Photo Of The Day – Black Vultures Of Panama

Title: Black Vultures Of Panama

Location: Portobela, Panama, Central America (9°33’19” N 79°39’20” W)

Description: Guarding the ramparts of a 150 year old Spanish fort along the Caribbean Coast, these black vultures are beautiful. I can understand why most people are not fond of vultures, what with all the eating-dead-things habit. But I find their stare and plumage beautiful.

I’m excited to be heading back to Central America and you can join me for one of two trips in November and December 0f 2017 in Costa Rica and Panama. One trip is from Costa Rica to Panama, including a transit of the Panama Canal and a number of National Parks and islands, while the other is the same itinerary in reverse. I’d love to see you on either trip and you can save $200/cabin by using code CH2U117 when booking either of those Costa Rica/Panama itineraries.
