Parque Internacional La Amistad (Wekso)
The 4000-sq-km Parque Internacional La Amistad was established jointly in 1988 by Panama and Costa Rica – hence its name of 'Friendship Park'. In 1990 it was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site and later became part of the greater Mesoamerican Biological corridor.
Humedal de San San Pond Sak
These relatively unknown wetlands covering 160 sq km just 5km north of Changuinola harbor an incredible variety of tropical fauna. In addition to sloths, river otters, white-faced monkeys, caimans, iguanas, sea turtles and poison-dart frogs, the fresh waters of San San are also one of the few known Central American habitats for the manatee.
