Regarded by renowned ornithologists as one of the best birding sites in the world, Ancon Expeditions' Cana Field Station is located at 1,600 feet above sea level (500 meters) in the heart of the 1.2 million-acre Darien National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The station is made up of a set of old wooden buildings that originally served as the headquarters of the gold mine that exists there. Mining in the area ceased almost 90 years ago. However, prospectors maintained the concession rights until 1997 when Ancon Expeditions negotiated with the government of Panama to ban for good this activity within the national park and turn Cana into an ecotourism and scientific research area.

The 60,000-acre Punta Patiño Nature Reserve is the largest private natural protected area in Central America and it is part of the Darien National Park complex of preserved lands. Read More...
