Panama boasts 190 species of amphibians and 250 of reptiles. Panama is land of lush rainforests, high peaks surrounded by cloud forests and hot, dry lowlands.
VIPER HERPING EXPEDITION

This expedition is strictly planned to have the maximum amount of probabilities to encounter 21 of the 23 species of vipers and coral snakes of the country. It is going to be long and exhausting, but probably one of the most adventurous and spectacular ways to see those snakes, among many other species of reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals. We will explore rainforest in the Pacific and Caribbean, lower and upper cloud forests and dry forests trying to offer one of the most exciting and complete herping experiences ever. This is not an expedition for everybody, we believe there are few people in the world able to walk so hard to achieve all possible targets. **Please note you must be extremely physically fit to book this tour: able to walk for hours, in usually very hot/muggy conditions, traverse in rivers over slippery rocks & more**

Our goals are endemic delicacies like the yellow blotched palm viper (Bothriechis aurifer), the Guatemalan Beaded Lizard (Heloderma charlesbogerti) and the beautiful salamanders of the genus Bolitoglossa.
