Some 50km (30 miles) northwest of the capital lies Barro Colorado, the largest island in Gatun Lake, a manmade stretch of water created during the construction of the Panama Canal (and one of the world’s largest artificial lakes). The island is a biological reserve managed by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute and reputed to be one of the world’s leading natural tropical laboratories. Day trips to the island from Panama City take visitors to the small town of Gamboa from where special tours (either on foot or by boat) can be arranged.
