Lake Gatun – La Arenosa
Great Birding Spots of Panama
with photos and maps
Here is another great place to
watch Panamas Birds, in this case
from a boat on Lake Gatun. La
Arenosa, about a one houre drive
from Panama City, heading over the
Bridge of Las Americas, passing the
Arraijan – La Correra Highway and
shortly after that at El Espino turn
right of the Panamerican Highway
towards Cerro Cama and La Arenosa.
The road is in good shape and paved
all the way. In La Arenosa there are
a few spots directly on the lake
where you find locals that will rent
you one of the small boats for the
day including a guide who handles
the boat. Most folks go fishing from
here on the lake, thats another good
way to know the area or just do as
we did ask for a tour around the
lake to watch the birds and scenery.
You will probably see some Snail
Kites, Great Black Hawk’s,
Great-White-Egret’s and many other
Waterfowl birds along the way. Make
sure to go early in the morning as
in the afternoons in rains often and
you don’t want be on the boat when
lightning strikes all around.
There is also the possibility to
rent a boat in Gamboa from that side
of the lake or taking a shared tour
from the Gamboa Rainforest Resort
Hotel out to the lake and to the
Lake Gatun near La Arenosa
