... concept to me, but apparently the readily accepted norm in this socialist nation. Overall I would give this tour 4 out of 5.
For the last couple of nights we checked in to the much nicer Melia Cohiba hotel. The rooms, restaurants and pool (complete with pool-side cabanas and an outdoor bar) at this hotel were fantastic, and it was worth the extra money (just over $200 USD per night) for a little luxury ...

In migration time, the birdwatchers go to the top of Ancon Hill to count the migrating raptors. We saw some nice birds, Philadelphia vireo, Prothonotary Warbler ( I missed it), Summer Tanager, Keel-billed Toucan ( I missed it), Golden-fronted Greenlet, and some ...
