Darien National Park

Darien National Park

Darién National Park is a protected tropical rainforest in southernmost Panama that forms a bridge between two continents. A stretch of Pacific Coast with beaches, mangroves and swamps also belongs to the designated area.

The park's fauna is rich and diverse, but still relatively unknown because of its relative inaccessibility. The most common species include avifauna such as macaw and parrot. The harpy eagle also calls this national park home, it is the world's largest population of this species. Tapir and capybara are among the frequently seen mammals.

Two major indigenous groups, the Chocó and Kuna Indians, are still living by traditional practices within the park.
