Panama - Poison Frog Experience: Bocas Del Toro archipelago

+ More details


The Bocas del Toro archipelago is a beautiful amount of islands in the Caribbean sea of Panama. These islands are also home of the most diverse array of varieties of poison frogs in the world. Poison frogs are small and, despite their name, are not dangerous at all (only if you swallow one… and you are not going to do such a thing, are you?). Also, handling is forbidden and the guide will find the many colorful varieties to make them proper subjects for photography. We will try macro shots, tele shots and wide angle shots, while exploring the forests of these incredibly beautiful islands. The best equipment would be DSLRs with a variety of lenses (macro, tele and wide angles), with flashes and difussor; or Bridge cameras. Even some cell phones can result in amazing photos of such bright models! These several islands surrounded by clear and magical waters re perfect to swim, snorkel, kayak and enjoy the white sand beaches walking during the day or night (in your free time).
