Getting Here and Around
Barro Colorado can only be visited on tours run by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Tours leave from the STRI pier in Gamboa at 7:15 am on weekdays and 8 on weekends. The pier is on the left after the dredging division and has a parking lot. From Panama City, you can hire a taxi ($20-$30), or book through a tour operator, which will pick you up at your hotel.
