(Cody, WY) – Celebrated climate change scientist, Dr. Sarah Aciego, co-founder of Big Chill Adventures, has unveiled a new tour of Panama. Slated for February 11-18, 2017, highlights include: visiting the Kuna & Embara Tribes, snorkeling pristine coral reefs, white-water rafting, horseback riding, hiking an active volcano, hot springs soaking, lodging in a cloud forest treehouse, and sampling coffee from the shade-grown coffee plantations (starting at $3,600 per person).
“From volcano to beach and all points in between, Panama offers amazing landscapes, cultures, culinary delights and biodiversity,” said Aciego. “The cloud forest hosts the largest number of bird species in Central America and the sloths, turtles and monkeys round out the amazing fauna.”
