysterious manatees. Several species of sea turtles lay their eggs in these shores and sloths, river otters, white-faced monkeys, caimans, iguanas, poison-dart frogs and more than 150 bird species also call these wetlands their home.

So if you're interested in getting up and close with wildlife in Panama, this trip is for you! Chances are very high that we could spot some manatees and watch some sea turtles lay their eggs and/or hatch (depending on our luck and when you join us).

By visiting the San San Pond Sak Wetlands Reserve you will be having a direct economic impact on its local community and thus it is more likely that its nature and wildlife will be valued and taken care of. You can learn more about AAMVECONA, the local organization through which we will be organizing this trip by clicking here.

It is believed that fewer than 100 Manatees still live in Bocas del Toro, Panama
