Islas Secas offers unmatched Panama birding, with over 50 species of resident and migratory birds. A brief boat ride to Islas Coco, one of the Secas islands, will reveal the second-largest colony of soaring Frigates (Fregata magnificens) in Panama. It’s a thrill to watch these spectacular birds dive and dance, and if you’re lucky, you’ll catch them snatching prey in mid-flight. The rare Brown-footed Boobies also make their home on Isla Coco.
Back on Islas Cavada, over two miles of groomed trails await those seeking to explore the jungle-clad forests in search of the sights and sounds of the dozens of other species of bird that live or visit the archipelago. It’s Panama birding at its best.
