Tarzan, 21st century ! Who would have thought that a technology utilized hundreds of years ago by our indigenous people and later perfected by botanists and naturalists to observe and study the behaviors of wild creatures in their natural habitat, would be transformed into one of the most revered extreme sports.

A harness, an ultra-resistant steel cable and gravity are the only elements necessary to suspend and propel the "fearless rider" in this incredible "adrenaline rush".

Security Measures:
The equipment and the steel cables that you will use, have the capacity to resist many times the weight of a human, no matter what..

related barro colorado island

The Barro Colorado Island, BCI, it is located in Gatun Lake, by the Panama Canal main navigation channel is a biological reserch center  managed by The Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, STRI.

It was formed with the creation of Lake Gatun in 1913 during the construction of the Panama Canal. The 15-square-kilometer island is home to one of the oldest tropical research stations in the world, where studies have been carried out for more than a century.  Yearly, more than 400 scientists visit this rainforest-covered living laboratory to study biology, ecology, evolution and animal behavior.

BCI teems with biodiversity. It is home to almost 400 bird species, some 500 species of butterflies and 500 species of trees. Lucky visitors will see (and hear) troupes of howler monkeys, colorful toucans, mischievous agoutis and millions-strong ant colonies


Dozens of trails weave through the forests of Barro Colorado. The trails for visitors include dozens of stops where guides will tell visitors about the history and scientific discoveries of the islands. The trails have moderate inclines and descents that may not be suitable for all visitors.

With views of the lush forests along either bank of the canal and the chance that you’ll cross paths with an enormous cargo ship, the boat ride to and from the island can be an adventure in itself.

A mecca for tropical biologists, Barro Colorado Island and five surrounding peninsulas provide easy access for scientists to central Panama’s lowland tropical forest. Collaborations among the more than 400 students and experts who visit each year yield research projects that help us understand one of the world’s most complex terrestrial ecosystems.

STRI was founded with the purpose of increasing and sharing knowledge about the past, present and future of tropical ecosystems and their relevance to human welfare. This work began in Panama in 1910, when the Smithsonian led one of the world’s first major environmental impact studies, which surveyed and catalogued the flora and fauna of the lowland tropical forests that would be flooded with the creation of the Panama Canal. A century later, the Smithsonian in Panama is a standard-setting global platform for groundbreaking research on tropical forests and marine ecosystems and their astounding biodiversity.

Today, STRI employs 40 staff scientists and hosts some 1,400 scientific visitors every year, from undergrads and interns to postdoctoral investigators and tenured research associates. Together, they collaborate on 350 running research projects and publish more than 400 peer reviewed articles in scientific journals every year. The research is not only shared widely around the global scientific community, but also reaches policymakers in Panama and beyond, receives media coverage around the globe, and is the foundation of an outreach and training program that reaches hundreds of teachers and tens of thousands of schoolchildren every year.

Also, you will see passing  vessels on their transit through the isthmus. Your guide, usually a biology student working on an ongoing research, will brief you  about natural history, and prepare the group for the walk along a trail loop that can be done in 2-3 hours.   It starts and ends at the Visitor Center, where you will find an exhibition regarding Barro Colorado National Monument.

In it, the visitor has the oportunity to appreciate costums and believes of the village in the same way as he would experience it in the remote rainforest tribes of Darien`s jungle.

  • Fishing in Gatun lake Panama
  • All-inclusive package
  • Peacock bass
  • Age: Everyone
  • Gateway: Gamboa Panama

The Peacock Bass is not a Panama autochthonous fresh water fish. It was introduced in the late 1950s. By 1964, the lakes and rivers present at the Panama Canal Watershed were overrun with the aggresive cichlids. Since then, The Peacock Bass or "Sargento" has become the dominant sport fish species in the area, providing sport fishing opportunities.


Peacock bass fishing in pan

The Peacock Bass is very appreciated by sport firshermen due to its fighting qualities. Many travel agencies now arrange international fishing trips specifically to catch peacock bass.

The most common techniques for fishing Peacock Bass are similar to those for catching largemouth bass, with the notable exception that peacock bass usually will not strike artificial worms, a widely used lure among largemouth bass fisherman.

Their eating quality is very good. Their flesh is white and sweet when cooked, and has very little oil, making it similar in taste to or snapper, or grouper. Also, they are not excessively bony.

The presence of peacock bass in Panama has caused significant damage to the native fish assemblage, by eliminating seven out of 11 previously common fish species, and significantly reducing three others. Few measures can protect native fish once peacock bass have been introduced. After initial increase in abundance, introduced peacock bass often deplete local prey and resort to cannibalism. Therefore, by fishing peacock bass actually protects local fish.
