Hi Chelsea... Welcome to CC! Since this is your first post and you may not know it, but the better place to connect with people on your cruise is at the Roll Calls. Actually they are called Meet and Mingles for Royal Carib. The Panama Canal board really does not get a lot of traffic, here is the link for your Roll Call : http://boards.cruisecritic.com/showthread.php?t=1637524

The last page is the most recent posts. Enjoy!

Post Birding Costa Rica and Panama

Hi Chelsie

Hope you find people to join you! we had a fantastic time birding during our Panama Canal Cruise. We birded 4 out of 6 possible ports of call.

Costa Rica and Panama were the highlights and it was crazy great!!!

I am still uploading photos, but here is a taste of what you can see in Panama (Achiote Road - not far from Colon):

Thank you yes, all but one (Guatemala) were private tours and even with Antigua - we chose the "Celebrity do it on your Own".

Our Birding guides (4 of the 6 ports) were absolutely brilliant!!! they sure made it an amazing adventure and we will hold this trip dear to our hearts.'

Hi Heather,
I noticed this post and am interested in booking private bird guides for Colon Panama and possible Puerto Limon in Costa Rica.
Do you have any recommendations?
Thank-you,
a fellow birder from Ontario
