Portobelo fortress Bay
Hidden Fortress of the Portobelo Bay
We’ll cross the bay of Portobelo on a motorboat and visit the San Fernando Fort, it’s cannons and fortifications.
You will learn the history of the fort including the famous pirate attacks. We will start by visiting the Bateria de San Fernando and climb up the hill to the Bateria de San Fernandito (an excellent spot for photos of Portobelo bay).
For those who want to hike more, it will be possible to climb to the top of the mountain to the “Casamatta” (an explosive powder storage room). During this trek it’s common to see birds and monkeys (Howlers or Cariblanca) among other beautiful animals.
