I wrote a blog entry about this great place back in December of last year. I think it is a fantastic place and great if you have young children eager to learn about the natural and wildlife diversity here in Panama. They have just started a new exhibit about whales. I am certain to go. Hope many others do as well.
At the Punta Culebra Natural Center in Amador, the exhibit ‘When the giants collide: ships and the migration of whales in Panama’ is available, which receives visitors with a large whale tail outside the aquariums of the site.
Through various panels, you can learn about the marine trails used by whales when they reach the isthmus to breed in their warm waters and learn about the characteristics of these aquatic mammals.
The Punta Culebra Natural Center operates from Tuesday to Friday from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
